Pawsey Fridays: Understanding the ocean to improve offshore designs

25 August 2017
3:00pm - 5:00pm
Event cost: Free

Pawsey Fridays are opportunities to get to know users and Pawsey experts.

The afternoon will give you the opportunity to network and get to know both staff and users in a relaxed and informal setting while finding out more about researchers’ experiences with Pawsey systems and their outcomes.

This Pawsey Friday our special guest is Prof Liang Chengfrom the School of Civil, Environmental, and Mining Engineering at the University of Western Australia.

Prof Liang Cheng is leading a team of researchers to study hydrodynamic forces and the subsequent impact on offshore structures. Through the use of the Pawsey Supercomputing Centre infrastructure and expertise, Professor Cheng and his research team are able to conduct advanced computational fluid dynamics (CFD) simulations and make significant progress in accurately predicting hydrodynamic forces. Professor Cheng’s research will pave the way to improve structure designs, minimising cost and project risks in marine infrastructure. Join us to find out how Prof Cheng findings will continue to be a resource for engineering designs of subsea infrastructure and offshore cyclone evasion strategies.

It will be followed by a brief presentation from Pawsey staff on Pawsey system updates.

A sundowner session will also take place where a selection of drinks and snacks will be available.

Please RSVP for catering purposes.
