|Drilling fluids laboratory
Our drilling fluid laboratory can provide a wide range of analysis on water-based drilling fluid at standard and HPHT conditions.
The Graphene Hub's researchers utilise the Adelaide site’s specialised laboratories to transform graphene’s utility, applying it to such uses as fire-resistant coatings, biosensors, electronic and communication components, and specialised multi-use composites.
The CASR Impact Laboratory is a purpose built facility used for conducting pedestrian sub-system testing. The laboratory is the official testing facility for the pedestrian component of the Australasian New Car Assessment Program (ANCAP) and is the only facility of its kind in Australia.
With individual workshops including the Creation Studio, Fabrication Studio and Additive Studio (3D Prototyping Lab); the Innovation Studios feature a wide range of tools and equipment for students to use when working on projects.
|Labs and workshops
ECMS has a number of shared labs and a workshop that support the Schools to deliver on their learning and teaching, research objectives, as well as for industry engagement.
|Mercury Injection Porosimeter Laboratory
The Australian School of Petroleum and Energy Resources manages a state-of-the-art Mercury Injection Capillary Pressure (MICP) Porosimeter Laboratory that offers services for both university research and commercial work.
The picoFAB is a state-of-the-art advanced manufacturing facility within the University’s Faculty of Engineering, Computer and Mathematical Sciences (ECMS), focused on the generation and commercialisation of innovative semiconductor and microelectronic products.
|Sports engineering facilities
We have a range of facilities and equipment suited to sports engineering research, including wind tunnels and motion capture systems.
|Video-based optical contact angle measuring system
We manage a Video-based Optical Contact Angle Measuring System that offers services for both university research and commercial work.
Adelaide Wind Tunnel is the only industrial-scale wind tunnel in South Australia, and the second largest in Australia. It features three working sections, enabling specialist wind-engineering, aerodynamic closed-section and aerodynamic open-jet studies.
|Coobowie Marine Research Station
The Coobowie Marine Research Station provides an ideal base for education and research in South Australian coastal, marine and estuarine environments.
|Evidence Synthesis Initiative for Animal and Veterinary Sciences - ESIAVS
Our experts carry out evidence syntheses, based on published and unpublished material, to inform decision-making for industry or practice.
Our work broadly spans four themes:
|Flinders-Baudin Centre, Kangaroo Island
The centre is jointly managed by the University of Adelaide and the SA Government Department of Environment and Water, and provides an excellent base for environmental education and research.
|Koonamore Vegetation Reserve
Koonamore Vegetation Reserve is one of the longest running ecological monitoring sites in the world. Since 1926 the reserve has provided generations of scientists, students and volunteers the opportunity to study and preserve the unique arid ecology of the region.
