Digital built environment: utilising digital platforms for integrated communication, cooperation and decision-making

  Research Group: Architecture, Built Environment and Planning
This PhD examines the integration of digital platforms in the built environment, with the aim of exploring the potential for protocols, methods and processes that will enable greater communication and collaboration between stakeholders. Read more

Implementation Digital twins technology to building energy management with Heat Pump

  Research Group: Architecture, Built Environment and Planning
In order to meet the task of NetZero by 2050, it is expecting 86% building heating will be supplied by heat pump. The power demanding is a challenge to implement the heat pump for buildings. Read more

Modelling heat and mass transfer during liquid hydrogen refuelling

  Research Group: Architecture, Built Environment and Planning
Liquified hydrogen (LH2) is considered as the most practical storage method onboard heavy duty vehicles (HDV), trains, ships and planes in case of long distances. Read more

Next Generation 'circular' net zero carbon concretes for the UK's offshore wind energy sector

  Research Group: Architecture, Built Environment and Planning
The UK’s offshore wind energy (OWE) sector is rapidly expanding through the deployment of 130 semi-submersible floating offshore wind turbines (FOWTs) every year, to meet future green energy demands and net zero carbon emission targets by 2050. Read more

Safety of compressed hydrogen storage systems for maritime applications

  Research Group: Architecture, Built Environment and Planning
Early rollout of maritime hydrogen-fuelled transport is taking place in the form of relatively small-scale applications and demonstration projects – service vessels, pilot boats, short-range costal ferries, etc., where hydrogen is expected to be stored in composite high-pressure tanks with nominal working pressure NWP350-700 bar.

Net-Zero vertical farming

  Research Group: Architecture, Built Environment and Planning
The Food and Agriculture Organization estimates that food production will need to increase by 70% to feed an expected global population of 9 billion in 2050. Read more

Sustainable means for the removal of emerging pathogens in the tertiary treatment of wastewaters in western and emerging economies

  Research Group: Architecture, Built Environment and Planning
21 September 2016 represented a watershed for humanity when the General Assembly of the United Nations declared that ‘Antimicrobial resistance (AMR) has become one of the biggest threats to global health and endangers other major priorities, such as human development’ (Tell et al, 2019). Read more

Theoretical Development of Supersonic Compressors for High Efficiency Industrial Heat Pumps

  Research Group: Architecture, Built Environment and Planning
The electrification of industrial heating processes is seen in conjunction with combinations of waste heat recovery applications, heat networks and geothermal energy resources which are part of the UK’s heat decarbonisation pathways. Read more

Developing new techniques to identify fugitive methane emissions and their sources

Methane is a major greenhouse gas and so contributes to climate change. Cranfield and SLB are offering an iCASE PhD studentship, developing practical methods to monitor methane emissions from point source emissions such as oil and gas facilities. Read more

A Fully-funded PhD Studentship in Hydrogen storage by bio-based molecules

The future of the energy sector depends on the development of new, economic, and non-polluting energy sources. Hydrogen offers an excellent opportunity to decarbonise all energy sectors, from transport to industry and therefore large quantities and large-scale continuation are required. Read more

Lung-deposited surface area deposition of airborne nanoparticles in different environments

Airborne nanoparticles (<100nm) are the smallest fraction of particulate matter, which can penetrate deep into the lungs, and have more severe health impacts than their larger counterparts. Read more

Hydrothermal Carbonization of Organic Waste and Biomass

The conversion of biomass into biofuels and bioenergy is fundamental to increase the amount of renewable sources and to reduce the consumption of fossil fuels-based energy, thus fulfilling the principles of a circular economy and heading towards a net zero society. Read more
