Deakin showcases 3D sheet metal forming at Numisheet 2014

Deakin's Professor Jeong Whan Yoon chaired the organising committee for Numisheet 2014.

Computer Modelling

IFM researchers use computer modelling in a number of different areas:

  • Molecular modelling and simulation are used to predict properties and behaviours of any substance composed of atoms and molecules.
  • Numerical modelling of materials is used by researchers in the automotive area to design materials for lightweight structures.
  • Advanced computer simulation technology is used to understand the properties of fluids and model flow and heat transfer problems in engineering applications.

Deakin University acknowledges the traditional land owners of present campus sites.
