  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

Funding Type

PhD Type

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

Funding Type

PhD Type

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.
  Climatic responsive heating and cooling for indoor thermal environments
  Dr R Yao
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Climate change and regional climates significantly impact on energy consumption of heating and cooling for achieving thermal comfort.
  Collaboration and business value proposition in multi-organisational construction projects
  Dr S Kabiri, Dr M Shahrestani
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Despite a wealth of research on the topic of collaboration among construction participants, conflicting instances affecting project success remains as one of the challenges in construction industry with various levels of negative impacts on the output of the project.
  Collaboration in Design and Construction Teams: Exploring the factors that may influence the adoption of Integrated Project Insurance (IPI) and its potential to improve collaboration among project participants
  Prof J Connaughton
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Effective collaboration among design and construction teams is an ongoing challenge in modern building construction due primarily to the increasingly complex and highly-specialised range of inputs required from architects, engineers, specialist manufacturers and installers.
  Construction Cost Management
  Dr L Mbugua, Prof J Connaughton
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The traditional role of a Quantity Surveyor, focused on measurement and preparation of bill of quantities, is changing as the construction industry embraces new technologies.
  Control of Smart Grid Systems to Address the Energy Trilemma
  Dr B Potter
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Ensuring a secure and affordable supply of electrical energy, whilst also reducing emissions, is a key challenge faced by governments all over the world.
  Decarbonisation of the Food System
  Dr E Mohareb
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

As the world transitions to a low carbon economic system, dramatic changes will be required across the all sectors. The food system, which is currently estimated to be responsible for 20-30% of global greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, is one where particular urgency is required.
  Developing a security-minded but open and transparent digital built environment sector
  Prof C Harty
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The built environment sector in the UK has been undergoing a digital transformation.
  Flexibility in Energy Demand - the role of technology
  Dr S Smith, Prof J Torriti
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Change in electricity generation sources and increasing energy demand are bringing into question the ability of existing energy distribution networks to cope with greater variation in supply by network management measures.
