Dr Mingyu Kim

Research Associate

Naval Architecture, Ocean and Marine Engineering

Personal statement

I am a research assistant at NAOME (Department of Naval Architecture, Ocean and Marine Engineering), University of Strathclyde, Glasgow, UK since April 2014.

Prior to my work at University of Strathclyde, I were working as a ship initial designer, naval architect, with many successful ship new-building contracts for Hyundai Heavy Industries Co. Before that, I had worked as a researcher in ship resistance and propulsion research department for the same company carrying out a number of model tests and analysis, and relevant researches.

For the academic area, I had studied naval architecture and ocean engineering with respect to hydrodynamics and CFD as PhD study to arm my experience with specialized knowledge.

I am interested in technical aspects of ship initial design, green ship technology, stability, rules and regulations, analysis of model test and resistance and propulsive performance of ships, and hydrodynamics and CFD calculation and analysis.
