Our group is aiming to use our expertise in marine hydrodynamics to develop effective and feasible biomimetic solutions to enable advanced marine operations.
We believe biomimetics is not just "Copy & Paste". For us, the mission is to understand the needs and to address the challenges of the maritime industry by using Mother Nature as our inspiration to develop practical technological solutions.
What we do
Research Focus: Numerical and experimental marine hydrodynamics.
Industrial Sector: Energy-related marine hydrodynamics challenges. Energy harvesting in marine renewables or energy efficiency in marine vehicles.
Computational Fluid Dynamics
The simulation is to use the knowns to explore the unknowns.
We conduct CFD analysis using commercial and open-source codes with developed bespoke scripts for challenging simulations.
The experiment is to explore the unknowns.
We conducted testing for innovative designs for ships and marine renewables with the state of the art equipment and facility.
Advanced Engineering Design
Design towards application.
We conduct advanced design studies with industrial standards and consideration to push the researched technologies to production and application.
