Dear Colleagues, Lightweight, high-performance composite materials, such as fibre-reinforced polymers, are rapidly replacing conventional building materials. Nevertheless, these polymeric materials are often associated with life-threatening fire hazards due to the production of toxic substances in the event of fires. Fire incidents caused by these highly flammable polymers have increased dramatically over the last decade. Therefore, Read more about MDPI Molecules Special Issue “New Prospects in Flame-Retardant Materials”[…]
Due to the COVID-19 crisis, stuff and students stay at home to keep social distance. To take advantage of precious time, an online Molecular Dynamic (MD) simulation training workshop was delivered by the ARC Training Centre, which can build new research capacity for the stuff and students and fill the missing knowledge gap. During this Read more about Group Activities – MD Simulation Workshop[…]
Congratulations to Mr Cheng Wang, who has submited his PhD Thesis, for his thesis titled: “The development and implementation of a population balance method-based soot model in diffusion flames”! Cheng is currently working as a research fellow at UNSW.
On the 15 November 2019, a group of ARC Training Centre researchers from Western Sydney University (WSU) lead by A/Prof. Swapan Saha and Dr. Yaping He visited our group. During the meeting, A/Prof. Saha introduced the current research conducted in WSU and discussed future collaboration between WSU and UNSW including sharing the fire testing facility Read more about Partnership with the University of Western Sydney to create capacities in fire safety research[…]
The Australian Research Council (ARC) Training Centre for Fire Retardant Materials and Safety Technologies has been officially launched on the 2nd of July 2019.
