  A Multi-Sensory Approach To Buried Asset Detection
  Prof N Metje, Prof D N Chapman, Dr A Faramarzi
Application Deadline: 1 August 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

It is well known that currently no technology exists which can locate a buried asset with confidence across all expected working scenarios.
  Assessing the condition of roads and buried infrastructure using geophysical technologies
  Prof D N Chapman, Prof N Metje
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

With a growing urban population around the world, we are more than ever reliant on a healthy and functional infrastructure system.
  Creation of real-time gravity maps through data quality control and survey optimisation
  Prof N Metje, Dr M Holynski
Application Deadline: 30 August 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

One challenge with existing gravity measurements is associated with the time-consuming and complex post-processing required to convert the measured data into meaningful gravity information in order to produce initially 2D gravity maps.
  Ground (soil) modification caused by degrading (corroding) buried metallic utilities (pipes)
  Prof D N Chapman
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Iron (cast iron, ductile iron and steel) and other metallic products have historically been used frequently to make pipes for distribution of water and petroleum products globally, often buried in the ground which is chemically reactive and likely to induce degradation of the pipe / pipeline with time.
  Investigating the relationships between geotechnical and geophysical properties of the ground for assessing condition change of geotechnical assets
  Prof D N Chapman, Dr A Royal
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Geophysical surveys are becoming increasingly important in understanding the performance, and change in performance, of geotechnical assets (embankments, earth dams, etc.) over time.
  Multi-hazard risk and uncertainty quantification for rail infrastructure systems
  Dr S Kaewunruen
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The University of Birmingham, as part of a multi-university multi-disciplinary rail research team, has recently been The University of Birmingham is host…
  Numerical modelling of soil/structure interactions related to shallow urban environments
  Prof D N Chapman
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Assessing the condition of shallow buried urban infrastructure is challenging, e.g. buried pipes. However it is often the ground that supports this infrastructure that is key to its long-term performance.
  Numerical Simulation of Sustainable Anaerobic Baffled Reactors for Wastewater Treatment
  Dr B Fraga, Dr S Sharifi
Application Deadline: 10 August 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Diseases that originate in poor sanitary conditions cause 2.1M deaths every year. This situation particularly affects developing countries, as indicated by UNICEF and WHO, with only 56% of the population having access to sanitation facilities in 2010.
  Soil/Structure Interaction in Subsurface Infrastructure
  Prof D N Chapman
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The urban environment in particular is an ever changing and challenging environment, with new subsurface infrastructure interacting with the existing.
  Sustainability, Water and Future Resource Security
  Prof C D F Rogers
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The University of Birmingham in collaboration with United Utilities presents a remarkable opportunity to 2 PhD students. we are offering two fully-funded PhD studentships (fees and stipend) to take a high level view of the water treatment and supply system, and wastewater removal and treatment system, respectively.
