Platform-free oil and gas extraction
Current estimates suggest Australia has over A$1 trillion of oil and gas reserves that cannot be developed by conventional methods. With sub-sea and down-hole technologies, this resource is no longer out of reach.
Dr Phil Schwarz: computational fluid dynamicist
Dr Phil Schwarz leads the Fluids Process Modelling team, which is focused on the development and application of computational fluid dynamics (CFD) and other experimental modelling techniques to equipment and processes within the minerals extraction and energy industries.
PARMS-Planning: protecting our pipelines
CSIRO’s Pipeline Asset and Risk Management System (PARMS-Planning) is a new suite of software tools that assists water utilities in analysing the costs associated with pipeline infrastructure and make informed asset and risk management decisions.
Simulator solution for national energy market
Six years of national energy market data covering demand, pricing and power dispatch leads to unique simulation tool.
Using the NEMsim simulation tool, it is now possible to represent Australia’s national energy market as a co-evolving system made up of complex interactions between participants and their associated markets.
Monitoring team receives CSIRO’s top award in 2004
A team of mathematicians and environment scientists have won CSIRO's top award for a suite of environmental mapping tools that help fight salinity.
Meet the team creating maps that help address key environmental issues.
Mastering biomarkers: detecting disease earlier
CSIRO’s researchers discover new biomarkers, or signatures, for colorectal cancer. They adapt the detection and measurement of these biomarkers to new assay technologies which allow higher throughput and content through miniaturisation – such as lab-on-a-chip formats.
New biomarkers for disease diagnosis will soon be available in a ‘lab-on-a-chip’ format.
Managing complex systems
CSIRO is applying systems and complexity theory to optimise the performance and efficiency of market areas such as manufacturing, mining, infrastructure, logistics and security.
