Prof. Zhi Zong, China
School of Shipbuilding Engineering, Dalian University of Technology
Prof. Zong received his PhD in 1995 from Hiroshima University, Japan in the field of shipbuilding engineering. He then joined Institute of High Performance Computation, Singapore as senior and principle research engineer working in the field of underwater explosion and computational mechanics. In 2004 he joined Dalian University of Technology, China as professor. He once acted as dean, School of Shipbuilding Engineering, and Vice Director, State Ley Lab for Structural Analysis of Industrial Equipment. He served editorial boards of 10 over international and local journals. He authored over 340 papers, 190 among which are indexed by SCI. He authored 7 monographs, 3 among which are published by Elsevier, CRC and Lambert Academic. Prof. Zong has been active in the research fields of fluid mechanics, computational mechanics and ocean engineering. He discovered splash resistance of trimaran ships, and new forms of solitary waves. He developed variable topological Boundary Element Method for simulating jet formed after bubble collapse, which is widely applied in underwater explosion. He also refined SPH and Discrete Vortex Method to obtain better simulations of water wave evolution, ship motions in waves, slamming, water-entry, vortex-induced-vibration. He received first and second prizes of Ministry of Education in Science and Technology, prizes from Ocean Engineering Consultation Association.
