Advanced BioMaterials for Construction and Civil Engineering


Opens:6 September 2017

This PhD will explore how bacterially generated materials can be modified by incorporation of polymers and nanoparticles to enhance their mechanical properties. In this way, bacterially generated materials could be modified for specific tasks, such as earthquake and weather resistance.

bio-deterioration of concrete and conservation of architectural heritage


Opens:18 October 2017

Bio-deterioration of concrete strongly affects much of our built heritage and is particularly notable in wet territories like the UK or South East Asia. How to effectively solve bio-deterioration of concrete sculptures and buildings is an environmental, societal and scientific challenge.

Effect of high temperatures on cement backfill (NRVB) – Improving the safety case for deep geological disposal of radioactive waste.


Deadline:30 June 2021 Opens:6 April 2021

This project focuses on understanding the long term chemical alteration and stability of a cement (NRVB) backfill material used in GDF, at the temperatures reached in the facility. This is important to improving and developing the safety case for deep geological disposal of radioactive waste.

Advanced characterisation of hydrothermally aged cement (10 years old) – Improving the safety case for deep geological disposal of radioactive waste.


Deadline:30 June 2021 Opens:7 April 2021

This project will use a combination of 2D X-ray diffraction and scattering, 3D/2D imaging and supporting analytical measurements to determine how the cements microstructure and porosity/permeability have developed over 10 years of hydrothermal ageing.
