  CFD of coupled multiphysics in scraped surface heat exchangers
  Dr I Afgan, Dr R Prosser
Application Deadline: 31 July 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Scraped surface heat exchangers (SSHE) are widely used in (for example) the food industry, where there is a requirement for heat exchange, crystallization, aeration and other continuous processes.
  CFD simulation of batch mixing for the dispersion of viscous non-Newtonian fluids
  Dr A Keshmiri, Dr R Prosser
Application Deadline: 16 June 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Complex (structured) fluids are part of the UK’s £160Bn manufacturing portfolio, contributing principally through Fast Moving Consumer Goods (FMCG) such as shampoo or ice cream.
  Developing Cleaner Graphite For Next Generation Nuclear Reactors.
  Research Group: Nuclear Engineering
  Dr A Jones, Prof B Marsden, Dr C Sharrad
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

We are offering a fully funded PhD scholarship to examine the behaviour and performance of graphite to be used in Gen IV nuclear systems.
  Development of a Heart Bypass Surgery Optimisation Tool
  Dr A Keshmiri, Dr S Grant
Application Deadline: 31 May 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) represents the most common type of heart surgery in the world.
  Development of a Smoothed Particle Hydrodynamics (SPH) model to simulate transitions of gas-liquid two-phase flow regimes
  Prof B Rogers, Dr S Lind, Prof P K Stansby
Application Deadline: 12 June 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

For reactors in critical situations, ’Loss of Coolant’ incidents require ensuring that the core and fuel rod claddings are properly cooled when water injection is triggered by safety monitoring systems.
  Integrated Fan Noise - applying Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) Methods in order to assess Analytical Methods
  Research Group: Aerospace Engineering
  Dr A Filippone, Dr A Harwood
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Engine fans are a key component of modern gas turbine engines. Increasing by‐pass ratios have led to large diameters, complex blade geometries, deep inlets and greatly integrated systems.
  Investigation of flexural behaviour of sea-sand RC members strengthened by ICCP-SS technique
  Dr M Su, Prof Y Wang
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Sea-sand concrete can cause corrosion of steel re-bars in reinforced concrete (RC) structures, resulting in structure deterioration.
  Modelling extreme wave-current conditions and their interaction with offshore renewable energy systems
  Dr S Draycott, Prof B Rogers, Prof P K Stansby
Application Deadline: 15 July 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Summary. Extreme wave conditions determine survivability of offshore renewable energy platforms. The effect of currents has received little attention to date but is known to affect extreme wave characteristics.
  Using weather index insurance to reduce weather related risks to smallholder agriculture
  Dr B Parkes, Dr T Foster
Application Deadline: 2 June 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Climate change is one of the biggest challenges facing human society in the 21st century. Smallholder farmers, who underpin food security across the developing world, are particularly vulnerable to risks posed by extreme weather events and climate change.
