  LNG sloshing and Leidenfrost droplet dynamics – modelling gas-cushioned liquid-solid impacts with phase change
  Dr P D Hicks, Dr M N Campbell-Bannerman
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The impact of liquefied natural gas (LNG) with the walls of its containing tank and the impact of droplets with very hot surfaces are two examples of liquid-solid impacts in which the liquid may be close to thermodynamic equilibrium with the surrounding gas/vapour.
  Raindrops, pesticides, and oil spills – droplet interactions with porous and textured surfaces
  Dr P D Hicks, Dr Y Tanino
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Droplet interactions with porous and textured surfaces play a crucial role in many important physical processes including the spraying of plant leaves with…
  Polymer EOR in Carbonate Reservoirs
  Research Group: Institute of GeoEnergy Engineering
  Prof K Sorbie
Application Deadline: 31 July 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

During the oil recovery process, it is common for a significant percentage of oil in place to remain after initial operations. To increase the oil recovery, Enhanced Oil Recovery (EOR) processes may be applied – which can consist of gas, thermal, chemical or modified salinity methods.
  Numerical simulation of Deflagration, Detonation and DDT in large scale inhomogeneous reactive mixtures
  Dr A Heidari, Dr S Dembele, Dr K Volkov
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Demand for energy and petrochemical products has been on the raise in recent decades leading to huge production, transportation and storage infrastructures all around the world.
  3D Print and Additive Manufacturing of Wax and Plastic Injection Moulds.
  Dr E Sabet
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project offers a chance to work on a truly disruptive and innovative research project in the high-tech and high-value manufacturing, with very high potential impact in aerospace and energy sectors.
  Simulation Modelling of Distortion and Shrinkage in Stereolithography 3D Printing.
  Dr E Sabet
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project offers a chance to work on a truly disruptive and innovative research project in the high-tech and high-value manufacturing, with very high potential impact in aerospace and energy sectors.
  PhD CASE Studentship with Intertek: Real-time Hydrocarbon Composition Measurement using a software based sensor
  Dr C O'Malley, Dr M Willis
Application Deadline: 26 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Number of awards. 1. Start date and duration. September for 4 years. Overview. In the global oil refining marketplace, the single biggest cost is the raw feedstock - crude oil.
  Foam Flow in Porous Media: From Fundamentals to Applications
  Dr N Shokri
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

During oil production from underground oil reservoirs, only a fraction of oil tends to be extracted during the primary recovery phase, prior to the oil reservoir becoming too depleted to push additional oil out naturally.
  Glycerol purification route for reforming utilisation
  Dr V Spallina
Application Deadline: 30 September 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Raw glycerol is an abundant, cheap and green by-product from 1st and 2nd generation bio-diesel plants. Depending on the process it contains several other organic compounds resulting in a high energy source.
  Porous Media for a Green World
  Dr N Shokri
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Sustainable use of soil and water resources is crucial to preserve healthy terrestrial ecosystems and maintaining food security.
  Solute transport and precipitation in porous media
  Dr N Shokri
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

In this project, we will combine modelling and experimental approaches to extend our understanding of the processes controlling solute transport and precipitation in drying porous media.
  Development of Novel 3D-Printable Chemical Reaction and Separations Technologies for Continuous Flow Synthesis of Drugs
  Dr S Ferguson
Application Deadline: 1 July 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

In recent years flow chemistry and continuous manufacturing have been the object of increasing interest in the pharmaceutical industry.
  Crude Sulfate Turpentine as a new source of biorenewable fuel
  Prof S B Bull, Dr C Chuck
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Dwindling fossil fuel supplies and global warming mean there is an urgent need to develop biorenewable replacements for the petrochemical based fuels and lubricants consumed by the automotive industry.
  Probabilistic stability analysis and optimisation for smart power systems using stochastic distribution shaping
  Research Group: Applied Computing
  Dr Q Zhang
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Future power systems will be significantly different from their present states. The main factor we have to consider is the uncertainties.
  Simulation, optimization and control of fluid catalytic cracking unit for CO2 minimization
  Research Group: Mechanical and Process Engineering
  Dr Y John, Dr R Patel, Prof I Mujtaba
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The simulation model of Fluid Catalytic Cracking (FCC) unit and many other refinery processes maximise the yields of fuels such as gasoline, diesel, propylene and minimise the yields of CO2.
