  Enhancing forecasting flood inundation mapping through data assimilation
  Dr S L Dance, Dr S Vetra-Carvalho
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Flooding is major risk for lives and livelihoods around the world. In Europe alone, the annual cost due to flood damage is expected to rise to 100 billion EUR by the year 2080, due to a combination of climate change and socio-economic growth.

  A pressure governing approach for modelling of variable flow systems in Building Performance Simulation (BPS) tools
  Dr M Shahrestani, Dr S Smith, Assoc Prof E A Essah
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Heating and cooling distribution systems are the most common parts of heating, ventilation, air-conditioning and refrigeration (HVAC&R) systems, which account for a significant portion of energy used in HVAC&R systems.
  Applications of Urban Metabolism for Mitigating Resource Demands
  Dr E Mohareb
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

In an increasingly urbanized world, cities must continue to drive global economic activity whilst having a minimal impact on their environmental support systems.
  Architectural Atmospheres: Tools, Methods and Design Processes - what agents and processes are brought into play to make the notion of atmosphere operational in defining new tools and design methodologies
  Dr I Wieczorek, Prof F B Samuel
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This PhD is open to those who wish to explore and promote the sensory dimension of the built environment and, particularly, to evaluate and critically reflect on the notion of ambiance/atmosphere (as a spatial phenomenon) and its importance for the design of lived space, and thus, its implications for architectural production.
  Climatic responsive heating and cooling for indoor thermal environments
  Dr R Yao
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Climate change and regional climates significantly impact on energy consumption of heating and cooling for achieving thermal comfort.
  Control of Smart Grid Systems to Address the Energy Trilemma
  Dr B Potter
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Ensuring a secure and affordable supply of electrical energy, whilst also reducing emissions, is a key challenge faced by governments all over the world.
  Low energy domestic buildings: the impact of mechanical ventilation and heat recovery (MVHR) systems
  Assoc Prof E A Essah, Dr M Shahrestani, Dr S Smith
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

To date the majority of studies using low energy buildings for experimental measurements have looked at the buildings energy conservation and the reduction of energy use.
  Passive cooling in cities: a multi-scale modelling approach
  Dr Z Luo, Prof S Grimmond, Dr T Sun
Application Deadline: 15 August 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Passive cooling (e.g. Natural ventilation) is regarded as an important building technology to reduce energy consumption, overheating risk and promote sustainability in the built environment.
  Sustainable construction: Enhancing earth brick strength and durability through interdisciplinary analyses and biomimicry
  Dr M Vahdati, Prof I M Jones, Dr W Matthews, Dr T Lees
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This multidisciplinary project spanning built environment engineering, archaeology and biological sciences is concerned with a novel sustainable technique for enhancing the strength and durability of unfired earth bricks.
