Yokohama National University, Yokohama, Japan
40th Georg Weinblum Memorial Lecture (2017/18)
Development of CFD Methods for Industrial Ship Flow Applications
Takanori Hino, born in 1957, holds a Master's degree in shipbuilding from Tokyo University. In 1984, he completed his PhD thesis on the subject "Study on Numerical Analysis of Nonlinear Ocean Waves", also at Tokyo University.
Takanori Hino started his career as a research engineer in marine propulsion following his dissertation at the Ship Research Institute in Tokyo – from 1996 as head of the division Highspeed Vessels. From 2001 to 2011, he held various positions at the National Research Institute in Tokyo, most recently as director of the Center for Computational Fluid Dynamics Research.
In 2011, Hino was appointed professor at Yokohama National University, where he holds the chair of Systems Design for Ocean-Space in the Faculty of Engineering. His research is mainly focusses on the fields of numerical fluid mechanics, ship hydromechanics and form optimisation.
During his scientific career, Professor Hino has been a visiting researcher at various institutions abroad, including Princeton University in the US and the International Research Center for Computational Hydrodynamics in Denmark. He is the author of numerous publications on topics such as free surface modelling, ship propulsion and optimisation as well as numerical fluid mechanics.
Between 2008 and 2011, he was secretary of the Specialist Committee on CFD in Marine Hydrodynamics at the ITTC, and chaired the committee from 2011 to 2014. Hino is a member of the Japanese Society of Naval Architects and Ocean Engineers. He held the position of Director from 2013 to 2015 and Deputy President from 2015 to 2017.
