  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.
  A taxonomy of cities - using urban typologies to understand the infrastructural dynamics of the UK heat supply
  Dr E Mohareb, Dr P Coker, Dr D Perrotti
Applications accepted all year round
The School of the Built Environment is currently increasing its research capacity associated with urban scale sustainability.
  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.
  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.
  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.
  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.
  Collaboration and business value proposition in multi-organisational construction projects
  Dr S Kabiri, Dr M Shahrestani
Applications accepted all year round
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
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.
  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.
  Developing a security-minded but open and transparent digital built environment sector
  Prof C Harty
Applications accepted all year round
The built environment sector in the UK has been undergoing a digital transformation.
