Multiphase interactions in gas-solid riser and gas-liquid bubble column

By Daniel Bartels • June 19th, 2015

Part-I: Dilute gas-solid flow in riser reveals complex gas-particle interactions that lead to formation of particle clusters. In this project, an impact of gas-particle interactions and various interparticle forces on the formation of the clusters will be investigated. Part-II: Efforts will be made to enhance our understanding on the onset of the churn turbulence regimemore…

Large scale molecular dynamics simulations of macrobiomolecular complexes

This project aims to use large scale computer simulation methods to describe the behaviour of a range of molecules of biological interest, such as cell membranes, polymeric nanoparticles and protein complexes. These biomolecular systems have importance for our understanding of (1) cell damage during cryopreservation and dehydration, (2) the delivery of drug molecules to targetedmore…

Fundamental Understanding of the Role of Single Molecular Oxygen in Spontaneous fires

By Daniel Bartels • February 18th, 2015

Some chemical reactions can occur spontaneously at room temperature, leading to self-heating, ignition and fires that result in loss of life and significant damage to Australian industries. In this project, we will identify these chemical reactions, and will develop new technologies to interrupt them to avoid spontaneous fires. AIMS: To determine the origin of themore…

Atomistic simulation of minerals and geochemistry

By david satterthwaite • February 18th, 2015

Knowledge of chemical reactions and physical processes at the atomic level is crucial to solving many problems in the geosciences. For example, biomineralisation of carbonates and phosphates is still far from understood and yet is vital to nature and biomimetic science. In the case of carbonates, these geochemical processes are also relevant to long-term geosequestrationmore…
