  Investigation of enhanced oil recovery processes in complex fractured reservoirs
  Dr A Sharifi, Dr R Rafati
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Oil recovery from fractured reservoirs is a complex process due to the presence of high-permeability fracture networks. Many processes that have been used successfully in sandstone reservoirs may not be economically feasible in fractured reservoirs.
  An investigation into the performance and endurance of PM2020 with the application of ‘future’ fuel blends to reduce GHG emissions
  Prof J Powell-Turner
Application Deadline: 13 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The researcher will work with CREST, Panacea, Innospec and North Lincs Engineering to identify, and apply whole life cycle solutions to PM2020 as a disruptive technology.
  Hydraulically fractured reservoirs and optimising EOR processes
  Dr A Sharifi, Dr R Rafati, Dr M Manzari
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Hydraulic fracturing is a method of producing hydrocarbons from shale reservoirs. Understanding the geomechanics of the reservoir is a key factor to predicting the fracture propagation and fluid flow in this type of rocks.
  Modelling growth, deposition and breakage of dynamic particle structures (EPS2020/52)
  Dr V Francia
Application Deadline: 28 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Investigation of the structure of cohesive powders under various flow regimes. Combining AI driven tools with state-of-the-art computational fluid dynamics (CFD) and discrete element methods (DEM), we will look into how dynamic particle structures form in complex systems.
  Modelling soil dewatering and recharge for cost-effective and climate resilient infrastructure
  Research Group: Bioengineering
  Prof T. Roose
Application Deadline: 31 August 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Supervisor. Tiina Roose. Co-supervisor William Powrie. Project description. Soil is one of the most complex and important self-assembling organo-mineral composites in the world.
  The Migration of Droplets in Multi-Material Problems and Dispersed Multiphase Flows
  Dr M Lappa
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The relevance of droplet dynamics and related non-equilibrium phenomena in several industrial applications and manufacturing techniques calls for new advanced studies using the tools of thermodynamics and computational fluid dynamics.
