Equipments Details


This facility builds and operates components of the Auscope Simulation Analysis and Modelling (SAM) national research infrastructure. Auscope SAM provides the community with specialised, high quality software to interrogate Earth processes that affect life at its surface.

Our software delivers robust, open-source solutions to outstanding problems in geodynamics, energy, minerals exploration, mining and natural hazards. The national facility underpins research that seeks to digitally recreate Earth processes.

The Monash facility specifically includes Underworld - an open-source, particle-in-cell finite element code tuned for large-scale geodynamics simulations, and Auscope’s participation in the Australian Scalable Drones Cloud.
