Synergic identification of prestress force, moving force and interfacial force for corroborative substructural modelling

We are looking for an appropriate PhD candidate working for a recently awarded ARC Discovery Project. The PhD candidate will work on the further improvement of the previously developed Synergic identification of prestress force [1] and moving force applying to continuous supported prestressed concrete bridges using regularisation techniques [2-7] and corroborative substructural modelling.

Discrete-event-simulation modelling in Simpy with animation

Discrete-event-simulation (DES) is a dynamic modelling technique commonly applied in areas of mining, manufacturing, services sector, transport, logistics, supply-chains and healthcare, to name a few. It provides a computerised representation of a real or proposed system which can be analysed, tested and optimised through what-if analysis. Simpy is a freely available Python package which is superior to many expensive commercially available DES software packages in terms of its flexibility to model very complex systems, and to integrate seamlessly with a …

Investigating the rise of super apps: platforms, services, adoption

Imagine you want to go to a rugby game in Brisbane in a few weeks with some friends. You will probably jump across at least a few apps – coordinating plans on WhatsApp, buying tickets from Ticketmaster, booking a ride through Uber, and paying each other back for drinks over Venmo. But what if all that activity happened in one app on your phone? Meet the so-called 'super apps'.Super apps refer to marketplaces that offer a wide range of products …

Branching processes, stochastic simulations and travelling waves

Branching processes are stochastic mathematical models used to study a range of biological processes, including tissue growth and disease transmission.This project will implement a simple stochastic branching process to generate simulations of biological growth, and then consider differential equation-based description of the stochastic model.Using computation we will compare the two models, and use phase plane and perturbation analysis to analyze the resulting traveling wave solutions.

Low Cost Catalysts for Biofuels Production

As the world transitions from fossil fuels to biomass based fuels there is a corresponding drive to create new technologies to enable this situation to come to fruition. Biofuels represent one option in terms of mitigating the impacts of global warming. The conversion of biomass to biofuels typically requires a catalyst. Many different materials have been investigated, with zeolites showing considerable promise. However, zeolite catalysts can be expensive and thus there is a challenge to create new catalysts which are …

Image-based computational model to predict intracranial aneurysm rupture (VRES)

Intracranial aneurysms are bulging, weak areas of an artery that supply blood to the brain which are relatively common. While most aneurysms do not show symptoms, 1% spontaneously rupture which can be fatal or it can leave the survivor with permanent disabilities. This catastrophic outcome has motivated surgeons to operate on approximately 30% of aneurysms despite their rate of complications arising and cost of operation.The impact of aneurysm morphology on blood flow shear stress and rupture could educate surgical decision-making …

A Human-centric eXplainable Automated Vehicle

CARRS-Q has developed a strong expertise in AV and ADAS, and operate an Automated Vehicle for its research on test track and open roads.We have collected more than 12,000km of sensor data in various Australian conditions, and we are progressing quickly to a broader understanding of safe operation of AV technologies on our roads. We are looking for PhD candidates to progress further on these topics. PhD positions are available for highly motivated domestic and/or international students to work on …

Analysing the oceanographic variables that generate and mobilise coral rubble on the GBR

There is increasing concern on the effects of global warming and how it is increasing the frequency and severity of disturbance events on the Great Barrier Reef (GBR), an enduring living structure on our planet. For example, the intensity and frequency of tropical cyclones is likely to increase and this will also reduce the time available for coral reefs to recover.Moreover, there are other factors that contribute to the vulnerability of coral to mechanical breakage, such as crown of thorns …

Elucidating the gas-phase reactivity and photochemistry of halide anions

Bromine and iodine are suspected to be responsible for most of the halogen-induced ozone loss in the stratosphere but are not currently included in atmospheric models due to a paucity of knowledge of the gas-phase chemistry and photochemistry of their anions and radicals.This project will develop and deploy advanced mass spectrometry and laser spectroscopy techniques to enable precision measurements of the reactions and photo- reactions of gas-phase iodide and bromide anions and their oxides.These state-of-the-art measurements of reaction kinetics and …

Using the Lyman dropout technique to locate distant galaxies

While present-day or more "local" galaxies are organised into a well-defined sequence, their complexity increases with redshift. Given that distant galaxies are likely causally linked with their local counterparts, astronomers are keen to analyse their physical properties to better understand the formation and evolution of galaxies through cosmic time. However, given the extreme distances, a key challenge is detecting these galaxies in the first place.The Lyman break "dropout" is an astrophysical technique used to detect distant galaxies and quasars. The …
