Professor Chongmin Song: Successful ARC Linkage Project involvement
ARC Linkage project success involvement:
Congratulations to Professor Chongmin Song for his ARC Linkage success announced in May 2020 in a project led by Professor Robert Melchers of the University of Newcastle.
Title: Ship response under corrosion, fatigue, and complex sea-state environments.
Professor Robert Melchers; Mr Damian McGuckin; Professor Martin Renilson; Professor Chongmin Song; Dr Seref Aksu
This project will improve our understanding of the gradual deterioration of ships and maritime structures subject to metal corrosion, fatigue, and extreme sea-state conditions. Increasingly such understanding is necessary for optimal asset management decisions. These include the potential economic, personnel and other risks involved for ship owners and operators, including the Royal Australian Navy (RAN). The project will use numerical simulation. It will tackle the Fluid-Structure Interaction problem of ships in waves by integrating Finite Element structural response analysis with cutting-edge Smoothed Particle Hydrodynamics methods. The outcomes will provide new insight into remaining asset life and for exploring optimal maintenance strategies.
