  Future scenarios for the deployment of autonomous vehicles in urban environments
  Dr M Beecroft, Prof J Nelson
Applications accepted all year round
It is widely anticipated that autonomous vehicles will play an important role in future urban environments, particularly in city-centres.
  Fracture permeability response to the gas adsorption/desorption process in organic rocks by coupled Hydro–Mechanical modelling
  Dr G Quan, Dr K Wu
Applications accepted all year round
Gas adsorption/desorption is an essential process related to gas transport in fractured organic rocks, such as coals and organic-rich shales.
  Prediction of proppant distribution during hydraulic fracturing process
  Dr M Manzari, Dr A Sharifi
Applications accepted all year round
Shale reservoirs are one of the important unconventional hydrocarbon resources, and play an increasingly significant role among energy resources worldwide.
  An integrated carbon capture and conversion process to produce mineral products for large-scale use
  Dr W Afzal, Dr M S Imbabi
Applications accepted all year round
Increasing demand for clean energy has led to significant research towards the development of energy-efficient and environment-friendly technological solutions of carbon capture, utilization, and storage (CCUS) which encompasses methods to remove CO2 from the flue gas and from the atmosphere, recycling the CO2 for utilization and safe storage options.
  Application of High Frequency Waves to Improve Petroleum Production from Low Energy Reservoirs
  Dr R Rafati, Dr A Sharifi
Applications accepted all year round
In many oil wells the natural energy associated with oil is not strong enough to cause flow into the production facilities. In such cases, some form of artificial lift should supplement natural energy.
  Design Optimisation of Functional Smart Structures
  Dr A Maheri, Dr P Dunning
Applications accepted all year round
Smart structures have a wide range of applications in aerospace, wind energy, automotive, bio-mechanics and robotics, to name a few.
  Dynamic Optimisation of Hybrid Renewable Energy Systems
  Dr A Maheri, Dr S Sriramula
Applications accepted all year round
Multi-objective optimisation and multi-criteria assessment and decision making is an indivisible part of the design and planning of hybrid energy systems.
  Enhancing the performance, condition, safety and reliability of offshore wind energy infrastructure systems using optimal design, inspections, structural health monitoring and structural control
  Dr P Omenzetter, Dr P Dunning, Dr S Sriramula, Dr Amir Siddiq
Applications accepted all year round
Wind turbines are exposed to frequent structural damage increasing the cost of wind energy generation. To drive these costs down, this project will develop new automated methods for detection of structural damage to wind turbines by examining vibration responses measured by sensors attached to the structure.
  Forming effects on ductility performance of a novel cold-formed steel structure
  Dr A Bagheri Sabbagh, Dr Amir Siddiq
Applications accepted all year round
Conventional light steel framing systems made of cold-formed steel (CFS) sections, producing relatively low local buckling resistance and low stiffness and strength in the joints of the frames.
  LNG sloshing and Leidenfrost droplet dynamics – modelling gas-cushioned liquid-solid impacts with phase change
  Dr P D Hicks, Dr M N Campbell-Bannerman
Applications accepted all year round
The impact of liquefied natural gas (LNG) with the walls of its containing tank and the impact of droplets with very hot surfaces are two examples of liquid-solid impacts in which the liquid may be close to thermodynamic equilibrium with the surrounding gas/vapour.
