PhD position summary/title: Stability and transition in compressible shear flows

Turbulence is a well-known flow phenomenon observed ubiquitously in many applications and plays a key role in increasing momentum and heat transfer in various systems. Control of turbulence has been the subject of interest in many disciplines and, to achieve optimal control, it is essential to understand laminar-turbulent transition, the process of how laminar flows become turbulent.

The transition and turbulence have been well studied for incompressible flows, but less is known for the transition in compressible flows in which the fluid compressibility introduces additional phenomena such as heat transfer, acoustic waves or even shocks if the flow is supersonic. In particular, a theoretical understanding of how compressible shear flows become unstable and turbulent via the transition is still lacking. This motivates our project with an objective to investigate mathematically and numerically laminar-turbulent transition in compressible shear flows using state-of-the-art approaches.

(08) PhD Degree – Fully Funded

PhD position summary/title: Adaptive Sensing for Energy-Efficient Reinforcement Learning

As Reinforcement Learning moves closer to real-world applications, in particular within sensor-based applications, the energy consumed by sensors becomes a significant concern. IoT devices and robots often operate on limited power sources, such as batteries. The overall objective of this project is to develop RL agents that optimize the use of sensor data to save energy in IoT devices and robotic platforms. This will involve the development of an RL framework where the agent not only learns to take actions in its environment but also decides when to activate or deactivate certain sensors. The RL agent must learn to trade-off between the information it receives from sensors and the energy consumed to acquire that information. The expected real-world impact of this project is to enhance the operational lifespan of battery-powered devices and robots in many of the real-world sensing-based applications, by making them more energy efficient.

(09) PhD Degree – Fully Funded

PhD position summary/title: Experimental and numerical study of metal pad roll instability

Aluminium is produced in Hall-Heroult reduction cells. In these cells, alumina is reduced to aluminium in molten cryolite by passing electrical current in the range of 150 to 500 kA. A reduction in the thickness of the molten cryolite by around 10% can potentially save several hundred GWh of energy consumption.

However, undesired instabilities develop in the cryolite-alumimium interface as a result of the reduction of the thickness of the molten cryolite layer. This so-called metal pad roll instability is due to the production of Lorentz forces from the presence of a vertical magnetic field and horizontal current flowing in the liquid aluminium. Investigations in actual smelting pots are costly and are under hostile conditions of around 1000 °C. At FCS, an experimental setup has been in continuous development investigating metal pad roll instability in room temperature conditions.

(11) PhD Degree – Fully Funded

PhD position summary/title: An investigation into the development of formaldehyde-free electroless copper plating

Electroless copper utilises formaldehyde as a reducing agent to deposit pure copper. However, formaldehyde is hazardous and alternative reducing agents have been sought e.g. glyoxylic acid, sodium hypophosphite, Fe(II) etc but all have their drawbacks. Although there has been some work on boron-based reducing agents such as DMAB they require closer control of the operating conditions. However, boron-based compounds, like borohydrides, offer interesting possibilities for electroless deposition. Copper-boron alloys have good electrical conductivity and are widely known to resist oxidation so they could make a significant contribution for corrosion protection of complex-shaped parts.
The project will also investigate the use of reducing sugars as alternatives to formaldehyde and the utilization of non-aqueous solvents such as deep eutectic solvents for electroless deposition of copper to see if this approach may widen the scope for alternative reducing agents.

This PhD project will build on the expertise of the University of Mons in the use of boron-based reducing agents and of deep eutectic solvents and Coventry University on Electroless Copper plating and the utilisation of reducing sugars. The programme will give you the experience of different scientific environments, different cultures, and help you expand your professional network.

PhD position summary/title: Non-Oberbeck-Boussinesq Effects in the Ultimate State of Rapidly Rotating Rayleigh-Bénard Convection

This PhD project tackles one of the key processes that drive the dynamics of planetary atmospheres and interiors: turbulent convection.

In these systems, convection is turbulent and subject to intense planetary rotation. Therefore, rapidly rotating Rayleigh-Bénard convection affords an excellent model system for many of the thermally driven and rotationally constrained flows occurring in nature. It consists of liquid or gas confined between a warm bottom boundary and a cold top boundary rotated around the vertical axis. Crucially, in planetary atmospheres and interiors, the material properties are not constant but vary with temperature and pressure, contrary to most current numerical simulations and mathematical theories. The change of the flow behaviour due to these non-constant material properties are referred to as non-Oberbeck-Boussinesq (NOB) effects.

PhD position summary/title: Does neck strength have an impact on head accelerations in footballers

No normative neck strength data is currently available for the profiling of a footballer’s neck. Before further investigations into the impact of neck strength on injury risk and the response to training interventions are possible, baseline data is required. Therefore, this PhD will establish the reliability of measuring neck strength in a football population.

Neck strength has been shown to be linked to head accelerations experienced during heading of footballs therefore, this PhD will determine the relationship between head acceleration during heading tasks and neck strength profiles of footballers. As well as investigating the impact of different neck strengthening protocols on neck strength and head accelerations in footballers.

About Coventry University, England – Official Website

Coventry University is a public research university in Coventry, England. The origins of Coventry University can be linked to the founding of the Coventry School of Design in 1843. It was known as Lanchester Polytechnic from 1970 until 1987, and then as Coventry Polytechnic until the Further and Higher Education Act 1992 afforded its university status that year and the name was changed to Coventry University.

Coventry is the larger of the two universities in the city, the other being the University of Warwick. It is the UK’s fastest growing university and the country’s fourth largest overall. It has two principal campuses: one in the centre of Coventry where the majority of its operations are located, and one in Central London which focuses on business and management courses. Coventry also governs their other higher education institutions CU Coventry, CU Scarborough and CU London, all of which market themselves as an “alternative to mainstream higher education”. Its four faculties, which are made up of schools and departments, run around 300 undergraduate and postgraduate courses. Across the university there are 11 research centres which specialise in different fields, from agroecology and peace studies to future of transport.
