Ir. Reza Karimi

Ir. Mohammad Reza Karimi obtained his MSc degree in Offshore Engineering with distinction at Delft University of Technology (TU Delft), the Netherlands in 2011. He obtained his BSc in civil engineering at the University of Tabriz, Iran in 2003. From 2004 to 2009, he worked at Rayab Consulting Engineers in Tehran, Iran. During this period, Reza was a project engineer and senior engineer, and was responsible for feasibility studies and detailed design of pumping stations, reservoirs, and water and waste water pipelines. Since March 2011, he is a PhD candidate at both the TU Delft in the Netherlands and École normale supérieure de Cachan in France. He is also Hydrodynamics Engineer at the liquid motion team at Gaztransport&Technigaz, France.

Reza’s research interests include studying breaking wave impacts on the structures in general and sloshing phenomenon inside the LNG containment systems and scaling biases from model tests to full-scale in particular. The available tools for this study include a range of analytical models as well as sophisticated numerical models. A wide variety of sloshing model tests at different scales will be used to validate these models.
