Tahsin Tezdogan

Senior Lecturer

Personal Statement

Dr Tahsin Tezdogan is currently a senior lecturer in Fluid-Structure Interactions in the Department of Naval Architecture, Ocean and Marine Engineering (NAOME) at the University of Strathclyde, Glasgow. He is also the Director of Postgraduate Taught Programmes in NAOME. Dr Tezdogan received his PhD degree in 2015 from Strathclyde from the same department, with his PhD thesis entitled, ‘Potential Flow and CFD-Based Hydrodynamic Analyses of Mono- and Multi-Hull Vessels’.

 

Dr Tezdogan has a broad range of research interests, including CFD simulations of ship motions and resistance, the added resistance of ships due to waves, and the investigation of ship behaviour and performance in channels/canals. Recently he worked as a Co-I on a project entitled “Designing safe, green and sustainable vessels for Indonesian coastal transport and fishing operations”, funded by the British Council’s Newton Fund Institutional Links Grants. Within this project Dr Tezdogan was responsible for carrying out many tasks involving hull form optimisation of such vessels’ operation in Indonesian waters, using state-of-the-art Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) methods. Most recently, Dr Tezdogan has been involved in another Newton Fund Institutional Links project with Egypt as a Co-I. The project aims to develop a novel renewable energy powered mobile floating desalination platform for Egypt to reduce the fresh and clean water scarcity around coastal areas. Dr Tezdogan’s role in the project is to develop a CFD model to aid the engineering design calculations of the platform.

 

To date, Dr Tezdogan has published 13 papers in highly ranked journals and has presented his research at several international conferences and workshops. In addition to this, Dr Tezdogan is currently a guest editor for an Ocean Engineering Special Issue on ‘CFD Applications in Ship and Offshore Structures’. In April 2017 he was appointed as a Deputy Editor for Ocean Engineering journal. More recently, in September 2017, Dr Tezdogan was appointed to an ITTC Specialist Committee on Combined CFD/EFD Methods for a duration of three years. He is also a member of WEGEMT, RINA and the Scottish Branch of RINA. Dr Tezdogan has also been selected as a Reviewer or an Evaluator for some EU- Horizon 2020 and Newton Fund calls.
