MSc. (DI) Anna Feichtner
Anna Feichtner is a PhD student within the Renewable Energy Group at the Penryn Campus of the College of Engineering, Mathematics and Physical Sciences of the University of Exeter.
Her undergraduate qualification is a BSc and MSc (Dipl.-Ing. / DI) in Civil and Environmental Engineering at the University of Innsbruck, Austria – graduation in 2017.
The objective of her PhD project is to develop CFD simulations (with OpenFOAM) of floating offshore wind turbines in order to study their response to wave forces.
The focus lies on the floating platform and its wave-structure-interaction and the outcome will inform the stability and load prediction in operational and extreme conditions.
Anna’ supervisors are Prof. Gavin Tabor, Prof Lars Johanning and Dr. Philipp R. Thies.
