Our scientific and technical publications are an important vehicle for the dissemination of our work. 

We have several goals for our publications:

  • To communicate the results of the research program to clients and fulfil our reporting responsibilities to the Department of Defence.
  • To record the results of our research program.
  • To communicate the results of scientific research and technical information to Australian industry and academia.
  • To increase awareness of and enhance the reputation of DST Group.

The Velocity Interferometer System for Any Reflector (VISAR) is a system for recording the shock response of condensed materials. This reports on preliminary tests using the recently commissioned DSTO VISAR system, providing an assessment of the experimental set-up and accuracy of the system installation.

DSTO has significant full-scale, component and coupon test facilities that it uses to assess RAAF airframes. The efficient and accurate modelling of crack growth is a necessary capability for translating the test outputs into relevant life results for structural integrity management purposes. Effective Block Approach, or EBA, a characteristic block type modelling approach may offer an alternate path for conducting life assessments. This is anticipated to be particularly useful for full-scale test interpretation where the applied loading usually consists of repeating spectrum blocks.
