  Enhanced Oil Recovery (EOR) from depleted Sandstone and Carbonate/chalk reservoirs
  Dr P Jadhawar, Dr H Hamidi
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Nearly one third of the oil is left behind in the reservoir after the primary and secondary recovery methods of oil recovery.
  Exploitation and production from Methane Hydrate reservoirs (Arctic and Subsea porous media)
  Dr P Jadhawar, Dr J Derksen
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Naturally occurring gas (mostly methane) hydrates along the continental margins (coastal offshore) and permafrost sediments are the clean source of energy outnumbering the rest forms of conventional energy sources.
  Hydraulically fractured reservoirs and optimising EOR processes
  Dr A Sharifi, Dr R Rafati, Dr M Manzari
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Hydraulic fracturing is a method of producing hydrocarbons from shale reservoirs. Understanding the geomechanics of the reservoir is a key factor to predicting the fracture propagation and fluid flow in this type of rocks.
  Investigation of enhanced oil recovery processes in complex fractured reservoirs
  Dr A Sharifi, Dr R Rafati
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Oil recovery from fractured reservoirs is a complex process due to the presence of high-permeability fracture networks. Many processes that have been used successfully in sandstone reservoirs may not be economically feasible in fractured reservoirs.
  Pore scale investigation of geophysical properties in unsaturated porous medium
  Dr Y Zhou
Application Deadline: 29 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Pore scale modelling method has been used extensively in evaluation of single phase petrophysical properties (e.g.
  Raindrops, pesticides, and oil spills – droplet interactions with porous and textured surfaces
  Dr P D Hicks, Dr Y Tanino
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Droplet interactions with porous and textured surfaces play a crucial role in many important physical processes including the spraying of plant leaves with…
  Stratified shear flows in inclined pipes
  Dr Y Tanino, Dr D Van der A
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Stably stratified shear flows are ubiquitous in the environment and industrial systems. In the atmosphere such flows are associated with clear air turbulence.
  Numerical simulation of Deflagration, Detonation and DDT in large scale inhomogeneous reactive mixtures
  Dr A Heidari, Dr S Dembele, Dr K Volkov
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Demand for energy and petrochemical products has been on the raise in recent decades leading to huge production, transportation and storage infrastructures all around the world.
  3D Print and Additive Manufacturing of Wax and Plastic Injection Moulds.
  Dr E Sabet
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project offers a chance to work on a truly disruptive and innovative research project in the high-tech and high-value manufacturing, with very high potential impact in aerospace and energy sectors.
  Advanced CFD methods for porous media flows (JS2UF2019)
  Dr J Szmelter, Dr A Clarke
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Applications are invited for a PhD studentship to work on the development of modelling techniques, based on existing novel high resolution, massively parallel schemes with the immersed boundaries approach employed for simulation of flows in porous media.
  Process and material design and enhancement for the additive manufacturing and 3D printing of the wax materials
  Dr E Sabet
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This research project is on designing the process and material for 3D printing of the wax objects used in the investment casting process of automotive and aerospace parts.
  Simulation Modelling of Distortion and Shrinkage in Stereolithography 3D Printing.
  Dr E Sabet
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project offers a chance to work on a truly disruptive and innovative research project in the high-tech and high-value manufacturing, with very high potential impact in aerospace and energy sectors.
  Characterising thermal fatigue at mix points in industrial piping (NSIRC 227)
  Mr A Basso, Dr T London
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. Industrial pipelines are extensively used to transport fluids at high temperatures and pressures. This scope is crucial, especially for the Oil & Gas and Nuclear sectors, which are concerned about sharp temperature gradient fields.
  PhD studentship (Sponsored by TWI Ltd and Lancaster University) - Digital Process Iteration human-robot for improved brazing safety and productivity NSIRC240
  Mr N Ludford
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. Brazing is a well-established manufacturing process for a range of different safety critical components, however, a number steps are still operator dependent.
  Chemical Looping Technology integrated with dehydrogenation process
  Dr V Spallina
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Advanced energy and chemical plants require new reactors and processes designed to combine high efficiency, attractive economics and reduced pollutant emissions.
