Molecular and fluid dynamics
This group focuses on applying advanced computer simulation technology to design and develop new materials, fundamentally understand the properties of simple and complex fluids, and model flow and heat transfer problems in engineering applications.
Subject areas extend from the dynamics behaviour and transport properties of atoms, molecules and ions in organic and inorganic materials to the flow of continuum fluid and discrete particles.
The aim of our research is to provide guidance for design and analysis of experiments through theoretical underpinning and methodological development, while maintaining a strong connection to other research programs and to industrial applications.
Our computer lab is well equipped with computer software and state-of-the-art workstations and with direct access to the High-Performance Computing (HPC) facilities of Victoria and National computational centres.
