Swinburne University is committed to high quality research and research training that is relevant to national goals, and is of social, commercial and cultural value to the community.
Swinburne has a strong reputation in Australia and overseas as a provider of career orientated education and as a university with a commitment to research. The University maintains a strong technology base and important links with industry, complemented by a number of innovative specialist research centres which attract a great deal of international interest.
A focus for research is to improve the use of advanced computer and experimental diagnostic techniques in the solution of problems in applied physics and engineering. Engineering simulation such as Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) is used to achieve an intimate level of understanding of the physical phenomena being investigated.
Computational Fluid Dynamics and Simulation of fluid structure interaction and Heat transfer are the primary research areas that drive the need for such developments.
