About the Project

Applications are invited for a Vice Chancellor’s PhD scholarship in the School of Engineering at the University of Greenwich. The scholarship is co-funded by Polypipe Building Services, one of Europe's largest manufacturers of piping, water, and climate management systems. They specialize in delivering engineered solutions that enable a sustainable built environment.

The project aims to develop good understanding, through scientific research, the behaviour of complex multi-phase flows in vertical and horizontal piping systems. Flow regimes will be characterised under different conditions through the implementation of well-structured experimental and simulation programmes.

The research will focus on conditions leading to the initiation and propagation of transient pressure waves that are detrimental to installations. It will also seek a solution to mitigate against such effects.

An extensive experimental programme will be delivered using a newly built, large scale, testing facility at the manufacturer’s site. Facilities at the university’s Medway campus will be used to carry out numerical simulation work using CFD solvers and detailed laboratory tests.

The PhD student will work with leading academics and industrial partners and will benefit greatly from the professional development opportunities provided. The successful candidate is expected to publish the outcome in peer-reviewed journals and present findings at major international conferences.

Potential candidates need to be self-motivated, able to work with minimum supervision and have developed good research and communication skills. Candidates will also need to have good background knowledge of the dynamics of confined and open flows through the completion of a first degree or an MSc in mechanical, civil, or chemical engineering.
