About the Conference

The 8th International conference on HYDROELASTICITY IN MARINE TECHNOLOGY (HYEL 2018) will be held in Seoul, Korea from September 10th to September 12th, 2018. The HYEL conference was first held in Trondheim, Norway in 1994. This was followed by the second conference in the series in Fukuoka, Japan (1998), the third in Oxford, UK (2003), the fourth in Wuxi, China (2006), the fifth in Southampton, UK (2009), the sixth in Tokyo, Japan (2012) and the seventh in Split, Croatia. Hydroelasticity is concerned with phenomena involving mutual interactions between hydrodynamic, inertial and elastic forces. Significant progress has been achieved since the late seventies in reconciling conventional seakeeping and marine hydrodynamics with structural mechanics and dynamics. The increasing variety of marine structures, currently operating and proposed for development, has highlighted the importance of hydroelasticity in accurately modelling fluid-structure interaction.

The aim of this established series of conferences, which started in 1994, is to promote the development of hydroelasticity and its application in advancing the design of marine structures by providing a platform for exchange of ideas among scientists and engineers working in a range of related disciplines.

The coming HYEL 2018 conference will be hosted and organized by Seoul Nation University (SNU) and sponsored by College of Engineering (SNU), Lloyd’s Register Foundation Center at SNU, Advanced Marine Engineering Center (AMEC) and Korean Shipbuilding Companies.
