Geotechnical Engineering PhD Projects, Programmes & Scholarships in the UK

We have 27 Geotechnical Engineering PhD Projects, Programmes & Scholarships in the UK

The concept of sustainability in ground improvement methods

Designing foundation solutions in challenging soil conditions is at the core of geotechnical engineering and every practising geotechnical engineer has come across this challenge more than once. Read more

Environmental Impact of Construction on Peatlands

Reducing greenhouse gasses (GHG) emissions is one of the main goals of the 1997 Kyoto Protocol and the Paris Agreement (signed in 2015 during COP21) which seeks to limit the global raise in temperature to 1.5 °C. Read more

Terrestrial Robotic Solutions for High-Resolution Geo-Road Asset Interactions Monitoring

Extreme weather events caused by ever changing climate conditions, including increased flooding events, underscore the urgent need for precise and high-resolution monitoring of our infrastructure systems, including the road networks. Read more

Optimizing CO2 Mineralization: From Particle Aggregation to Growth and Tailored Properties

CO. 2. mineralisation via aqueous carbonate formation can reuse captured CO. 2. to manufacture stable carbonates with a net negative carbon footprint, potentially mitigating or even replacing conventional infrastructure materials. Read more

Sonars for precise underwater autonomous vehicle (AUV) navigation.

  Research Group: Communication Technologies
There is a great interest in underwater autonomous vehicles (AUVs) and currently many companies develop AUVs for multiple applications. Read more

Mechanics of Helical Pile Installation in Chalk

Supervisory Team: David Richards, Fernando Alvarez-Borges, Madhu Murthy, Benjamin Cerfontaine. Project description. Around 70% of Europe’s offshore wind turbines are installed in the North Sea. Read more

PhD Studentship: Assessing the impact of deep shafts in urban areas - (ENG 1764)

Construction of large and deep shafts in urban areas is necessary for various construction activities, such as tunnel construction where shafts serve as integral components of the tunnel construction and often operational phases. Read more

Hydrological controls on the Vaiont landslide

The Vaiont landslide occurred in 1963 in northern Italy and has perplexed researchers ever since. Recently, however, new geological information and interpretations have led to an entirely new framework for understanding the event. Read more
