About the Project
The basis of the research sits within the scope of the transient hydraulic analysis of complex fluids in pipe networks. The research provides the basic tools for design and operation under, usually abnormal operating conditions to prevent component failure and hence reduces plant costs, enhances safety and allows design optimisation. It essentially enables effective asset management. It is applicable to a wide range of industries, including mineral extraction, waste processing, the water treatment industries and the coastal management industries.
The student would join the University of Strathclyde’s 60-credit postgraduate training programme leading to the Postgraduate Certificate in Researcher Professional Development.
The student will benefit from interaction with other academics and PhD students within an active research community, as well as being embedded within the SMART Pumps for Subsurface Engineering Project, a joint EPSRC-industry funded multi-institutional partnership, and interacting and engaging with researchers at the School of Geosciences at the University of Edinburgh.
The PhD student will gain a range of technical, practical and problem- solving skills required in the hydraulic industry. With the specific technical expertise a wide range of career routes is possible, including the service industries (water, electricity, gas), consultancy, government agencies and the design and manufacture. Further academic and research routes will also be possible.
