Mathematical Modelling of Problems in Coastal and Offshore Engineering

September 14-18, 2020

 

Objective

Study of various aspects of coastal and offshore engineering has received immense attention over the last few decades for a good number of important applications. Protecting coastal and offshore structures from harsh wave action, installation of structures in oceans, oscillation and motion of marine structures, evaluation of wave forces, study of bottom topography, flexural gravity waves etc. are some very important and practical topics that require rigorous involvement of mathematicians, engineers and designers.  Finding appropriate solutions for problems arising in these areas is a foremost requirement. In this context, mathematics plays a very important role in converting the physical problems into appropriate forms. Methods/techniques such as special functions, Green's function, perturbation technique, integral transforms, integral equations etc., are very important and useful from the point of view of applications in various branches of science and engineering, including coastal and ocean engineering. This proposed FDP will provide some of the key mathematical techniques that are encountered in academic research. Mathematical modelling of real life problems is an important aspect of applied mathematics which caters to various areas of applied science and engineering. It is aimed, through this FDP, to throw light on the basic theory of water waves and understanding of various ocean engineering problems. Appropriate use of mathematical tools in formulating and solving different types of coastal and offshore engineering problems will be displayed. In this modern world where physical phenomena are highly nonlinear, linearizing the problems and finding solutions to various practical problems assumes significance. Idea of water wave theory and related physical conditions, various mathematical tools, formulation, methodology and solutions of various practical problems pertaining to coastal and offshore engineering will be presented in this week-long FDP. Experienced researchers will provide the necessary background for taking up different types of problems encountered in ocean.
