"Sailing Yacht Performance Analysis" An accredited short course presented at the SNAME Marine Technology Conference & Expo, November 14, 2007, Ft. Lauderdale, Florida. Co-Instructor with Prof. Robert Beck.
Research interests include investigating free-surface hydrodynamics for analysis and design of high-performance naval craft and renewable-energy devices.
Theoretical effort is focused on accurate description of the flow about marine vessels.
Numerical research employs finite-volume and boundary element techniques to solve equations appropriate to govern the performance of ships maneuvering in waves, and energy devices and structures that operate in the ocean.
