We've been waiting a long time for these exciting times. Finally, the time has come. We have recruited two outstanding new PhD students to work on this prestigious project. And we're all set to go.
The project was funded last year, with an official start date of January 2022. Until now, only one MS student had begun working on the project and completed some preliminary work. But, starting now, we will delve deep into real science to create a novel reduced order modeling framework for safe maritime activities in the Arctic and Sub-Arctic regions.
Our team consists of UH-Manoa, TU-Delft (the Netherlands), and two large Alaskan fishing companies that have graciously agreed to participate in the project and share resources with us. We will keep you up to date on the latest developments.
We are planning to have our first "kick-off meeting" on June 17, 2022. Updates on the project will be posted here.
In addition, we will attend the 26th IAHR International Symposium on Ice, which will be held from June 9 to June 23, 2022 in Montreal, Canada. Grant Peel will present our first conference paper, "Investigating the dominant force distributions in ice-induced vibrations using multivariate analysis," as part of this project..
