High performance and economical adsorbents for carbon capture

Capturing excess CO2 from the atmosphere or anthropogenic emissions is key to minimising a warming climate. However, a major barrier to implementing carbon capture is the cost associated with current technologies. Therefore, development of high performance and economical materials to capture excess carbon is of great interest.

Floored

Wood is the ultimate renewable construction material. Roughly half of the dry weight of a tree is carbon which has been sucked out of the atmosphere during the life of the tree. Many common building products are made from wood that has been engineer-designed for improved performance.In this project you will have the opportunity to engage directly with industry partner Engineered Wood Products Association of Australasia (EWPAA) to study the structural performance characteristics (i.e., bending, punching shear, creep, connections, etc.) …

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.
