On July 5, 2022, Otto Eivind Neshamar received his Ph.D. in engineering at the University of Aberdeen in Scotland.
The title of the PhD thesis is “Hydrodynamics of oscillatory flow over an array of cylinders”.
The ultimate goal of the project is to be there to educate nature-based coastal protection – “nature-based coastal protection”. This is about the fact that natural ecosystems found in coastal areas, for example reeds, sea grass or coral reefs, can be used to protect beaches.
The project included scientific experiments at the “fluid mechanics” laboratory in Aberdeen, where measurements were made of water movements and forces in a single vessel.
The project was funded by the University of Aberdeen. The guides were Dr. Dominic van der A and Tom O’Donoghue, Professor.
The panel consisted of Vladimir Nikora, professor at the University of Aberdeen, and Chris Blenkinsopp, dr. at the University of Bath.
Otto has been working as a postdoc researcher at the University of Dundee in Scotland since February.
The Ph.D.-dissertation can take a long time
