Blast response and safety assessment of transport tunnels

Transport tunnels are important components of the transport systems in major cities. They can be vulnerable to bomb explosions caused by accidental or deliberate means.This project will evaluate the vulnerability of transport tunnels to credible blast events and the influence of key parameters. We'll then propose measures to mitigate the adverse effects of such explosions to maximise the safety of passengers, infrastructure and transport vehicles.

Application of fluorescence-activated cell sorting and confocal microscopy for the study of the microbial communities responsible for nutrient removal from domestic wastewater

The removal of nutrients like carbon, nitrogen and phosphorus from wastewater is critical to the prevention of eutrophication in receiving water systems and is carried out by complex microbial communities.Eutrophication can have devastating consequences on aquatic life and natural ecosystems, with toxic algal blooms also posing a risk to human health.Understanding the microbiology of phosphorus (P) removal from wastewater is considered essential to knowledge-based optimisation of enhanced biological P removal (EBPR) systems.Most of the species in these systems are novel …
