1. Zhen, Yi. Numerical Simulation of Dropped Cylindrical Objects into Water in Two Dimensions (2D).

Degree: MS, Mathematics, 2018, University of New Orleans

The dropped objects are identified as one of the top ten causes of fatalities and serious injuries in the oil and gas industry. It is of importance to understand dynamics of dropped objects under water in order to accurately predict the motion of dropped objects and protect the underwater structures and facilities from being damaged. In this thesis, we study nondimensionalization of dynamic equations of dropped cylindrical objects. Nondimensionalization helps to reduce the number of free parameters, identify the relative size of effects of parameters, and gain a deeper insight of the essential nature of dynamics of dropped cylindrical objects under water. The resulting simulations of dimensionless trajectory confirms that drop angle, trailing edge and drag coefficient have the significant effects on dynamics of trajectories and landing location of dropped cylindrical objects under water. Advisors/Committee Members: Dr. Linxiong Li, Dr. Xiaochuan Yu.

Subjects/Keywords: dropped cylindrical object; surge-heave-pitch motion; drop angle; trailing edge; nondimensionalization; Dynamical Systems; Mathematics
