The Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at the University of Strathclyde in partnership with a civil engineering contractor is seeking to appoint a Knowledge Transfer Partnership Associate (22-24 months) in the area Ground Engineering with a focus on developing deep technical understanding of the principles and processes controlling the use of inorganic latent hydraulic binder as a binding agent for improving the mechanical performance of soil for Smart Surfaces.
EGU 22 – Session ERE 2.5 – Shallow geothermal systems for heating and cooling: geoscience and engineering approaches
The session ERE 2.5 at the EGU General Assembly 2022 welcomes contributions about shallow geothermal energy applications, including traditional closed- and open-loop borehole heat exchangers as well as so-called energy geostructures (e.g. thermo-active foundations, walls, tunnels).
Due to the continuing difficulties that many people in the EGU community, all around the world, are experiencing, the abstract submission deadline is being extended to friday, 14 january 2022. More info on this flyer.
The physical modelling aspect consists in developing a new small-scale model of energy pile tested in centrifuge.
The PhD subject is described at this link.
Here is the link to apply. The application deadline is 21st March 2022.
