    Research in the Faculty of Science at the University of Auckland has been awarded a total of $9.6 million over the next three years for a broad range of projects, from the timing of volcanic eruptions to computer software protection.
  • Aircraft turning on the runway: how fast can they go?
    02 November 2016
    Planes don’t make money when they’re not in the air, so airlines want to know how fast they can move their passenger jets when they’re on the ground. But airliners’ tricycle design isn’t made for efficiency on the tarmac, and that’s where Professor Bernd Krauskopf’s mathematical modelling is providing valuable insights.
