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.

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.
