Yin Lu (Julie) Young is a Professor in the department of Naval Architecture and Marine Engineering. Her research focuses on the dynamic fluid-structure interaction response and stability of smart/adaptive multi-functional marine structures such as marine propulsors, turbines and control surfaces. One of her research focus is the fluid-structure interaction response and stability of marine and coastal structures. She is the current director of the Aaron Friedman Marine Hydrodynamics Laboratory. Her research has been supported by the Office of Naval Research (ONR), the Naval Surface Warfare Center (NSWC), and the National Science Foundation (NSF).
Yulin Pan is an Assistant Professor in the department of Naval Architecture & Marine Engineering. He received his Ph.D. in mechanical and ocean engineering from MIT in 2016, with a minor in mathematics. His research is primarily concerned with theoretical and computational hydrodynamics, with applications in ocean engineering and science. He has made original contributions in nonlinear ocean wave mechanics, tidal flows, propeller and bio-inspired foil propulsion. Alongside research, he is also an active writer on popular science of fluid mechanics. His active research topics include:
- Theoretical, computational and experimental investigations to understand the fundamental physics of wave turbulence
- Prediction and understanding of nonlinear ocean and coastal wave phenomenon
- Response of ships and offshore structures in wave field
- Development of computation and optimization methods for propellers and flapping foils
- Propagation of internal waves/tides at geophysical scales
Computations of Highly Nonlinear Free_Surface Flows, with Applications to Arbitrary and Complex Hull Forms
Founder and CEO of Jodi365.com
Dr. Maki works in the field of fluid mechanics, and his central focus is on developing algorithms for numerical computation of high-Reynolds number external flows that contain an air-water interface. Research interests include investigating free-surface hydrodynamics for analysis and design of high-performance naval craft and renewable-energy devices. Theoretical effort is focused on accurate description of the flow about marine vessels. Numerical research employs finite-volume and boundary element techniques to solve equations appropriate to govern the performance of ships maneuvering in waves, and energy devices and structures that operate in the ocean.
