This work is focusing on the retrofitting of buildings for improved bushfire resilience; in particular This research aims to:

1.   Increase understanding of the need for Australian buildings to be retrofitted for improved bushfire resilience; and

2.   Develop a detailed, physics-based methodology to allow ember flight and deposition on and around buildings to be simulated using a computer.

Student project

This study is focusing on the analysis of external water spray systems that are designed to protect buildings from bushfires. Experiments are being undertaken to reveal the detailed behaviour of water sprays and the effects of wind on system performance. Computational fluid dynamics simulations will be used to extend these results, improving the understanding of how well these spray systems actually perform.
