Ocean Engineering Lab.
- The ocean engineering laboratory (OElab) was established in 1986 by Prof. Sun Hong Kwon. He has conducted researches on the fluid dynamic aspects of ocean engineering. Stochastic analysis, application of wavelet transformation to ocean engineering, development of wave monitoring system, and experiments in the circulating water channel were carried out under his supervision. In 1998, Prof. Han Suk Choi joined the lab with vast industry experience. His interests are design and installation analysis of offshore pipelines and other structures. Prof. Jang have researched with a special focus on (nonliear) inverse problems arising from ocean engineering field. Nonliear wave-wave interactions and optimization procedures also are subjects of his interest.
Ship Structural Mechanics Lab.
- The Ship Structural Mechanics Laboratory (SSML) develops methods useful for strength analysis and structural design of marine structures. The methods developed should be helpful for achievement of high performance of the structural system. The Laboratory has the facilities for numerical and experimental studies. This includes mechanical testing equipment (static and dynamic loading machines) and high-speed computers with non-linear finite element programmes.
Ship Motion &Maneuvering Lab..
- The main research topics of SMML(Ship Motion &Maneuvering Laboratory) are assessment of ship motion and evaluation of maneuverability of ship. The Seakeeping Quality - the theoretical and empirical analysis of ship moving in waves, and Maneuverability - Course-Keeping Quality, Turning Ability, Yaw checking ability, Crash Astern Ability.
Ship Resistance &Propulsion Lab.
- The primary research activities of the laboratory students and faculty include the study of ship resistance prediction, propeller design and high-speed marine vehicle design. Traditionally, the hydrodynamic design of marine structures has relied heavily on the use of towing tank. However, the emergence in recent years of advanced computational methods, more efficient, inexpensive way is possible.
Ship Noise and Vibration Free Lab.
- The Ship Noise and Vibration(S.N.V) Free Lab develops passive and active control methods and computer-aided engineering tools useful for low-noise and vibration design of marine structures. Expecially, the Laboratory has developed vibration and noise analysis software system based on advanced analysis theory and information technology, which can be used for the easy modelling, precise prediction and cost-effective simulation required in the field of low-noise and vibration design of marine structures. The Laboratory also has the facilities for numerical and experimental studies including ship vibration and noise measurement and analysis system.
