Eligible to supervise Masters and PhD (as Co-Supervisor) - email supervisor to discuss availability.


Dr Wei Zeng completed his Ph.D. at the University of Adelaide (UoA) in 2020 on the topic of pipe condition assessment using hydraulic transients, and completed his Master program at Wuhan University in 2016 on hydraulic transients in pumped storage hydropower plants. He currently works as a research fellow at UoA and a data analyst in SA Water on hydro-acoustics-based leak alarming and detection in Adelaide smart water network.

I have a strong passion for research in both hydraulic transients and hydro-acoustics. My main research interests include:

  • Hydraulic transient modelling and simulation in water distribution systems, hydropower systems and submarine pipelines;
  • Pipe condition assessment using hydraulic transients and hydro-acoustics;
  • Leak detection in water distribution systems using acoustics and smart sensor systems;
  • CFD analysis of hydraulic machinery (pump-turbine) and hydraulic systems;
  • Operation and control of hydropower systems.
