Biography

Dr Lin Wang is a Lecturer in Engineering in the School of Mechanical, Aerospace and Automotive Engineering at Coventry University. Before joining Coventry University in December 2017, Dr Wang was a Research Fellow in Structural Mechanics at Cranfield University. He is a Fellow of HEA (Higher Education Academy). 

Over the past few years, Dr Wang has participated in several projects related to Offshore Renewable Energy. Working on DECC (Department of Energy & Climate Change) funded 30 kW Aero-generator project, he led the structural design, analysis and optimisation of an innovative wind turbine composite rotor subjected to complex environmental loads. He has also participated in the largest Joint Industry Project related to Offshore Wind, called SLIC (Structural Lifecycle Industry Collaboration), with the participation of 10 wind turbine operators and the support of the certification authority DNV GL. In the SLIC project, he was responsible for:1) statistical analysis to deliver fatigue testing data based on the maximum likelihood method; 2) calculation of stress concentration factors of offshore welded structures combining 3D laser scanning technology and finite element analysis. He was also involved in a Carbon Trust project aiming to evaluate the benefits of condition monitoring in offshore wind turbine foundations. In the project, he has developed a reliability assessment model for offshore structures by incorporating reliability analysis method and structural health monitoring technologies. Additionally, he participated in an international joint project, collaborating with NOTC (National Ocean Technology Centre, China) and HEU (Harbin Engineering University, China) to develop innovative wave energy converter (WEC) technology. In the project, he developed a flexible multibody dynamic model of WECs and a reliability assessment model of WECs. 

Dr Wang has authored more than 30 papers in refereed international conferences and highly-regarded journals, such as Applied Energy, Energy, Renewable Energy and Composite Structures. He also acts as a reviewer for several journals, e.g. Applied Energy, International Journal of Mechanical Sciences, Journal of Wind Engineering and Industrial Aerodynamics, Applied Ocean Research, etc.
