  PhD studentship in Hibernating turbulence in boundary-layer flows
  Dr R Whalley
Application Deadline: 10 July 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Number of awards. 1. Start date and duration. October 2020 for up to 3.5 years. Overview. Hibernating turbulence is a unique form of fluid-flow intermittency which causes the skin-friction drag force experienced by an aero- of hydrodynamic body to temporarily reduce by up to 70% [1, 2].

PhD Type

Number of awards. 1. Start date and duration. October 2020 for up to 3.5 years. Overview.
  Encapsulated Phase change materials for built environmental thermal management (Advert Reference: SF19/EE/MCE/QIAN)
  Dr Zi Qian, Prof Stewart Franks
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The project is seeking to develop the use of phase change materials encapsulated within a metal structure to passively control the local environmental temperature within an office or domestic dwelling within the comfort range of 20-30oC.
  Development of novel refrigerants with low global warming potential (Advert Reference: SF19/EE/MCE/VICENTE)
  Dr YS Vicente, Prof K Mahkamov
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

In 2016, a global environmental agreement was introduced to phase out the production and consumption of hydrofluorocarbon refrigerants with global warming potential (GWP) by years 2036 to 2047, starting in 2019.
  Super flexible electronics for wearable smart healthcare applications (Advert Ref: SF19/EE/MCE/LI)
  Dr Y Li, Dr B Xu
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Micro/Nano sensors (MEMS/NEMS) and network technologies in future engineering domain have been significantly developed in the last decade.
  Use of Secondary Raw Materials in New Product Development (Advert Reference: SF19/EE/MCE/CHEUNG)
  Dr W Cheung, Dr C Connor
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Circular economy is an emerging model that keeps resources in the economy as long as possible. Resources can be reused, creating further value while relieving environmental pressures, for example the increase use of secondary raw materials (SRMs) to reduce the dependence on virgin materials.
  Innovation readiness of public sector procurement practices in the construction industry (Advert Reference: SF19/EE/MCE/SAMWINGA)
  Dr V Samwinga, Prof D Greenwood
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Carillion’s collapse in January 2018, which will cost taxpayers at least £148 million and affected up to 30,000 subsidiary businesses, has intensified debate over the effectiveness of UK public procurement practices and how risk is dealt with.
  Novel microbial fuel design and production - a multidisciplinary approach (Advert Reference: SF19/EE/MCE/AZIMOV)
  Dr U Azimov, Prof A Burluka
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The aim of this multidisciplinary project is to experimentally produce novel microbial fuels from microalgae, organic waste and wastewater to be designed in order to improve the performance of internal combustion engines for future low-carbon hybrid powertrains and range extenders of light- and heavy-duty vehicles.
  Novel metallic alloys for fire resistant concrete composites (Advert Reference: SF19/EE/MCE/SANCHEZ)
  Dr S Gonzalez Sanchez, Dr B Nagaratnam, Dr K Poologanathan
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Concrete can be reinforced with a range of metallic materials among which steel is frequently used for its high strength at room temperature, however, the mechanical properties of carbon steel decreases beyond 300°C.
  Efficient Solar Thermal Energy Storage System Development for 24 Hours Operation (Advert Reference: SF19/EE/MCE/SHAHZAD)
  Dr MW Shahzad, Prof K Mahkamov
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The inevitable escalation in economic development has serious implications on energy and environment nexus.
  New materials for wind turbine applications (Advert Reference: SF19/EE/MCE/RAHMATI)
  Dr M Rahmati, Dr S Gonzalez Sanchez
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The UK has the world’s largest offshore wind farms, consequently it is now the most attractive location for offshore wind investment in the world, attracting investment opportunity of up to £21bn by 2020.
  Growth and characterisation of hard biocompatible coatings for medical implants (Advert Reference: SF19/EE/MCE/BIRKETT)
  Dr M Birkett, Dr J Khaliq
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

International interest in hard, biocompatible materials for use in medical implants is growing at an exponential rate. Joint replacements are now implanted in over a million patients a year worldwide and this number is predicted to increase fivefold by 2030.
  Development of electroless plating equipment for fabrics (Advert Reference: SF19/EE/MCE/LAFDI)
  Prof K Lafdi, Dr YS Vicente, Dr S Gonzalez Sanchez
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Medical fabrics are susceptible to potential damage during operating conditions. For this reason, it is important to identify when cracks occur within the material by using sensor wires, and this requires the use of thermal conductor materials.
  Textile Fibres for Wearable Energy Harvesting (Advert Reference: SF19/EE/MCE/KHALIQ)
  Dr J Khaliq, Dr B Xu
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Smart electronics or more commonly called as internet of things is a developing field in health monitoring, aerospace and in the electronics field.
  Development of novel sensors for measuring porewater pressures in soils (Advert Reference: SF19/EE/MCE/MENDES)
  Dr J Mendes, Dr M Lim
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

High capacity tensiometers (HCT) are sensors used in geotechnical engineering to monitor positive and negative porewater pressures (soil suction) up to 2MPa in soil infrastructures and for the study of unsaturated soils in the laboratory.
