About this scholarship

Curtin University has three PhD scholarships available for students to participate in an ARC Linkage project "Laser Ultrasonic Monitoring for Australia's Infrastructure Assets". 

This project aims to develop technologies for monitoring health of Australia's ageing infrastructure by a unique laser ultrasonic device.  Several vital improvements in the experimental setup will be made to suit inspection of structural materials and assemblies.  Pioneering experiments will be conducted using the laser device to develop a set of techniques for monitoring the critical areas of structures with most frequently observed ageing problems.  Precise estimates of damage will be made by processing signals from a combination of simulation and experimental modelling.
