Dr Tahsin Tezdogan

Senior Lecturer

Naval Architecture, Ocean and Marine Engineering

Personal statement

Dr Tahsin Tezdogan is currently a senior lecturer in Fluid-Structure Interactions in the Department of Naval Architecture, Ocean and Marine Engineering (NAOME) at the University of Strathclyde, Glasgow. He is also the Director of Postgraduate Taught Programmes within NAOME. 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 as a Co-I on a project entitled “Designing safe, green and sustainable vessels for Indonesian coastal transport and fishing operations”, funded by the British Council’s Newton Fund Institutional Links Grants. Within this project Dr Tezdogan was responsible for carrying out many tasks involving hull form optimisation of such vessels’ operation in Indonesian waters, using state-of-the-art Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) methods. Following this, Dr Tezdogan received a Global Challenges Research Fund (GCRF) pump-priming fund to perfom initial engineering calculations towards an innovative floating wind-hydrokinetic power station for Egypt in collaboration with the Nile Research Institute in Cairo. Most recently, Dr Tezdogan has been successful in obtaining two projects as PI and Co-I funded by the EU. These projects started in early 2020 for 36 months.

 

To date, Dr Tezdogan has published more than 20 papers in highly ranked journals and has presented his research at several international conferences and workshops. In addition to this, Dr Tezdogan acted as a guest editor for an Ocean Engineering Special Issue on ‘CFD Applications in Ship and Offshore Structures’. In April 2017 he was appointed as a Deputy Editor for Ocean Engineering journal. More recently, in September 2017, Dr Tezdogan was appointed to an ITTC Specialist Committee on Combined CFD/EFD Methods for a duration of three years. He is also a member of WEGEMT, RINA and IMarEST. Dr Tezdogan has also been selected as a Reviewer or an Evaluator for some EU- Horizon 2020 and Newton Fund calls. He was a local organising committee member for the recent OMAE 2019 conference, in addition to being a member of the OMAE short course committee. He also delivered a short course for OMAE 2019 in June 2019.

 

Dr Tezdogan also serves on different committees at Strathclyde at Departmental, Faculty and University levels. He is a member of NAOME's Departmental Management Committee, a member of the Faculty Academic Committee and a member of University Senate.

Assessment of the current practices and local needs for developing smart antifouling strategies towards energy-efficient fishing boats in Turkey

In Turkey, there are 13,000 artisanal fishing boats contributing to the income of at least 40,000 low-income fishermen and their families living in vulnerable communities. Typically, these fishing boats are of traditional design and inefficient in terms of fuel consumption. They may waste up to 44% of their fuel due to biofouling (organisms growing on boats), which also requires costly hull cleaning and antifouling procedures. Inadequate design and antifouling strategies aggravate the profitability and cause environmental problems such as increased Green-House Gas emissions and transportation of harmful non-indigenous species, while negatively affecting the expected growth in the fisheries sector as opposed to Turkey’s Vision 2023 targets for fisheries.
This project aims to investigate the current antifouling practices and identify the local needs for developing smart antifouling strategies towards energy-efficient fishing boats. This will be achieved by carrying out a joint inter-disciplinary pilot work with partners in Turkey with a focus on the technical feasibility, economic viability and environmental perspectives.
This will help the local fisheries to understand the importance of the optimum antifouling strategies, and hence to reduce unnecessary expenses and increase the profitability while reducing the environmental footprint. This project will establish partnerships for future GCRF calls.

The majority of Egyptians live either in the Nile delta, which is located north of Cairo and is known as Lower Egypt, or in the narrow strip of agricultural land south of Cairo on either side of the River Nile, known as Upper Egypt (UE). A report by the Egyptian Central Agency for Public Mobilization and Statistics states that the poorest region in Egypt is the rural upper region (poverty rate of 49.4%). The number of villages in Egypt is 4655; around 22% of them suffer a continuous interruption of electricity. In its 2030 vision, Egypt is aiming to boost its renewable energy generation from 8% to 20%, specifically in UE. According to the Egyptian wind and current atlas, the wind and current have a high potential around the Nile which can be utilised for sustainable energy.
This project aims to investigate the concept of a floating hybrid system which will combine wind and hydropower generation for river applications, from technical feasibility, economic viability and environmental perspectives. The platform will offer a mobile, low emission and economically viable means of power generation for the poor population in UG villages. The ultimate aim is to establish partnerships for future GCRF calls.
