C. Keijdener (Chris)

Chris Keijdener graduated from the Faculty of Civil Engineering and Geosciences of Delft University of Technology in 2012. In 2013 he started his PhD research on the effect of hydrodynamics on the interaction between ice and floating structures in the Norwegian Centre for Research Based Innovation SAMCoT (www.ntnu.edu/samcot), based in Trondheim. This work is nearly completed and he will defend his PhD on the 6th of December 2019. He is currently employed as University Teacher at the Offshore Engineering section of the Hydraulic Engineering Department. He coordinates the educational activities of the Offshore & Dredging Engineering master and teaches the following two courses:   

  • OE44090 Introduction to Computational Dynamics of Offshore Structures
  • OE44105 Marine Pipelines 

His research interests include: 

  • Ice-floater interaction
  • Potential theory & Hydrodynamics
  • Offshore engineering
