  A pioneering investigation into the particle-scale origin of strength and stiffness of clayey geomaterials
  Prof A Tarantino
Application Deadline: 30 September 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

The mechanisms at particle scale that govern the emerging response of (un)saturated fine-grained soils, such as clay and silt, are largely unknown.
  Data-driven micro-seismic signal analysis
  Dr S Pytharouli, Dr V Stankovic
Application Deadline: 31 July 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

The goal of this PhD is to develop a method for optimal acoustic and microseismic sensor placement for accurately detecting microseismic activity.
  Geophysical assessment of Lime/Clay grout injection of estuary and reservoir embankments subject to badgers burrows erosion
  Dr P Sentenac
Application Deadline: 30 September 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

According to studies, 46 % of dams and embankments failures are due to severe internal erosion (Foster et al., 2000). Animal burrowing can lead to a preferential path for the water flow and seepage through the flood embankments that could lead to a partial or total collapse of the structure.
  Global Environmental Monitoring and Policy (GEMaP) Centre for Doctoral Training: Quantifying the risks and impacts of climate change on water resources in Scotland.
  Dr J Roberts, Dr J Quigley
Application Deadline: 1 October 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Essential. The applicant should. Hold a minimum of an upper second class undergraduate degree (or equivalent) in subjects relevant to physical or environmental sciences, social sciences or maths.
  Risk assessment of bridges under flood and earthquake hazards
  Dr E Tubaldi
Application Deadline: 3 August 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

The research will require the development of advanced models for describing the sources of hazards (namely earthquakes and floods) as well as the structural vulnerability under multiple events with different intensity.
  The architecture and fluid flow properties of shallow fault systems: implications for environmental monitoring
  Dr J Roberts
Application Deadline: 1 October 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

This is an exciting opportunity to engage in international research to reduce risks of geological engineering such as Carbon Capture and Storage and to inform environmental monitoring.
  Well integrity under hydraulic pulses
  Dr S Yang, Prof Z Shipton
Application Deadline: 31 July 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

This PhD will examine the integrity of the well casing and cement containment under conditions of pulsed flow within the well. Under pulsed stimulation, it is possible that wells might deteriorate faster than in conventional working conditions.
  Prestigious Strathclyde/NPL PhD Studentship: Structural Health Monitoring of Critical Energy Infrastructure with Predictive Maintenance
  Dr P Niewczas, Dr V Livina
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The lack of risk-predictive algorithms limits the ability of engineers to perform predictive maintenance of infrastructure objects.
  An investigation into Soft Tissue Biomechanics Using Computational Fluid Dynamics
  Dr M Lappa
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Aim of the present project is the modelling and numerical simulation of soft-tissue growth in rotating bioreactors and related morphological evolution.
  Particle Dynamics in Thermally Driven Flows
  Dr M Lappa
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

We propose an investigation into a variety of dynamics and effects produced by the interaction of particles with fluid flow driven by a temperature gradient.
