Project
20/017 Development of a Mechanical Aid to Remove Biofouling from an Artificial Reef

Ocean Grown Abalone Ltd has constructed the world’s largest privately-owned artificial reef, located within a 413Ha aquaculture lease in Flinders Bay, Augusta, Western Australia. The reef is used to host hatchery-reared juvenile abalone which are released onto the reef at 40-50mm average length and left to grow for 2-4 years before they are harvested for sale to export markets, with a focus on South East Asian markets.

21/012 Temporary Road Signage – Stability By The Road Side

Traffic Management (and associated signage) is a core safeguard for the public and work teams (Main Roads and Contractors). The current signs currently seem to blow down very frequently and so the idea is focused on how can the signs be made more stable and resist being blown over by wind gusts and passing vehicles, such as quad road trains.

Project
21/011 Use Of Accelerometers To Monitor Pile Vibrations Or Displacement On Timber Bridges

During recent detailed inspections of timber bridges, concerns have been raised in relation to excessive movement of timber piles under traffic loads.  Bridge inspectors are regularly reporting that piles on timber bridges are “pumping” that is displacing vertically under each axle group as a heavy vehicle passes over the bridge.

Project
21/009 Developing Proactive Solutions To Animal Strikes On Regional Roads

Livestock wandering on to roads in pastoral regions, which span over 890,000km2 of Western Australia, can be a serious road safety issue for drivers, especially at dusk and dawn.  Pastoral leases are leases over Crown land, which gives the lessee the right to graze authorised livestock on the natural vegetation.
