2012 Student Conference Success

The 2012 DMTC Student Conference was a great success with sixteen students presenting updates on their research projects. The best judged presentations from each of the three domains (air, land and sea) are being given the opportunity to present their work at the 2013 DMTC Annual Conference in Canberra. Students were also educated in the areas of IP and Commercialisation and Presentation Skills. The three winners were:

Land Domain: Eric Yang, The University of Melbourne, “Structural Performance of Armour Connections Subject to Impulsive Damage”

Sea Domain: Cameron Barr, The University of Melbourne, “Equal Channel Angular Processing of Nickel Aluminium Bronze for Marine Platforms”

Air Domain: Donna Capararo – University of Queensland, “Mechano-chemical rate determining step and mechanisms of crack initiation in aircraft coatings”
