This workshop aims to encourage the exchange and sharing of technical and cultural information among the researchers of marine hydrodynamics in the Asia-Pacific region; including naval architecture, ocean engineering, underwater technology and other marine related aspects. The objectives of this program are:
The workshop welcomes papers in the aspects of hydrodynamics in the area of naval architecture, ocean engineering, underwater technology and other marine related aspects, especially concerning the following topics:
Is currently working with Hiroshima University, Japan. His research focuses on fluidics and ship marine engineering. His contribution in the maritime industry for more than 30 years has produced huge numbers of articles.
Has been involved with teaching and research concerning the theoritical and experimental hydrodynamics and hydro-mechanics of floating offshore structures over the last thirty years. He was Lloyd’s Register Professor of Offshore Engineering and Head of School of Marine Science and Technlogy at the University of Newcastle upon Tyne between May, 1996 and September, 2007. He is currently the Editor-in-Chief of Ocean Engineering Journal and Head of Department for Naval Architecture and Engineering at University of Strathclyde.
