Research Highlights


Data-centres Offer a Potential Role for Geothermal Energy Investment
CET researchers are the first to report a comprehensive analysis of the potential for data-centres to offer a low cost pathway to market for geothermal resources situated away from close access to electricity transmission lines. The work also has implications for captive industrial or residential districts.

Diagnostic Advances Provide New Capacity of Measuring Strongly Radiating, Turbulent Reacting Flows

Recent advances in diagnostic methods are providing new capacity for detailed measurement of turbulent reacting flows that are strongly radiating. Radiation becomes increasingly significant in flames containing soot and/or fine particles and increases with physical size.

Radiation, Soot and temperature Analysis Offers Breakthroughs in Understanding

IMER researchers' breakthrough measurements have advanced scientists' ability to assess the interdependence of temperature and soot in flames. This will contribute to the development of more reliable models of a wide range of processes involving complex reacting flows where both particles and radiation are important.The team from the Centre for Energy Technology, the University of Adelaide, measured the first simultaneous single-shot imaging of temperature and soot volume fraction with Nonlinear Regime Two-Line Atomic Fluorescence (NTLAF) and Laser-Induced Incandescence (LII).
