Dr. Manmathakrishnan P.

Assistant Professor

Alliance College of Engineering and Design

Dr. Manmathakrishnan P. holds a doctorate degree in Ocean Engineering from Indian Institute of Technology Madras (IIT-M), Chennai. Dr. Manmathakrishnan holds a masters degree in Aerospace Engineering (Aerospace Structures) and a bachelor’s degree in Aeronautical Engineering. During his Ph.D., he worked on Offshore Wind Energy over the title of “Motion control of Floating Offshore Wind Turbine using Gyrostabilizer”, in which he designed a highly efficient and cost-effective gyro-damping device for the motion reduction of floating offshore wind turbine.

Dr. Manmathakrishnan has interest in research areas of ocean renewable energy (wind-wave-tidal energy), onshore wind energy, dynamic analysis of offshore floating wind turbines, offshore model testing, experimental uncertainty analysis, fluid structure interaction, gyroscopic based motion control, vibration and control, aerospace structures and its dynamics, structural health monitoring on engineering structures.
