Wajiha Rehman is a PGR at the School of Mathematics, University of Leeds. She is a Marie Sklodowska-Curie Early Stage Researcher (ESR) for the European Union European Industrial Doctorate (EID) program; Eagre/Aegir: High-seas wave-impact modelling. Wajiha holds a bachelor's degree in Mechanical Engineering from Pakistan. Later, she completed the dual master's degree as a part of the ERASMUS program known as EMSHIP+. The first master's M1 was “Master in Mechanical Engineering focused on Ship Design” from the University of Liege, Belgium and the second master's M2 was “Master in Marine Technology” from Ecole Centrale de Nantes, France. She did her master's thesis related to the Fluid-Structure Analysis of composite marine propellers by performing an internship at Bureau Veritas, Marine and Offshore Department (M&O) Nantes, France.
As an ESR, Wajiha will be working to develop a numerical model to perform the wave-structure interaction analysis of water waves and dynamic offshore wind-turbine mast. The research project will be completed in collaboration with MARIN Academy, The Netherlands.
``Eagre/Aegir: High-Seas Wave-Impact Modelling'' is a European Industry Doctorate (EID) project that is funded by the H2020 Marie Skłodowska-Curie programme. The PhD project is a sub-project of ``Eagre/Aegir: High-Seas Wave-Impact Modelling'' and it focuses on two sub-projects, i.e., the development of the mathematical and numerical model of a numerical wavetank that generates water waves by using a waveflap wavemaker and the development of a numerical model to simulate water wave impact on a hyperelastic turbine mast.
The purpose of an EID project is to increase the collaboration between industry and academia for better training of the researchers, therefore, this project is done by the collaboration of the University of Leeds and the Maritime Research Institute Netherlands (MARIN). The first 18 months of the research project will be at the University of Leeds under the supervision of Prof. Onno Bokhove and the second 18 months will be at Maritime Research Institute (MARIN) Academy BV, The Netherlands, under the supervision of Dr Tim Bunnik with Sanne van Essen and Dr Bulent Duz. The mathematical model and codes will be developed at the University of Leeds while the validation through experimental testing of the model will be done at MARIN Academy BV.
