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.

UK Space Agency FireSat International Partnership Programme Scholarship – MSc Satellite Applications (with Data Science)

Deadline:30 June 2019 Opens:17 May 2019

The UK Space Agency IPP Scholarship is provided by the UK Space Agency, under its International Partnership Programme which is targeted at delivering sustainable, economic or societal benefits to developing economies in line with the UN sustainable development goals (SDGs).

This scholarship is for self-funded students from Kenya, Namibia, South Africa and other African countries with excellent academic qualifications to undertake the MSc Satellite Applications (with Data Science) postgraduate taught course. 

The course is uniquely designed to address the global skills gap in satellite data utilisation by training students in satellite data acquisition, processing and interpretation using data science. Additionally, the course will deliver entrepreneurship training that will enable students to generate their own business ideas and start-ups in the area of satellite applications for sustainable development.
