Apra Harbor is an economic and military hub located on the west coast of Guam. The current configuration of Apra Harbor does not provide adequate wave protection to
Zachary Niezgodski Master’s Student Department of Ocean and Resources Engineering University of Hawai’i at Mānoa **This defense will be held both in person (POST 723) and over Zoom** Meeting ID: 917 8926 7508 Passcode: ZachMS https://hawaii.zoom.us/j/91789267508 Since construction of the Tinian Harbor in 1945, there have only been minor repairs to the original facilities, resulting in many becoming damaged and degraded. Looking to the future, the U.S. Department of Defense, specifically the Department of the Navy, has plans to upgrade logistics capacity on Tinian for offload operations, and thus is most interested in projects that will improve the port facilities.
Kyle Pappas Master’s Student Department of Ocean and Resources Engineering University of Hawai’i at Mānoa **This defense will be held both in person (POST 723) and over Zoom** Meeting ID: 936 1681 5822 Passcode: KyleMS https://hawaii.zoom.us/j/93616815822 Three-Dimensional two-way coupled fluid structure interaction (FSI) analysis requires a complex strategy utilizing the finite element method (FEM) for large matrix computations. Two FEM solvers in LS Dyna are utilized to conduct a structural analysis of the Hawai’i Wave Surge Energy Converter (HAWSEC) for a particular wave condition case study that is directly compared with experimental results. The HAWSEC is a hollow, surface piercing,
