Revolutionary O-Tube and Remote Survey technology developed by scientists at The University of Western Australia claimed two prizes at the Australian Gas Technology (AGT) Awards held in Perth this week.
Oceans engineer Professor David White from The University of Western Australia has been appointed new Shell EMI Professorial Chair in Offshore Engineering to strengthen world-class research and education in WA's offshore petroleum industry.
A world-class research facility that aims to protect thousand of kilometres of underwater oil and gas pipelines worth billions of dollars from destructive cyclones has won a major award for a team of engineers at The University of Western Australia.
Congratulations to Bassem Youssef who recently received the Australian Gas Innovation Award Commendation. He was recognised for his unique pipeline on-bottom stability simulation program, developed as part of his PhD study.
Professor Christophe Gaudin, Associate Professor Britta Bienen and Winthrop Professor Mark Cassidy have been awarded the Geotechnical Research Medal, by the Institution of Civil Engineers, for their paper:
ARC Postdoctoral Fellow Assistant Professor Shazzad Hossain, ARC Future Fellow Professor Mark Cassidy and their co-authors were awared the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) Best Civil Engineering Paper Award at Houston's annual Offshore Technology Conference (OTC) for 2012.
Yinghui Tian was recently promoted to Research Assistant Professor. After graduating from his Bachelor Degree (Dalian University of Technolgy, China), Tian worked at the CCCC First Harbour Consultants Ltd. He achieved his PhD in Geotechnical Engineeirng at Tianjin University in 2007. He first came to COFS as an Academic Visitor and joined the team as a Research Associate in June 2007.
Assistant Professor Shazzad Hossain, Professor Yuxia Hu and W/Professor Mark Randolph from UWA’s Centre for Offshore Foundation Systems (COFS) and School of Civil and Resource Engineering have just been awarded a significant grant as part of the Australia-China Science and Research Fund (ASCRF).
Sophisticated equipment and high-level expertise at The University of Western Australia are helping to build strong ties with our Korean neighbours who recently visited UWA to build on their knowledge of developments in the oil and gas industry.
A geotechnical engineer whose work is used to assess the stability of all major pipelines being designed to tap Australia's offshore gas resources is the overall winner of the WA Young Tall Poppy Science Awards.
