Atomistic Simulation of Hydrogen Embrittlement in Pipeline Steels

Hydrogen embrittlement is the process by which metals and alloys become brittle after exposure to hydrogen, leading to catastrophic failure. Atomistic simulations of the mechanism can guide hydrogen storage/distribution technologies.

Scallop Genome

Producing the reference genome for the King Scallop will enable research on pigment production in mollusc shells, eye development and evolution, and neurotoxin resistance mechanisms that allow some scallops to harbour high levels of toxins.

Commodity prices and growth

Periods of falling commodity prices support economic growth in commodity importers but depress growth in commodity exporters. Research on this aims to encourage central governments to form policies that stimulate growth and reduce poverty.

Simulations of turbulent reacting flows

High-performance computing enables massively parallel high-fidelity simulations of turbulent reacting flows. These simulations offer key physical insights, which play pivotal roles in the design of energy-efficient, low-emission combustors.
