Title: Development and Implementation of a Comprehensive Robust Online Rolling Mill Model


Summary:

Significant recent advances made in the modelling of thin strip, temper and foil rolling have provided insight into new mechanisms involved in these processes. However, the complexity of the models and their intense numerical nature has not allowed the full benefits of these advances to be realised. This project aims to investigate the numerical, convergence and robustness issues of the new models with the aim of developing improved models suitable for realtime applications such as mill setup and control gain scheduling. Improved models will result in better product quality, reduced head and tail losses and increased throughput.

Title: Decision support for the optimisation of high-drain primary alkaline battery cathodes.


Summary:

Understanding high-drain cathodic discharge of alkaline batteries is vitally important to the battery materials industry as they endeavour to develop more efficient products. Current models fail to adequately address the multi-reaction reduction of electrolytic manganese dioxide (EMD), EMD particle structure and the precipitation of potassium hydroxide. This project employs a novel approach using high-level applied mathematical and numercial analysis to develop a comprehensive model of high-drain cathodic discharge. This will provide decision support for the manufacture of an optimal EMD for high-performance alkaline batteries and hence, enhance the export of EMD and provide direct economic benefit to Australia.

Title: Thermionic cooling for domestic refrigeration.


Summary:

We plan to prove the concept that a solid-state cooling element can operate in the temperature regime required for domestic refrigeration. The principle of operation is the transfer of heat by thermionic emission. A multiple-layer structure, consisting of very thin, alternating semiconductor and metal layers, has been calculated to have high efficiency. In contrast to the usual compressor-based refrigerators, a refrigerator based on this concept has no moving parts, is silent, vibration-free and low-maintenance. It is environmentally-friendly. (Conventional refrigerators contain toxic gases.) The project links experts in semiconductor theory and experiment with Australia's largest manufacturer of domestic refrigerators.

Title: Investigation of Bi-2223/Ag Superconductor Winding for the Application in an Electrical Fault Current Limiter


Summary:

As electrical power systems grow in capacity, the increased fault current must be managed. The existing electrical equipment in the systems has to be able to cope with the increased fault level. The cost of upgrading the existing equipment can be enormous; therefore it is necessary to develop a fault limiter (FCL) which cannot be built using conventional conductors. High Tc superconductors (HTSC) provide an opportunity to develop FCL by allowing some concepts to be realised. A HTSC FCL, both its principle, design techniques and performance, will be studied under this project in relation to the new HTSC technology. This research will assist the development of a practical HTSC and associated technology for HTAC applications in electrical engineering.

Title: Development of Microsensors for use in the Fastener Industry.


Summary:

This proposal seeks to exploit the commercial potential in the development of tension sensing washers for wide application in the fastener industry. The intention is to synthesise a range of advanced materials in the form of thin films by using physical vapour deposition (PVD) and pulsed laser deposition (PLD). Microfabrication techniques will then be used to laser pattern the thin films in order to generate microsensors. The physical properties of the microsensors to be tested for suitability as transducers will be resonance and piezoelectricity. The performance of the thin films as tension sensing devices will be assessed in preload and relaxation fatigue tests.

Title: Fibre Optic Adaptation of Two Photon Scanning Spot Microscopy.


Summary:

This project addresses important scientific questions crucial to Optiscan Imaging Ltd adapting their current optical-fibre-based confocal microscopes and endomicroscopes to newer multi-photon imaging modes with ultrashort laser pulses. The project will study two-photon image quality over wide ranges of pulse duration, energy and power using Optiscan single-photon microscopes and Swinburne's femtosecond-picosecond laser facilities. The dispersion and non-linear effects introduced by optical fibres will be investigated. Reverse pre-chirping will be used to reduce non-linear power effects and compensate dispersion in the fibre. Swinburne's laser micromachining facilities will be used to investigate miniaturised endomicroscope structures which are compatible with fibre-delivered ultrashort pulses.

Title: Enhanced detection of specific microorganisms using spectral fingerprinting


Summary:

The rapid and unambiguous detection of specific microorganisms (eg pathogens) in food and environmental samples is a significant challenge in modern biotechnology. We plan to develop techniques that are more sensitive, and more widely applicable, than those currently available for detecting fluorescently labelled microorganisms. To do this, we will enhance the power of current flow cytometer instruments to discriminate against background noise particles in real samples, by incorporating opto-electronic modules that capture and analyse the spectrally resolved fluorescent fingerprint of single biological cells.

Title: Research leading to the development of a multiple frequency impedance cardiography instrument.


