Dr Zhiming Yuan

Senior Lecturer

Naval Architecture, Ocean and Marine Engineering

Personal statement

I am a lecturer of Hydrodynamics in the Naval Architecture Ocean and Marine Engineering Dept. at Strathclyde University. My research interests mainly lie in the theoretical and numerical analysis of the hydrodynamic performance of the offshore structures. More recently, my research ractivities have been focusing on offshore integrated renewable energy system and sustainable island development.

The recent research directions carried out by my group include:

  1. Offshore integrated renewable energy system;
  2. Sustainable island development;
  3. Dynamics of Offshore Structures;
  4. Offshore Aquaculture;
  5. Multibody hydrodynamic interaction and wave interference;
  6. Ship-bottom, Ship-bank, Ship-lock, Ship-ship interactions;
  7. Hydrodynamic behaviors of the floating wind turbine and wave energy converter device system;
  8. Free surface waves and the bio-mimetic study on animal swim.
