Fire behaviour of realistic LSF wall systems

This project will investigate how Light Gauge Steel Framing (LSF) wall systems behave during a fire. This experiment will account for practical issues in construction, including floor-to-wall connections and service penetrations.It will include practical and theoretical assessment of a series of realistic connection and service penetration types that are currently used in buildings. We aim to understand how these differences affect fire resistance. …

Pre-bushfire condition assessment of buildings using drones

This project aims to investigate using drones to conduct pre-bushfire assessment for buildings in bushfire prone areas. Both traditional on-foot and drone-based condition assessments will be conducted for the selected buildings. We'll compare the effectiveness and efficiency of traditional pre-bushfire condition assessment to UAV-based technology assessments. Further, the project will investigate how we can utilise UAV-based captured data in bushfire prediction, mitigation planning and evacuation …

Bushfire performance of lightweight and fire-resistant wall panels

This project will investigate the structural bushfire performance of lightweight and fire resistant cement based blocks and wall panels. This includes axial compression tests and fire resistance tests of individual blocks currently available in the industry. The performance will be summarized based on the raw materials and the mix proportion of the blocks. …

Chemical characterisation of biomass burning smoke particles using Electrospray-Orbitrap mass spectrometry

Australian bushfires and prescribed biomass burning (BB) have a significant impact on both human health as well as global and regional climate.While emissions from traditional sources, such as vehicles and power plants are expected to decline due to more stringent regulations, air pollution from BB smoke is expected to continue growing.The impact of BB smoke particulate matter on human health will depend on their chemical and physical properties. However, that information for smoke from Australian ecosystems is very limited.The aim …
