CORE Seminar: “Modelling, Prediction & Experiment of Vortex-Induced Vibration”

2229 2229 people viewed this event.


Vortex-induced vibration (VIV) is a fundamental phenomenon found in various engineering applications where a fluid flow excites and interacts with a bluff structure. In the offshore oil and gas industry, VIV is one of major technological and economical concerns due to its critical impact on the fatigue life of cylindrical structures such as risers, cables and pipelines. This talk will present VIV research works with a long-term goal of developing a generalized reduced-order model and computationally-efficient tool for the VIV predictions. The talk will cover the modelling, prediction and experiment, highlighting several insights into VIV effects and associated nonlinear phenomena.

About the Speaker

Dr Narakorn Srinil joined the University of Strathclyde as a Lecturer in Offshore Engineering since January 2010. He obtained a PhD in Civil Engineering from the King Mongkut’s University of Technology Thonburi Bangkok in 2004. From 2004-2007, he was a Post-doctoral Fellow at the University of Rome. From 2007-2009, he was a Research Associate at the University of Aberdeen working with Wood Group MCS Kenny. His PhD research dealt with nonlinear dynamics of suspended cables whereas his postdoctoral research dealt with marine risers and VIV. Currently, his research interest is expanded to offshore wind turbine foundations, mooring lines, fluid-structure interactions, apart from marine risers, subsea cables and VIV.
