报告题目：Non-linear hydrodynamic loading on a vertical cylinder: new insights from large scale of experiments
This presentation will give a brief overview of the recent developments on non-linear hydrodynamic loading on a vertical cylinder. New insights from a large scale of experiments conducted in the Danish Hydraulic Institute, Denmark will be provided. Particular attention will be paid to the analysis of high-order hydrodynamic components and the importance of these high-order non-linear wave loading on offshore structures, and how they are related to the linear components. The presentation will also discuss how the sloping bed will affect the harmonic structure of the wave loading on the cylinder,
Dr Jun Zang is the Founding Director of the Research Unit for Water, Environment and Infrastructure Resilience (WEIR) at the University of Bath, UK. She was the Chair of the PRIMaRE, Partnership of world-class research institutions based in the West, South, and South West of England for research in Marine Renewable Energy.
Dr. Zang’s research concerns the hydrodynamic loadings on urban, coastal and offshore structures and the impact of extreme events on such structures. Her research group at Bath is one of the International leading groups in developing and using advanced CFD tools in modelling complex free surface flows, wave-structure interactions, urban and coastal flooding, violent wave impact on offshore wind turbine foundations and optimisation of wave energy devices. She chaired the prestigious 30th International Workshop on Water Waves and Floating Bodies in the UK in 2015 and the 3rd PRIMaRE Conference in MRE in 2016.
