  Reducing GHGs from the heat system - Implementation of buried infrastructure as a heat source
  Dr C Bale
Application Deadline: 8 February 2019
The UK Government has a commitment to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by at least 80% by 2050. While the last five years has seen a 50% reduction in carbon density of the electricity grid, the target is unlikely to be met without also tackling the gas network.
  Behaviour of Stainless Steel Composite Structures
  Research Group: Centre For Sustainable Environments
  Prof D Lam, Dr X Dai, Dr T Sheehan
Applications accepted all year round
The aim of this project is to increase the competitiveness of stainless steel in buildings by developing an integral and holistic approach for the application of stainless steel elements in composite structures.
  Structural Behaviour of Reusable Steel/Concrete Composite Floor Systems
  Research Group: Centre For Sustainable Environments
  Prof D Lam, Dr X Dai
Applications accepted all year round
This project aims to develop a numerical model to investigate the behaviour of reusable composite floor system to be used in steel/concrete composite structures.
  Environmental assessment of offshore wind energy devices
  Research Group: Centre For Sustainable Environments
  Prof Y Guo
Applications accepted all year round
The installation of Offshore Wind Energy Device (OWED) will inevitably alter the flow patterns around the devices. This may enhance the sediment transport and scour around the foundation, thus leading to the instability of offshore wind energy device foundation, and further resultant failure of the whole system.
  Effect of bed roughness on the spreading and dilution of gravity currents
  Research Group: Centre For Sustainable Environments
  Prof Y Guo
Applications accepted all year round
Gravity current is frequently encountered in natural (e.g. saltwater intrusion in estuary) and men-made environment (e.g. mining solution; desalination).
  Innovative slim floor system for composite constructions
  Research Group: Centre For Sustainable Environments
  Dr X Dai, Prof D Lam
Applications accepted all year round
Composite floor systems are widely used in multi-storey buildings. Conventional composite beams consist of a concrete slab on top of a steel section have been extensively used in current engineering practice.
  Geopolymer reinforced concrete structural elements
  Research Group: Centre For Sustainable Environments
  Prof A Ashour
Applications accepted all year round
Geopolymers is an alkali-activated amorphous aluminosilicious cementitious material exhibiting the ideal properties of rock-forming minerals.
  Self Sensing reinforced concrete structural elements
  Research Group: Centre For Sustainable Environments
  Prof A Ashour
Applications accepted all year round
Self-sensing concrete has recently attracted major research attention and significant commercial interests, aiming to produce smart infrastructures with elegantly integrated health monitoring abilities.
  Fibre Reinforced Polymer (FRP) Stay In Place (SIP) formwork for structural concrete elements
  Research Group: Centre For Sustainable Environments
  Prof A Ashour
Applications accepted all year round
The concept of using FRP composites for structurally integrated stay-in-place (SIP) formwork for structural concrete elements maximizes the advantages of both FRP and concrete; not only can the high strength of FRP be utilized effectively, but also FRP profiles can serve as permanent formwork.
  Modelling high-speed railway-induced vibrations around tunnels (ground-support)
  Dr C Paraskevopoulou, Dr D Connolly, Dr P Woodward, Dr M Hildyard
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
OVERVIEW. This project will be of interest to someone looking for a multidisciplinary project involving fieldwork, laboratory analysis and numerical modelling in the broad areas of tunnelling, geotechnical and geological engineering.
