PARTICLE-TURBULENCE INTERACTIONS IN WALL-BOUNDED FLOWS

Deadline:17 March 2017 Opens:3 March 2017

Nearly 70% of hydrocarbons are produced from poorly consolidated sandstone reservoirs worldwide which are inevitably mixed with sand. Sand production – as small as 0.01w% – leads to major erosion problems such as degradation of pipelines, down-hole tubing and production equipment including pumps and valves. The impinging sand particles will cause excessive damage to the surface layer, which will also reduce the effectiveness of corrosion inhibitors and enhance corrosive degradation. Meanwhile, corrosion will in return enhance erosion resulting in severe and rapid loss of surface metal (washout). The massive economic cost of erosion – particulates being the most common source – is highlighted in a Schlumberger review article which reports that erosion and synergy with corrosion annually costs the industry “tens of billions of dollars”.

Development Methodologies for Next-Generation Instrumentation for Nanosatellite

Deadline:30 June 2017 Opens:3 April 2017

Recent years have seen a rapid growth in the use of nanosatellites. However, whilst a recent National Academy of Sciences report concluded that nanosatellites “have already produced high-value science, as demonstrated by peer-reviewed publications in high-impact journals”, and that “they are useful as targeted investigations to augment the capabilities of large missions”, it also recommended technology development in four key areas; development of miniaturized instrument technology, high-bandwidth communications, precision attitude control, and propulsion. This project addresses the foremost of these priority areas, by focusing on instrument development methodologies necessary to underpin the use of nanosatellites for scientific, commercial, &/or societal benefits.

PhD Studentship Assessment Strain Effects in Pipeline Dents

Deadline:31 May 2016 Opens:3 May 2016

Applications are invited for a PhD studentship in the Department of Naval Architecture, Ocean and Marine Engineering at the University of Strathclyde under the supervision of Dr Julia Race and Dr Selda Oterkus. The aim of the PhD research is to develop a validated, pragmatic and useable model for determining the strain in pipeline dents from geometric measurements. Historically, industry codes and guidance for dent assessment have relied on a measurement of dent depth to determine acceptability. Subsequently the standards moved to set a limit on the level of strain induced in the pipe as a result of the dent as it was considered that this would give a better indication of dent acceptability than the depth. What is required is a methodology for calculating total dent strain that: i) is easy to use with measurements that can be readily made in the field or obtained from pipeline In-line inspection (ILI) data; ii) does not require intensive and expensive FEA to be conducted on every dent and iii) recognises the key parameters that contribute to strain concentration in the dent.
