Professor Lance Manuel and his former PhD student and post-doctoral fellow, Hieu Nguyen (PhD 2012), received a Best Paper Award in the Ocean Renewable Energy Symposium at the ASME OMAE (Offshore Mechanics and Arctic Engineering) Conference.  The paper was co-authored with three Italian researchers from Florence and Rome and represented collaborative research by the participants. 

The team was recognized for the paper, “Irregular Nonlinear Wave Simulation and Associated Loads on Offshore Wind Turbines,” which describes simulation of extreme loads on a shallow-water offshore wind turbine.

The award was presented at the OMAE-2014 Conference held June 9-12 in San Francisco, California.
