CFD curbs the need for speed
Computational fluid dynamics (CFD) modelling has helped identify the cause of a 'puffing' problem at a nickel smelter.
CSIRO information sciences group
This group houses the core of CSIRO’s research in astronomy, mathematical services and information and communication technologies.
Optimising medium-term planning for Rio Tinto
CSIRO is working with Rio Tinto in Western Australia’s Pilbara region to maximise throughput of their rail system by using simulations to help balance train scheduling with maintenance and other system constraints.
Risk profile analysis: guidance for the Home Insulation Safety Program
CSIRO’s top experts in risk analysis were commissioned by the Commonwealth Department of Climate Change and Energy Efficiency to give specialist advice on the scope, design, size and development of the inspection and rectification program for non-foil insulation installed under the Home Insulation Program.
Preventative Health cluster study fighting Alzheimer’s Disease
The Preventative Health National Research Flagship has launched a A$10 million research 'cluster' study into the pathogenesis and diagnosis of Alzheimer’s Disease in partnership with Neurosciences Australia, The University of Melbourne, Mental Health Research Institute, Edith Cowan University and The University of Western Australia.
Better melanoma diagnosis with SolarScan™
Australian medical instrumentation company Polartechnics came to CSIRO to develop image analysis software for a device that supports diagnosis of melanoma, skin cancer’s deadliest form.
CSIRO image analysis technology is built into SolarScan®, a device that helps doctors detect melanoma earlier.
The February 2010 issue of Process outlines a number of technologies currently being developed through CSIRO's Flagship program that aim to provide a competitive edge for iron ore, gold, nickel and alumina producers. (12 pages)
Bath time’s over for computer models
It’s time for computer models of tsunamis and storm surges to get out of the bath, according to a CSIRO researcher speaking at the Coast to Coast Conference in Brisbane on September 21, 2012. More realistic models are needed for infrastructure planners and emergency managers to better prepare for disasters.
