MAE2404 Aerodynamics I


Murray obtained a B.Sc from ANU in 1981 and worked for a year at the Australian Bureau of Statistics as a Reserach Officer before joining the Bureau of Mineral Resources as an Airborne Geophysicist, making magnetic maps of Austrlia.  In 1985 he returned to Monash to undertake a B.Sc. (Hons) at Monash University in Applied Mathematics and then a Ph.D. under the joint supervision of Prof. Joe Monaghan (Monash) and Dr Frank Harlowe (Los Alamos National Laboratory).  He started Post Doctoral work with CSIRO and 1990, and stayed there until 2011 where his research focuused on the application of Computational and Experimenhtal Fluid Dynamics in applications mostly associated with the Mining and Minerals Processing Industry.  He had leadership roles in major multidisciplinary projects AMIRA P266A, P266C, P266E, P266E, ("Improving Thickener Technology") and AMIRA P599, P599A ("High Concentration Tailings Disposal") that delivered significant benefits to Australian and international mining companies.  An independant audit of the P266 projects in 2011 gave the NPV of project outcomes for sponsors as well over A$500M.  He is the co-inventer of a novel mixing device based on fluid chaos, the Rotated Arc Mixer (RAM).  He joined Monash in March 2011 as Associate Dean Research for the Faculty of Engineering and currently is a Professor in the Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering.
