Background and activities
Weizhi Wang has the educational background of Naval Architecture and Ocean Engineering in CTH Sweden and HEU China. He is currently a PhD candidate in NTNU working with the numerical modeling of large-scale wave propagation in the Norwegian coast and fjords. He performs numerical investigation of the wave conditions for the E39 coastal highway ferry-free fjord-crossing project. He is one of the developers for the open-source wave model REEF3D. He co-develops different wave models and trives on the coupling among the models, for example, CFD, shallow water model and potential flow model. The goal is to develop a fast and accurate integrated model for large-scale wave phenomena in near the complex Norwegian coastal area. His research interests include:
- Wave modelling
- Coastal engineering
- Ocean space and climate
- Oceanic renewable energy
