Dr Yigit Kemal Demirel


Naval Architecture, Ocean and Marine Engineering

Personal statement

Dr Yigit Kemal Demirel is a Lecturer in the Naval Architecture, Ocean and Marine Engineering Department at the University of Strathclyde, and is the International/Erasmus Exchange Coordinator of the Department. His research interests lie in computational (CFD) and experimental hydrodynamics. He is actively engaged in fundamental and industry-focussed research on the effect of roughness (hull fouling and antifouling coatings) on ship performance, energy efficiency of ships, hull-propeller optimisation and energy saving devices (ESDs).
