About the Project
1) the simulation of flood events based on different climate change scenarios
2) enhance the performance of the hydrodynamic model through model modifications and coupling technologies.
3) the integration of the hydrodynamic model, traffic model and the city Digital Twin
4) urban flood risk assessment on traffic networks
5) study on resilience and sustainable decision-making supports for future urban planning and development
The student undertaking this project will have the opportunity to be a University of Sheffield Grantham scholar and to take advantage of the programme of sustainability training offered. The Grantham Centre for Sustainable Futures focuses on advancing sustainability research and connecting it with the policy debate around how humans can live in a more sustainable way (grantham.sheffield.ac.uk).
Grantham scholars combine outstanding intellect with a strong commitment to public engagement, leadership and action. These ambitious individuals undertake interdisciplinary PhD research projects to help solve the challenges of sustainability. They will be supported by the Centre through a unique training programme, designed to equip them with the skills to become policy advocates and leaders in sustainability matters. Further information about Grantham Centre training programme can be found in http://grantham.sheffield.ac.uk/training/the-grantham-scholars-training-programme/.
It is recognised that candidates are unlikely to have all the skills required to complete the PhD on project commencement. The primary essential criteria are therefore the ability and willingness to learn new skills and techniques, alongside a strong first degree in a relevant subject area (e.g., Engineering, Geoscience, GIS, Computing Science etc.).
The successful candidate must start by: flexible
