Personal profile

Personal Statement

Dr Batuhan Aktas is a Research Associate in the Naval Architecture, Ocean and Marine Engineering Department at the University of Strathclyde. His research interest covers various marine related subjects including ship performance monitoring, vessel energy management, propeller cavitation induced noise and propeller performance assessment, cavitation erosion and seakeeping. He has been the key researcher in several research projects in U.K.


Experimental Hydrodynamics – Strong background and active research activities in towing tank, cavitation tunnel and full scale trials, regarding to resistance and propulsion, coating hydrodynamics, laser based measurements, cavitation and hydro-acoustic test.

Computational Fluid Dynamics – Specialised in using CFD simulation to predict the performance of ship hull, propeller cavitation, hydrodynamic energy saving devices and seakeeping.

Experimental and full-scale ship powering performance monitoring, prediction and analyses

  • Powering performance prediction of ships using numerical methods as well as towing tank tests, cavitation tunnels experiments and full-scale trials.
  • Execution of full-scale noise, vibration, seakeeping and manoeuvring trials. 

On-board ship performance data monitoring, collection and analysis to investigate the effect of hull and propeller condition, cavitation and underwater radiated noise.
