About the Project
The successful applicants will join the internationally recognised researchers in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering. Coastal cliff erosion/collapse is a major problem along the coasts of the UK and has been considered as a major national challenge. As the weather is becoming more severe, and more intense storms are coming to the shores of the UK, it is projected that the coastal cliff erosion/collapse would speed up. This project is aimed at developing a numerical model for the case of severe coastal cliff erosion occurring along the UK coasts. The model will be validated using the existing cliff erosion data and then will be employed to study the effects of extreme storm scenarios.
Applicants will be required to demonstrate their ability to apply numerical simulations in Coastal Engineering using open-source numerical packages such as OpenFOAM and TELEMAC.
Please contact Dr Mohammad Heidarzadeh at [Email Address Removed] for an informal discussion about this studentship.
Applicants will have or be expected to receive a first or upper-second class honours degree in an Engineering, Computer Science, Design, Mathematics, Physics or a similar discipline. A Postgraduate Masters degree is not required but may be an advantage.
Experience in Numerical simulations in Coastal Engineering subjects is an advantage. In addition, he/she should be highly motivated, able to work in a team, collaborate with others and have good communication skills.
