## by Prof. Jeffrey M. Falzarano

The Marine Dynamics Lab of Prof. Falzarano is engaged in developing efficient computational analysis approaches to evaluate wave structure interaction. These structures may be ships or may be non-ship-shaped floating offshore platforms. These vessels may operate at zero forward speed or may operate in a current or at non-zero forward speed. These vessels may operate […]

Numerical Representation of Wind Turbines Research objectives are to Develop a numerically-efficient representation of a floating offshore wind turbine that may be subject to large angular motions using Euler angles and multi-body theory. Develop a numerically efficient solution methodology in which the system of n bodies is condensed to a six by six matrix of […]
