FlexNARA (Fluid-flexible structure iNterAction ReseArch) team is established and led by Dr Narakorn Srinil at the School of Engineering, Newcastle University. FlexNARA aims to address fundamental and multidisciplinary research in the areas of ‘Fluid-Flexible Structure Interactions‘ by developing cost-efficient reduced-order models and software tools which can be applied to Offshore Oil & Gas and Renewable Energy industry for predicting the effects of ocean current flow, wave, wind & ice loads on offshore flexible structures. cropped-IMG_1217-2.jpgOur goal is to bridge several gaps in our understanding and transfer the key theoretical-practical knowledge between these two industry sectors which are of national importance for the UK economy and internationally recognised for their interdisciplinary approaches and centre for excellence. Our research covers offshore, subsea & ocean engineering applications.
