Members of the OFFshore ITRH joined international colleagues from industry, academia and government at the 37th International Conference on Ocean, Offshore and Arctic Engineering (OMAE2018) in Madrid, Spain from June 17–22, 2018.
The forum provided international researchers, engineers, managers, technicians and students from both scientific and industrial communities with the opportunity to present advances in technology and its application to industry. In addition it provided an opportunity for global participants to exchange ideas and promote collaboration within ocean, offshore and arctic engineering.
OFFshore ITRH members in attendance included Wenhua Zhao, Scott Draper, David White, Ian Milne, Rasoul Hejazi and recent Tuck Fellowship recipient, Xiantao Zhang.
In addition to those presenting, Chief Investigator Wenhua Zhao co-chaired a session on Platform/Ship Motions and recent OFFshore ITRH visitor and Hydrodynamics specialist, Professor Bernard Molin had an Honour symposium dedicated to him on Marine and Offshore Hydrodynamics.
This annual conference is organized by The American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) which promotes the art, science and practice of multidisciplinary engineering and allied sciences around the globe.
