Title: Introduction to Hydroelasticity

Date: January 6, 2020 from 11:00 – 12:00
Venue: M305 Faculty of Science, Mahidol University

Abstract
Hydroelasticity is the coupling of fluid motions with elasticity. Essentially it is any problem which requires a knowledge of elasticity and fluid mechanics to solve. There are numerous applications of this field, and I will talk about my research on four different but related problems. The first is the scattering and attenuation of ocean waves by floating ice, the second is the vibration of ice shelves, the third is the vibration of ships, and the final problem is modelling very large floating structures such as a floating runway.
