Dr Javad Mehr is a Lecturer at the National Centre of Maritime Engineering and Hydrodynamics of the Australian Maritime College, an institute of University of Tasmania.

Biography

Dr Javad Mehr completed his bachelor of engineering degree in Naval Architecture & Marine Engineering at Persian Gulf University in Iran in 2003. Then he commenced his master degree in Naval Architecture & Marine Engineering at Sharif University of Technology in 2003. He completed his master degree in 2005 and then commenced his full-time position as head of Naval Architecture in Procurement Department of ISOICO (Iran Shipbuilding and Offshore Industries Complex Co.).

Gaining a lot of experiences during his collaboration with marine industries for many years, Dr Mehr decided to continue his education after he was awarded an IPRS scholarship to conduct his PhD at School of Engineering-University of Tasmania (UTAS) in 2012.

In 2012 Dr Mehr commenced his PhD at UTAS in collaboration with INCAT and Australian Maritime College (AMC) on motion control system of high-speed catamarans through experimental investigation of a hydroelastic segmented catamaran model. This project was funded by the Australian Research Council (ARC) and INCAT to investigate the influence of Ride Control System (RCS) on the motion and load response of a 112 m INCAT high-speed wave-piercer catamaran through towing tank testing in head seas.

Today Dr Mehr is a lecturer at AMC pursuing his research interests with INCAT on structural loads and motions response.
