  • Guy Houlsby Guy Houlsby

    Marine engineering equipment and vessels

    Guy Houlsby is Professor of Civil Engineering at Oxford University. He has two main areas of research: In geotechnical engineering his interest is principally in the design of offshore foundations, although in the past he has also worked on in-situ testing, reinforced soil and tunnelling. He also works on the applications of numerical methods (both finite element analysis and other methods) to solution of geotechnical problems, and on the development of constitutive models for soils. Much of his recent research has been applied to the area of marine renewable energy. He has carried out research on foundations for offshore wind turbines, and is currently working on the development of a novel tidal turbine for power generation. He also has a substantial group working on the understanding of tidal resources at every scal from single devices through to tidal basins. His current research students are Trevon Joseph, Andrea Schnabl, William Beuckelaers, Jonathan White, Iona Richards, Ahmad Firdaus, Tulio Moreira, Toby Balaam.

  • Petros A. Ioannou Petros A. Ioannou

    Marine engineering equipment and vessels

    Dr. El Naggar has made significant contributions to the design of deep foundations, design of foundations for machines (e.g. power plants, manufacturing equipment, etc.) and analysis of response of structures to environmental loads. He has an ongoing interest in analysis and design of deep (pile) foundations. His contributions include a number of innovative solutions for foundation problems. He developed an approach to predict the bearing capacity of piles using the Statnamic © load test. He also developed an innovative technique to improve the response of piles installed in marine clays using electrical treatment. Furthermore, he developed an efficient analytical approach to evaluate the stiffness characteristics of the pile foundations under dynamic loads that is incorporated in a design code to be used by bridge engineers. Dr. El Naggar and his co-workers investigated the performance characteristics of tapered piles, and developed design tools for their implementation in foundation design. Dr. El Naggar has undertaken definitive work to characterize the response of structures to wind, earthquake and wave loading. The rational analysis methods developed consider the interactive effects of the supporting soil medium on the structures response. The findings from this work were published in national and international journals and are being incorporated in national design guidelines and are used by practicing engineers in their designs. Dr. El Naggar has a national and international reputation in the area of design of machine foundations as well. He served as consultant in a variety of challenging projects both in Canada and abroad including high profile projects such as the foundation of the Canadian Light Source (Synchrotron), power plants in Canada and the USA, MRI units, paper mills, etc. He has also taught thirty short courses on ìDesign of Machine Foundationsî to practicing engineers in Canadian and American engineering firms. He is a co-author for the computer program DYNA5 that is used worldwide for the design of machine foundations. Dr. El Naggarís current research includes static and dynamic response of piles; lateral response of pile groups under extreme loading; seismic local site effects and soil structure interaction and seismic microzonation of Toronto/Mississauga; seismic response of buildings with basements; and behaviour of tapered piles (including centrifuge and lab testing); seismic response of helical piles; FRP Composite piles; performance evaluation of micro piles-raft systems.

  • Mahmoud Haddara Mahmoud Haddara

    Marine engineering equipment and vessels

    Martinelli completed his undergraduate studies in aeronautical engineering at the Politecnico di Milano and earned his Ph.D. at Princeton in 1987. He remained at Princeton as a Research Staff member to continue the development of computational fluid dynamics methods in collaboration with his former Ph.D. adviser Antony Jameson, at a time in which the MAE department was one of the worldwide leading centers in the field. He joined the faculty in 1994, and has been teaching courses in Aerodynamics, Applied and Computational Mathematics, and Design. Martinelli’s research is primarily motivated by the desire of improving the aerodynamics efficiency of airplanes, cars, ships, and energy conversion devices, and is concerned with a variety of fundamental problems at the intersection of aerodynam-ics, computational science and engineering design. He contributed to the development of fast multigrid methods for the solution of viscous conservation laws in both compressible and incompressible regime. He also made noted con-tributions to the development of efficient shape design optimization methods based on the Reynolds Averaged Navier-Stokes equations, which have been widely used in Industry for the aerodynamic design of contemporary transonic airplanes.

    New agriculture and agricultural equipment

    My research projects cover many different aspects of tree-fruit production, including: 1) sustainable soil and nutrient management practices, 2) increasing the efficiency of apple orchard production systems (i.e., fresh market apples grown in high-density orchards with highly productive, size-controlling rootstocks), 3) developing high-value crop production systems (e.g., sweet cherries grown under protective structures), 4) increasing the production of value-added fruit-based products (e.g., hard cider), and 5) improving crop-load management in apple trees through the application of exogenous chemicals (primarily plant growth regulators) and the use of weather-based models to predict ideal fruit thinning application timing. The common thread among these research projects is the development of fruit production systems that facilitate the long-term economic and environmental viability of commercial tree-fruit growers.
