Advanced protective technologies for engineering structures
We provide a full range of capabilities in the protective engineering services for high profile infrastructure projects. We work to resolve security problems such as bomb blasts, ballistic, fire, earthquake, wind storm and climate change.
Asia-Pacific Research Network for Resilient Affordable Housing
We aim to develop a coordinated approach for the delivery of affordable and resilient prefabricated housing throughout the Asia-Pacific region.
Geopolymer and mineral processing
The Geopolymer and Mineral Processing Group studies the formation, molecular structure, and performance properties of novel advanced geopolymeric materials, and in the development of unconventional technology for precious metal extraction.
Impact engineering group
The aim of the impact engineering group is to develop simple solutions to sophisticated problems such as impact loading on building facades and rockfall barriers in a cost-effective manner.
Indoor air quality
Our research investigates the causes and consequences of exposure to pollutants, with a focus on indoor built environments.
Prefabricated housing manufacturing
The Centre for Advanced Manufacturing of Prefabricated Housing works with industry partners to deliver breakthrough product and process innovations that will enable the Australian housing industry to compete on a global stage.
Renewable energy and energy efficiency
The energy we consume is impacted by the technologies we use to consume it, and produce it. Our research focusses on the theoretical and practical applications of energy systems and their planning.
Structures and materials
We work closely with industry and government organisations in the design, modelling and development of advanced materials and structural systems for construction, infrastructure and defence.
