Portsmouth RML

The RML has 4 PhD project opportunities at present (titles below). These are curently self-funded projects, however we welcome any candidates with opportunities for sponsorship or access to their own funding (EU, PTDF, industry: just get in touch!).

- Source mechanics of fluid driven volcanic Earthquakes. Project Code: SEES4941019

- Bone-metal (brittle-elastic) bond durability and fatigue derived from coupled Acoustic Emission and X-ray Computed Tomography. Project Code: SEES4931019

- Measurement of Fracture Toughness under elevated pressure and temperature. Project Code: SEES4960219

- Coupled thermo-fluid-mechanics of thermally stressed granite for Hot Dry Rock geothermal reservoir applications.
