University of Surrey phd admission 2020
Description of New PhD admission 2020:
The objectives of this new PhD admission 2020 are to investigate their influence of trees on air pollutants via adopting an integrated modeling approach including particle physics, deposition properties, and health benefits of reduced concentrations on at-risk people such as asthmatics.
While the specific objectives will be defined at the beginning of the project, the broad objectives of the project will include:
- Developing a CFD-based greening model that considers detailed particle physics and green infrastructure properties, to allow assessment of the trees/hedges under different configurations such as their efficacy for roadside schools and parks
- Long-term monitoring of experiment data that could allow validation of the computational model and build an understanding of the pollutant reductions and alteration in physicochemical properties of particles;
- Optimum dimensions of relevant planting schemes and presenting the project findings in a user-friendly tool to allow policymakers/relevant stakeholders.
This is a 3-year studentship, commencing in January 2021 for PhD admission 2020
MEng/MSc or BEng in Environmental/Chemical/Civil/ Mechanical/Aeronautical/Automotive/Fluid Mechanics/Particle Physics/ /Transportation Engineering/Science .
In addition to the academic qualifications listed above, aids in computational fluid dynamics modelling of air pollution using ANYSYS/OpenFoam, as well as background/interest in air pollution monitoring/particle physics/statistical data analysis, are desirable. Relevant work experience is also useful.
Studentship for PhD admission 2020:
The studentship for PhD admission 2020 is supported by the Department of Civil & Environmental Engineering at the University of Surrey to complement the scope of EPSRC funded INHALE project. You will receive a stipend of £15,500 per annum to cover your living expenses.
