PhD Studentship at University of Kent
‣ This PhD research programme aims to develop a statistical data fusion based technique for the measurement and quantitative characterisation of multi-phase flows.
‣ General-purpose flow sensors together with temperature, pressure and electrical impedance transducers will be utilised to measure an oil/water/air flow.
‣ Electrostatic and piezoelectric sensors in conjunction with pressure and temperature transducers will be applied to measure a pneumatically conveyed coal/ biomass mixture flow.
‣ A statistical data fusion method based on Bayes’ rule for combining prior and observation information will be developed to integrate the outputs of the sensors and transducers, aiming to derive the flow rates and fractions of the individual phases in the oil/water/air flow and the component velocities and fractions of the coal/biomass/air flow.
‣ The successful applicant will be expected to undertake some teaching commensurate with their experience. Principally based at Kent, it is also envisaged that the student will visit industrial partners from time to time
