Summary

 

Overview

Dr Christou's research interests include: 

  • Metocean, Offshore and Coastal Engineering
  • Fully nonlinear wave-wave, wave-structure and wave-vessel interactions
  • Limiting wave and crest heights in shallow water
  • Infragravity waves interacting with coastal structures and vessels
  • Extreme and freak/rogue/abnormal waves
  • Analysis of field measurements of raw wave data
  • Wave and crest height probability distributions
  • Side-by-side and tandem offloading between vessels
  • Time-frequency analysis techniques (Wavelet & Hilbert-Huang Transforms) applied to the wave spectrum
  • Boundary Element Modelling
  • Rapidly varying wind loading of floating vessels
