Dr Zhiming Yuan is a lecturer of Hydrodynamics in the Naval Architecture Ocean and Marine Engineering Dept. at Strathclyde University. His research interests mainly lie in the theoretical and numerical analysis of the hydrodynamic performance of the offshore structures.
In this project, Dr. Yuan 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.
