PhD position at the University of Strathclyde, Scotland

PhD Topic: A non-destructive verification tool for imaging the 3D shape of grout injected into near surface soils

 This PhD project aims to develop a non-destructive verification tool for imaging the 3D shape of grout injected into near surface soils. Over the past 10 years, researchers at Strathclyde, in partnership with the Construction Company, BAM Nuttall, have been developing new grouting technologies for in-situ ground improvement and for repair of existing infrastructure. Key to successful commercialisation of these new grouting technologies is maintaining industrial confidence. Whilst in-situ injection strategies are highly attractive, both financially and environmentally, the physical extent of treated soil is extremely difficult to establish, making it hard to demonstrate success. An ideal solution to this issue would be to develop a tool that can detect the 3D shape of the grouted soil volume within the subsurface. At present, no commercial technology is available that can achieve this.
