Dr Tahsin Tezdogan is a lecturer in Fluid-Structure Interaction in the Department of Naval Architecture, Ocean and Marine Engineering. He received his BSc and MSc degrees from Istanbul Technical University, Turkey, where he worked as a research assistant for three years before joining the University of Strathclyde. Dr Tezdogan received his PhD degree in 2015 from Strathclyde from the Department of Naval Architecture, Ocean and Marine Engineering, 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 the waves, and the investigation of ship behaviour and performance in channels/canals. To date, Dr Tezdogan has published many papers in highly ranked journals and has presented his research at several international conferences and workshops.
In this project, Dr. Tezdogan will be jointly responsible for design optimisation through carrying out numerical investigation of the hydrodynamic performance of the new vessel design. He will also cover the operability analysis of the vessel based on the given environmental conditions.
