UK: Coastal Structures Studentship
PhD Studentship Coastal Structures School of Civil Engineering and the Environment University of Southampton
Coastal structures are subjected to a variety of wave induced loadings, ranging from direct wave impact over wave downfall to internal pressures generated by wave generated internal water levels or by wave impacts. The magnitude of these pressures and the mechanisms which cause them are still unclear. In this project, the effects of waves on coastal structures will be investigated using model tests (physical modelling), and low budget field measurements. The project should result in an improved understanding of the various ways violent wave action can affect coastal structures.
Support is at EPSRC rates and provides full tuition fees (home / EU students) and a maintenance grant paid on a tax-free basis. In addition, there will be the opportunity to undertake a limited amount of undergraduate teaching for which payment is made.
Applicants should have, or be about to obtain, a 1st Class or 2(i) degree in Engineering, Mathematics or Physics.
Although the support covers only home / EU fees, candidates with exceptional
qualifications from outside the EU are also invited to apply.
