High Temperature Solar-Thermal Research Room

Concentrating solar energy for making fuels, metals, ceramics and other chemicals has tremendous potential, particularly in Australia, where high solar fluxes are close to our mineral deposits. This laboratory uses a solar simulator (effectively a “controlled sun”) to provide a controllable indoor test facility to enable the testing and research of using solar energy in high temperature processes and other applications. It is a unique facility in this country and incorporates a novel design developed at Swinburne.

Microfluidics Room

This facility is intended to train masters-level students in the manufacture and preparation of microfluidic devices. These technologies are increasingly used in biomedical diagnostics and environmental sensing e.g. small drops of a person's body fluids may be tested at airports or hospital beds to give an immediate warning of the presence of disease.

Energy Transformation Laboratory

In this laboratory students learn fundamental aspects of fluid flow, heat transfer and electrical-machine dynamics. A wave channel allows fundamental research into ocean wave-power machines. A solar-thermal furnace is used for studies of metals smelting using solar power.

Hydraulics Laboratory

It provides a regional and national focus for developing and testing stormwater and sewer treatment devices. The laboratory has been involved with a number of water and environmental engineering research projects, including the development of the ‘Humegard Gross Pollutant Trap’, an innovative stormwater treatment device, which is now widely used across Australia for storm water treatment.
