Transport and Reaction Processes in Soil

Syngenta is one of the worlds leading agrochemical companies. In order to register agrochemicals in Europe it is necessary to have a detailed understanding of the processes in the environment...

Emitter-platform association

Intercepted RF electromagnetic signals provide a good long-ranged source of information on the motions and activities of people, vehicles, installations and organisations. For those emissions...

Earthquake risk

Earthquake risk models used by the insurance industry for estimating the damage caused by an event typically use the mean of the ground motion intensity to predict the damage to a particular...

Reinsurance strategy optimisation

Willis is currently investing significant resources in the development of the next generation of catastrophe models for support of the transactional business. Willis has a new experimental...

Modelling hurricane track memory

The hurricane seasons of 2004 and 2005 led to extreme losses for the (re)insurance industry. It appeared as though certain large scale atmospheric structures (such as the 'Bermuda High') were...

Underarm malodour modelling

The internship project will primarily encompass the construction of complex mathematical algorithms to aid in the development of an in silico kinetic model of axillary (underarm) malodour....

Maintenance inspection design software for full-scale industrial systems

Asset inspection and maintenance is an important activity. The ability to use data from inspections wisely, and to select how and when to inspect next, offers the opportunity for improved...

Estimation of collision rates and agglomeration in a spray drying tower

Understanding how particles collide and agglomerate in a detergent spray drying tower is very important to P&G. Being able to determine which operating conditions affect the agglomeration will...

Deconvolution of well test data

There have been many advances in well test analysis over the last thirty years of which decovolution is probably the most recent. In the context of the analysis of pressure transients recorded...

Condensation in fuel tanks

This Internship project involves fluid dynamical modelling of droplet-scale processes, with particular attention to condensation, run-off and sinking. Surface tension and contact line effects...

Advanced algorithms for scientific computing

This Internship project investigated hybrid algorithms applied to portfolio optimization problems. This includes integrating exact methods (mathematical programming) with advanced heuristic...

Development of a correlation model between the eye and blood

Lein Applied Diagnostics has developed an innovative technology to optically measure a number of parameters of the body via the eye. One of Lein’s main areas of interest is the...

Landing gear modelling

This Internship project extends knowledge about the torques and forces applied to the steering system on landing gear, particularly for large aircraft. Currently, such systems are simulated...

Placement strategy optimisation for reinsurance programmes

Reinsurance provides protection for insurance companies against the risk of losses including catastrophic events such as earthquakes, floods and wind storms. Quanti fication of the associated...
