Grants & Funding

In 2014, Shuhong completed the project 'Tracer Analysis of Sediment Redistribution of Tamar Estuary'.  This project was funded externally for $155k by the Launceston Flood Authority, investigating the environmental impact of seasonal raking, which helped determine the impact by tracing the particles once raked to discover where they settled. The project provided important information for decision making. Shuhong is co-supervising one PhD candidate. His 50% scholarship ($47,800) is funded by industry partner INTECSEA through research collaboration.

Shuhong is currently leading one CAT1 project of $324,000 from the Office for Learning and Teaching: Engineering Pathways for Regional Australia: Viable Platforms Built by Knowledge Partnering; and an internal project of $47,000 funded by University Tasmania Regional Development Incentives Grant Scheme 2014: Engineering Online Resources Development.

Investigation into the Response Based Analysis of Risers of Floating Systems (2015 - 2017)$47,803
Description
The research will be performed in collaboration with industry, in particular Intecsea, an offshore oil and gas company specializing in innovative front end engineering design in fields of metocean analysis and floating systems, riser and mooring systems and subsea engineering. The currently published research within the RBA filed is very limited and the work proposed will contribute to fields of interest to the offshore industry. Development of the probabilistic analysis methods for the complete floating system, including its dynamic risers, is important for the offshore industry, especially for fields in deep water and with harsh environment. Establishing consistent probabilistic methods for the analysis of the hull, moorings and the risers will enable the design process to be streamlined and will contribute to improved safety and efficiency of the floating production systems.

Working from the other side: Facing the challenges of under-ice for autonomous navigation in Antarctica (2015)$180,000
Description
One of the key subthemes of the Australian Maritime Colleges (AMC) 2014-2018 strategic plan is the development of underwater vehicles for use in the marine and Antarctic science research fields. AMC is committed to the development of an Underwater Autonomous Mapping facility. The long-term vision is to create a multi-use facility developing various robotic platforms to create solutions for specific scientific and engineering questions in coastal to ice-covered waters. One of the key current deficiencies within this research and training program is a long-term lab manager employed to help with the strategic management of the AUV facility. This proposal calls for the creation of an ongoing appointment at AMC with the specialized skillset required for research and student training. This role is critical in order to maintain and develop a research program unique in Australia and a world leader in the AUV domain.

Tracer Analysis of Sediment Redistribution of Tamar Estuary (2014)$155,080
Description
The objective of this proposed study is to understand patterns of sediment redistribution in the hydrodynamically complex Tamar Estuary resulting from sediment management activities known as raking and to provide modelling validation data on the net (up estuary or down estuary) migration of silt in the upper estuary. 100% of the funding was towards the research component. What is the research question that is being asked in this activity? Assess the redistribution of sediments resulting from sediment raking in the upper Tamar River estuary. Provide a statement on the research contribution to innovation and new knowledge in the area: Acquisition and analysis of sediment and water samples to provide a baseline from which decisions can be made on how to proceed with the sediment raking program and removal of sil from the upper Tamar River estuary.

Experimental Investigation of Hydrodynamic Properties of Mid Water Arch System (2012)$13,500
Description
A series of experimental tests will be carried out to investigate the loads and motion response of a scaled model Mid Water Arch system in a different current speeds and different flow directions. The project will determine the loads on MW A and motion response in various current speeds. Innovation is in developing knowledge of hydrodynamic properties of Mid Water Arch system for deep water oil and gas exploration.
