ORE Seminar: Exploring Offshore Marine Structures and Their Complex DynamicsMay 9, 12:30pm - 1:30pm
Mānoa Campus, POST 126
Technology, law and world’s appetite for more energy pushed oil-gas and renewable energy source exploration farther from the shores. Recent developments in this search have brought additional design challenges since these large offshore structures are more prone to the harsh environments around them. These factors require innovative approaches, in part because companies cannot operate in conventional ways in the Arctic region and in deep sea. This topic has critical importance to the offshore industry, particularly for the cost-effective development of new ocean structures such as floating offshore wind platforms and wind energy systems.
In the seminar, I will review my academic and professional experience and how it applies to advancing offshore engineering technology. These research themes center on studying marine hydrodynamics, ocean-based renewable energy, dynamics of offshore structures and Arctic Technology. Future research plans will also be discussed, with a focus on the School of Ocean and Earth Science and Technology’s Ocean and Resources Engineering program.
