Alexandre Simos is invited by the Research Laboratory in Hydrodynamics, Energetics and Atmospheric Environment (LHEEA) form 16 to 22 october.

Associate Professor at the Department of Naval Architecture and Ocean Engineering (USP) of the University of Sao Paulo, he was head of the department from 2014 to 2018. He works mainly on marine hydrodynamics, especially on offshore and ocean systems. He teaches regularly and coordinates R&D projects in cooperation with industry and government institutions.

He will give a talk about 2 subjects at Centrale Nantes on Thursday 20 October at 2pm in Lecture theater E entitled:
 
  • "Slow motions of offshore floating units induced by second-order wave effects" : This talk will provide an overview of the research done by our group on the slow-drifts experienced by floating units in waves. We will start by revisiting problems related to resonant vertical motions of deep-draft oil&gas units, addressed in the late 1990's, and then move on to more recent topics, such as the slow-drifts of floating wind turbines.
  • "An overview of the Brazilian offshore wind scenario and the main research topics conducted at USP" : Brazil is on its way to initiating what will potentially be major wind power production along parts of its coasts. This talk will firstly address the current Brazilian offshore wind scenario (wind potential, regulations, industrial plans, etc.). In the second part, the main research topics on onshore/offshore wind carried at USP Polytechnic School will be presented and opportunities for cooperation in R,D&I will be discussed.
