Head of Discipline

Prof. Leen’s main interest is in the development of computational solid mechanics solutions related to the ‘Materials for Energy’ theme. Examples are the: (i) development and analysis of novel floating concepts for offshore wind energy and (ii) development of structural integrity methods for use of composite materials in seawater environments.

Academic Staff

Dr. Quinlan’s research interests are in fluid dynamics; with applications to the characterisation, analysis and design of renewable and conventional energy conversion systems. His group uses particle image velocimetry and computational fluid dynamics, and are developing novel computational approaches which are particularly suited to marine applications.

Dr. Mingming Tong is a full time Lecture in Mechanical Engineering at the College of Engineering and Informatics of NUI Galway, and he is also the associate member of Brunel Centre for Advanced Solidification Technology (BCAST) in London.
