Professor Feargal Brennan

James Blyth Chair

Naval Architecture, Ocean and Marine Engineering

Personal statement

My area of expertise is structural integrity and its application to ships, offshore renewables and the Oil & Gas sector.  I have published over one hundred and fifty papers in peer reviewed technical journals and conferences and sit on numerous national and international committees concerning structural integrity and offshore renewable energy.  I am director of the Cranfield - Oxford - Strathclyde Renewable Energy Marine Structures (REMS) Centre for Doctoral Training and in addition to leading a number of large industry research programmes, I am investigator of both Supergen Wind and Supergen Marine (UKCMER) EPSRC initiatives.
