Background and activities
Interests and engagements
I am currently head of department of Department of Marine Technology.
I am director of the Rolls-Royce University Technology Centre (UTC) "Performance in a Seaway", see http://www.ntnu.edu/imt/rolls_royce for more information.
I am one of two members of the standing committee of Symposium of Marine Propulsors
I am engaged in the planning of the new marine technology research center in Trondheim - www.oceanspacecentre.no/
Other topics of interest are:
- Model test techniques
- Resistance and propulsion
- Seakeeping of ships, including propulsion in waves
- Performance of high speed marine vehichles, especially air cushion catamaran
I am lecturing the following courses:
- TMR 4217 Hydrodynamics of high speed marine vehicles Spring-term Msc-course covering all aspects of hydrodynamic performance of high speed marine vehicles.
- TMR7 Experimental methods in marine hydrodynamics - module in the final year of Msc, included in TMR4300 and TMR4525.
- PhD course MR8306 Hydrodynamics of marine structures 2
- PhD course MR8308 Advanced experimental methods in marine hydrodynamics
