The focus of my current research is to extend, simulate and validate a model of vortex shedding past three-dimensional riser pipes using a Fourier-spectral element and fully 3D spectral element method. Test and apply closure models using spectral vanishing viscosity for high Reynolds number simulations. Couple in the time domain the flow modelling techniques with a structural dynamics solver based on geometrically-nonlinear anisotropic beam elements.
