Dr Tahsin Tezdogan


Naval Architecture, Ocean and Marine Engineering

Personal statement

Dr Tahsin Tezdogan is currently a Reader in Fluid-Structure Interactions in the Department of Naval Architecture, Ocean and Marine Engineering (NAOME) at the University of Strathclyde, Glasgow. Dr Tezdogan received his PhD degree in 2015 from Strathclyde from the same department, with his PhD thesis entitled, 'Potential Flow and CFD-Based Hydrodynamic Analyses of Mono- and Multi-Hull Vessels’. Dr Tezdogan has a broad range of research interests, including CFD simulations of ship motions and resistance, the added resistance of ships due to waves, and the investigation of ship behaviour and performance in channels/canals. He worked on a number of internationally collaborated Newton Fund and Global Challenges projects. Currently, Dr Tezdogan is working on the EU-funded VENTuRE, MarLEM and GATERS projects as an investigator. To date, Dr Tezdogan has published more than 45 papers in highly ranked journals and has presented his research at several international conferences and workshops. In addition to this, Dr Tezdogan has acted as guest editors for an Ocean Engineering Special Issue on ‘CFD Applications in Ship and Offshore Structures’ and for an Applied Ocean Research Special Issue on 'Resistance, seakeeping and manoeuvrability of ships in restricted waters'. In April 2017 he was appointed as a Deputy Editor for Ocean Engineering journal. In September 2017, Dr Tezdogan was appointed to an ITTC Specialist Committee on Combined CFD/EFD Methods for a duration of four years. More recently he has been appointed to ITTC's Quality Systems Group for three years. He is also a member of RINA and IMarEST. Dr Tezdogan has been a Professional Affairs and Education Committee (PAEC) member of the Institute of Marine Engineering, Science & Technology (IMarEST) since 30 May 2019. Dr Tezdogan has also been selected as a Reviewer or an Evaluator for some EU- Horizon 2020 and Newton Fund calls.
