  • Two (2) posts in any of the following subjects:
  1. Development of in-house fluid-structure-interaction analysis methods and tools (based in FEM) for the design of floating or fixed bottom marine (coastal and offshore) structures (e.g. offshore oil and gas structures, offshore wind turbines, wave energy converters, jetties, pipelines, mooring lines, cables, port structures)
  2. Development of in-house numerical tools (based in FEM and CFD) for the nonlinear analysis (involving transient dynamics and nonstationary system responses) of in-service conditions (installation, operation, maintenance and decommissioning) of flexible and rigid structures/systems for coastal and offshore engineering applications (e.g. offshore oil and gas structures, risers, pipelines, utility networks, offshore wind turbines, mooring lines, cables, port structures)
  3. Development of in-house multi-zone numerical methods and tools (based in CFD or IGA) for the analysis of marine (coastal and offshore) structures and systems. Application to a relevant structure in oil and gas technology, offshore wind turbines, wave energy converters or coastal structures with emphasis in quantification of nonlinear wave conditions and hydrodynamic loadings, and complicated physical problems οf interaction between structures and waves
  4. Development of in-house methods and tools for the study, early detection, prediction and prevention of coastal morphodynamic processes (e.g. coastal erosion, longshore drift). Application in different coasts in Cyprus
  5. Development of advanced numerical methods and tools for the design and/or operation of ports (e.g. 3D wave circulation, optimum port operation)
  6. Development of high fidelity numerical methods and tools for the natural hazard-structure-interaction response analysis of coastal and offshore structures (nonlinear excitation and nonlinear response) and marine environment. Emphasis on: (a) estimation of the dynamic response and (b) design for resilience of marine (coastal and offshore) structures and coastal environment under sea natural hazard excitations.
  7. Stochastic dynamic analysis of marine (coastal and offshore) structure for use within rare events, extreme response prediction and probing/mitigation of extreme events”
