Metallic lattice materials have shown promise for lightweight sandwich panels that provide protection against blast and shock propagation. However, little is known of their dynamic spall characteristics (when shock-compressed) and their collapse under dynamic loading.

Quantum information technology exploits quantum phenomena to create new devices in computation, communication, and metrology. Quantum state of light (or a photon) is a promising information career because of the relative easiness of creations and manipulations of photons, and direct applications to communication.
Metasurfaces are a promising new area of science and technology for the manipulation of electromagnetic waves. They have the potential to replace bulky devices such as lenses with a thin layer of patterned elements, to enable a wave to undergo focussing, steering, polarisation conversation and more general spatial/temporal filtering.
The pervasive cyber threat to DoDs, public sector and industry means cyber vulnerability and penetration assessment (CVPA) and testing is no longer an option but rather about managing an acceptable risk of how much testing is enough (Christensen, 2017 & 2015).
The aim of this project is to research coding techniques for device to device cooperative communications in IoT. Specifically, this project will investigate techniques and methods to improve the throughput and efficiency of the cooperative communications in IoT.
The aim of this project is to investigate the transition experience of students beginning an engineering degree. Of particular interest are the minority groups in engineering: women, mature age students, and at UNSW Canberra, civilian students in an otherwise military cohort.
The fifth generation of mobile communication (5G) is being designed with a trend towards using millimetre frequency bands (mmWave) with a large number of antennas at the transmitter and receiver. Due to its low scattering and reflective nature, mmWave channels are spatially sparse with communication occurring via only a few propagation paths.
Acoustic metamaterials are artificially structured media which can manipulate sound waves in unusual ways. Metasurfaces are thin layers of metamaterials, which enable wave manipulation within a compact structure.
Flight at extreme speeds challenges the very best of our engineering abilities. The structures of high-speed vehicles are subjected to fluid-thermal-structural interactions in which the deformation of the structure, induced by the aerothermodynamic loads, can in turn influence this flow field and this coupling can detrimentally deform and even catastrophically damage the vehicle. The ability to develop efficient and economical high-speed aircraft is thus limited by our current capabilities in simulating and predicting these complex interactions.
