Our Research

The Marine Structures Design Lab conducts research in the marine design domain, with an emphasis on structural response and stochastic methods. The group members have performed research for many different organizations, including several multi-year Office of Naval Research funded efforts, two Ship Structure Committee projects as well as work for NAVSEA. Our current research is focused in three main areas:

  • Lightweight Structures
  • Lifecycle Structural Support
  • Advanced Design Optimization