Summary:

Impedance cardiography is the only noninvasive method, not requiring expert operator skills, of determining cardiac output. However it does not provide accurate results in clinical subjects. Present instruments use a single frequency, 70kHz, which penetrates both extracellular and intracellular compartments, subsequently small changes in cardiac blood volume cause a very small change in impedance of total fluids in the region. The project will involve fundamental research of a novel multifrequency approach to impedance cardiography (measuring extracellular fluids only) resulting in an improved sensitivity and accuracy. This fundamental research will lead to the design and development of a portable instrument.

Title: Research into low-cost optical instruments for small satellites


Summary:

We propose a collaborative research project with Auspace Limited into novel methods for designing and building low-cost optical instruments for small satellites. The research will address several issues that arise in designing and building space optics, including: understanding the implications of using of low-cost materials such as aluminium for high-precision optical surfaces; and understanding and controlling thermal effects such as radiation and heat transfer. The project will be carried out using both hardware and software models, and should place Auspace in a strong position to bid for contracts to build optical systems for Australian and foreign satellite projects.

Title: Treatment of Printing Effluent using Adsorbing Colloid Flotation


Summary:

Waste-waters containing organic components are difficult to treat using traditional sedimentation processes since these components affect the specific gravity of the solid matter to be removed. Dissolved air flotation effectively removes pollutants, but results in a concentrate that is 5 to 10% of the original volume. This project will apply a recent innovation in flotation technology to the treatment of printing effluent that contains organic solvents. This innovation has been applied to electroplating effluent, producing a concentrate which is 0.4 % of the original volume, and hence a similar improvement in effluent reduction efficiency may result when applied printing effluent.

Title: Surface characterisation of Cryptosporidium oocysts for the development of novel filtration systems for commercial applications.


Summary:

The aim of this study is to use Atomic Force Microscopy, surface force measurements and microeletrophoresis to characterise Cryptosporidium oocysts. This will allow us to create better theoretical models for the design of novel separation technologies and new strategies for its destruction. This are of study, recognised in the McClellan Report on the Sydney water crisis of 1998 as a critical element of the water treatment process, will provide fundamental information on managing the world-wide issue of the recurrence of Cryptosporidia in water supply systems. The outcomes of this study will include improved Cryptosporidium removal in water treatment processes.

Title: Novel, highly fluorescent quantum dots for bioconjugation


Summary:

Quantum Dot Corporation has developed a new method for immunoassays based on the synthesis of highly fluorescent quantum dots (small semiconductor clusters). In order to expand the range of applications, new materials must be developed with tailor-made optical and fluorescent properties. The expertise at the University of Melbourne will be used in conjunction with QDC to synthesise new quantum dots and core-shell nanoparticles capable of being utilised in multiplexed bioassay systems. The new materials will be of fundamental importance to our understanding of semiconductor band structure and charge carrier kinetics, and will drastically accelerate current methods of biological testing.

Title: Enhanced dewatering of water and waste water residuals


Summary:

Dewatering is a key area of importance to the ultimate cost of residuals/sludge processing in the water and waste water industries. This project brings together Brisbane City Council, North West Water and Yorkshire Water with the aim of significantly improving the operation and solids output of dewatering devices such as gravity thickeners through the use of controlled shear and the optimum choice of flocculant addictives. The expected outcome is significantly reduced operating costs and reduced sludge volume. In addition, control of shear in dewatering has generic implications for the improvement of dewatering processes across a broad range of industries.

Title: The electrochemical and electrokinetic properties of pigment dispersions in nonaqueous media.


Summary:

The focus of this project is in the area of digital electronic printing. Printing is electrographic and relies on the use of a toner for image reproduction. The toner consists of charged particles in a nonpolar liquid carrier containing various charging, dispersing and binding agents. The additives assist the stability, transport and fixing properties of the particles. The object of the project is to understand the influence of additives, how they affect toner chemistry, particle charging and stability, and the effect of applied electric fields of high field strengths to these particles. Successful understanding of these phenomena will enable an Australian company to expand its business activities through the commercialisation of completely new printing technology.

Title: Optimising Aggregate Structure for Effective Mine Tailings Dewatering and Disposal.


Summary:

The project aims to optimise aggregation and dewatering of tailings from mining operations. The behaviour of fine particles (e.g. clays and oxides) in aggregation, dewatering, rheology and long-term stability is central to effective disposal. These properties can be manipulated by choice of reagents chemically and structurally matched to the specific mineral surfaces of fine particles. The project will have four programs: identification of key minerals; flocculant selection by mineral; synthesis and modification of mineral mixtures; application to aggregation and dewatering. The chemical and structural matching of flocculants will be monitored by a combination of conventional and novel techniques (cryo-EM, AFM).
