  Enhanced Oil Recovery (EOR) from depleted Sandstone and Carbonate/chalk reservoirs
  Dr P Jadhawar, Dr H Hamidi
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Nearly one third of the oil is left behind in the reservoir after the primary and secondary recovery methods of oil recovery.
  Exploitation and production from Methane Hydrate reservoirs (Arctic and Subsea porous media)
  Dr P Jadhawar, Dr J Derksen
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Naturally occurring gas (mostly methane) hydrates along the continental margins (coastal offshore) and permafrost sediments are the clean source of energy outnumbering the rest forms of conventional energy sources.
  Hydraulically fractured reservoirs and optimising EOR processes
  Dr A Sharifi, Dr R Rafati, Dr M Manzari
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Hydraulic fracturing is a method of producing hydrocarbons from shale reservoirs. Understanding the geomechanics of the reservoir is a key factor to predicting the fracture propagation and fluid flow in this type of rocks.
  Investigation of enhanced oil recovery processes in complex fractured reservoirs
  Dr A Sharifi, Dr R Rafati
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Oil recovery from fractured reservoirs is a complex process due to the presence of high-permeability fracture networks. Many processes that have been used successfully in sandstone reservoirs may not be economically feasible in fractured reservoirs.
  New cleaning and waste management technologies in offshore energy installations - National Decommissioning Centre
  Dr D Vega-Maza, Dr C Fernandez-Martin, Dr W Afzal
Application Deadline: 22 August 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

A transition to a sustainable energy system calls for reducing waste, hazards, environmental and economic impacts. This project aims at developing new knowledge-based cleaning and waste management technologies that will contribute to that goal.
  Raindrops, pesticides, and oil spills – droplet interactions with porous and textured surfaces
  Dr P D Hicks, Dr Y Tanino
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Droplet interactions with porous and textured surfaces play a crucial role in many important physical processes including the spraying of plant leaves with…
  Stratified shear flows in inclined pipes
  Dr Y Tanino, Dr D Van der A
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Stably stratified shear flows are ubiquitous in the environment and industrial systems. In the atmosphere such flows are associated with clear air turbulence.
  Collaborative research on the design, fabrication and characterisation of photoelectrochemical devices to address one of the most significant challenges for solar fuels: the development of efficient, cheap and stable solar fuel production systems.
  Dr S Karuturi
Application Deadline: 1 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Photoelectrochemical (PEC) redox reactions provide an attractive means of harvesting solar energy into storable chemical fuels.
  Numerical simulation of Deflagration, Detonation and DDT in large scale inhomogeneous reactive mixtures
  Dr A Heidari, Dr S Dembele, Dr K Volkov
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Demand for energy and petrochemical products has been on the raise in recent decades leading to huge production, transportation and storage infrastructures all around the world.
  Process and material design and enhancement for the additive manufacturing and 3D printing of the wax materials
  Dr E Sabet
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This research project is on designing the process and material for 3D printing of the wax objects used in the investment casting process of automotive and aerospace parts.
