  Urban Tree for Cooling Cities
  Prof L Shao
Applications accepted all year round
This project aims to gain new and in-depth understanding of urban tree – built environment interactions. It will be carried out in the context of prevention of summer overheating and creation of comfortable outdoor and indoor living environments for city dwellers.
  Applications of Urban Metabolism for Mitigating Resource Demands
  Dr E Mohareb
Applications accepted all year round
In an increasingly urbanized world, cities must continue to drive global economic activity whilst having a minimal impact on their environmental support systems.
  Control of Smart Grid Systems to Address the Energy Trilemma
  Dr B Potter
Applications accepted all year round
Ensuring a secure and affordable supply of electrical energy, whilst also reducing emissions, is a key challenge faced by governments all over the world.
  Water Sensitive Cities and Commons: using recycled water for maintenance irrigation in order for green-blue infrastructure planting schemes to be more reliably sustained
  Dr K Hyde, Dr D Perrotti
Applications accepted all year round
Communities with existing urban water infrastructure face barriers to engagement between the urban community and the urban water environment; for example in the case of streams culverted underneath districts or unhealthy, overgrown feeder streams and ponds that seem to have no social role or function.
  A pressure governing approach for modelling of variable flow systems in Building Performance Simulation (BPS) tools
  Dr M Shahrestani, Dr S Smith, Assoc Prof E A Essah
Applications accepted all year round
Heating and cooling distribution systems are the most common parts of heating, ventilation, air-conditioning and refrigeration (HVAC&R) systems, which account for a significant portion of energy used in HVAC&R systems.
  Architectural Atmospheres: Tools, Methods and Design Processes - what agents and processes are brought into play to make the notion of atmosphere operational in defining new tools and design methodologies
  Dr I Wieczorek, Prof F B Samuel
Applications accepted all year round
This PhD is open to those who wish to explore and promote the sensory dimension of the built environment and, particularly, to evaluate and critically reflect on the notion of ambiance/atmosphere (as a spatial phenomenon) and its importance for the design of lived space, and thus, its implications for architectural production.
  Sustainable construction: Enhancing earth brick strength and durability through interdisciplinary analyses and biomimicry
  Dr M Vahdati, Prof I M Jones, Dr W Matthews, Dr T Lees
Applications accepted all year round
This multidisciplinary project spanning built environment engineering, archaeology and biological sciences is concerned with a novel sustainable technique for enhancing the strength and durability of unfired earth bricks.
  Low energy domestic buildings: the impact of mechanical ventilation and heat recovery (MVHR) systems
  Assoc Prof E A Essah, Dr M Shahrestani, Dr S Smith
Applications accepted all year round
To date the majority of studies using low energy buildings for experimental measurements have looked at the buildings energy conservation and the reduction of energy use.
  Climatic responsive heating and cooling for indoor thermal environments
  Dr R Yao
Applications accepted all year round
Climate change and regional climates significantly impact on energy consumption of heating and cooling for achieving thermal comfort.
  CFD study of the impact of green infrastructure on urban microclimate
  Dr Z Luo
Applications accepted all year round
Green infrastructure (GI) has been considered as one of most important passive air quality control strategies in cities for promoting health benefits as well as enhancing ecological service such as mitigating urban heat island.
