There is a new fully funded PhD position (for UK/EU students), working with the Nottingham Transportation Engineering Centre and the Nottingham Centre for Geomechanics at the University of Nottingham, UK.The student will work on a large multi-disciplinary EPSRC-funded project related to the assessment of new materials within railway track drainage systems.
The primary role of the student will be to develop a numerical model of the partially saturated ground water conditions beneath rail track and to use this to perform a variety drainage predictions, which will be validated against field trial and centrifuge model test data. In addition, the student will assist with in-situ installations, laboratory modelling and data collection/processing. The student will also benefit from working closely with industry partners on the project.
