Seminar - Computational Fluid Dynamics Application in Biomimetic and Marine Renewable Technology by Dr. Qing Xiao
日期:2018 年 06 月 20 日 ( 星期三)
Time:11:00 am – 12:00 pm


In this talk, the research work currently being performed in a CFD research group at NAOME department in the Strathclyde University will be introduced. Particular interests will focus on the investigation for bio-inspired AUV, offshore tidal and wind turbine. Other CFD and Computational Structure Dynamics (CSD) studies in ocean engineering will be described, such as the dynamic response of floating offshore structure and rigid/flexible riser Vortex Induced Vibration.
