Electrical interactions between Cathodic Protection systems and surface- bonded CFRP composites in RC structures Studentships

This project will seek to investigate the electrical and electrochemical interaction between carbon fibre composite strengthening system and CP system and develop suitable method(s) to mitigate the potential risk of shortening the service life of CFRP composite. The proposed research motives can result in development of specialist resin and/or isolating system to be used in situations where the coupled application of CP system and CFRP composites is needed.

Numerical modelling of coastal defences under extreme climatic events Studentships

The aim of this project is to produce robust and efficient predictive tool for the quantity of wave-by-wave overtopping, over-wash, wave pressure & loads, sediment transport and scouring for both soft and hard coastal defences. Given that industries and consultant engineers have no access to experimental facilities, such tools are vital to evaluate the performance of transformative future technologies in the coastal region.

Machine learning in statistical physics Studentships

The student will use deep neural networks to quantitatively describe phase transitions in pure and disordered spin systems. Advanced techniques such as GANs will be employed to directly sample configurations of such systems. As a result, the student will be able to map out the utility of such methods for research in statistical physics and potentially open up exciting new avenues resulting from combining approaches from different disciplines.

A new approach to modelling oil spill in the fluvial to marine transition zones Studentships

This project will need a {hD candidate willing to work with a multidisciplinary team of experts from academia and industry in finding innovative approach for cost-effective operational response to oil spill incidents in FMTZs that can be applied around the world.

Investigation into Selective Catalyst Reduction spray formulation and use of various liquid reductants Studentships

Studies assume that all the reductant is evaporated at the entry of the SCR domain because of the long mixing length, but this may not be the case in the close-coupled system with a much shorter mixing length. Although the droplet deposition problem could be avoided by other means, such as calibration, this may not work at extreme operating conditions, e.g. low mass flow rate and low temperature. Since the active SCR system will be the major emissions control device in the next generation diesel engines, it is important to have a thorough understanding of such failure modes and find ways to minimize its impact on product development and warranty. This study will be focused on injection of different reductants’ droplets of various fractions into SCR to investigate their impact on system efficiency.

The Lanchester Interactive Archive at Coventry PechaKucha Night News

On February 27th, three Outreach Workers from the Lanchester Interactive Archive (LIA) delivered a presentation at the 36th PechaKucha Night in Coventry.

Centre for Postdigital Cultures Launched News

On Wednesday the 7th of February, the Centre for Postdigital Cultures (CPC), a new Faculty Research Centre at Coventry University, held it’s ‘soft’ launch in the form a day-long event on the top floor of the Lanchester Library, where the CPC is now based. As part of this event we held workshops in the morning with the researchers, students and research associates that together make up the CPC, in order to collectively outline some of the values, politics and potentialities we would like to promote as a research centre.

Rukshanda Naz Alumnus Reflection News

I am an activist in the Pakistani women’s movement since the early 1990s. A lawyer by profession, I also worked with a number of NGOs on issues of violence against women and children and on women’s empowerment programs. My work for peace started with issues of Afghan Refugees and peace movements for India and Pakistan.  As a professional, I have served one of the country’s leading civil society organizations for women’s rights, Aurat Foundation, as Resident Director from May 1993-May 2008 and Chief Operating Officer May 2008-Oct 2009.
