PhD studentships, Supergen ORE x3

Location: University of Plymouth

All are supported for 3 years and include full home tuition fees plus a stipend of £16,062.00 per annum (2022/23 rate).

PhD studentship: Hybrid structures for coastal defence and wave energy

This research focusses on experimental and numerical approaches for investigating the design and performance of hybrid coastal structures that provide both coastal protection and clean energy production.

PhD studentship: Biomimicry for de-risking ORE installations

This PhD would look to investigate the world of biomimetic design, and establish how it could enhance the development of ORE structures. The scope of the PhD is not limited in terms of directions of investigation, whether it be at a micro-scale or a macro-scale, and could target solutions in materials, chemistry, mechanical design, rigid body dynamics, structural modelling and hydrodynamics, to name only a few disciplines.


PhD studentship: Integrated modelling of floating offshore wind turbine systems

Supported by the Offshore Renewable Energy Catapult, the aim of this PhD studentship is to develop a numerical tool for design of floating offshore wind turbines (FOWT) systems. The project will investigate coupling approaches and, using a partitioned framework, will combine the important physics in a fully coupled modelling tool.
