Long, Wu

PhD Student

Long Wu was born Feb, 25, 1988 in China. He obtained his bachelor and master degrees in Xi'an Jiaotong University from 2006 to 2013. His master research topic is: "Rotor dynamic analysis of welded rotor produced by DongFang Turbine company".

Long Wu is currently a PhD student in in the group of Structural Optimization and Mechanics (SOM) under the supervision of Prof. Fred van Keulen from TU delft and Dr. Paolo Tiso from ETH Zurich. His PhD project is: "Model order reduction methods for complicated structure with geometric nonlinearities"

From Oct. 2017 to Dec. 2017, he worked as a scientific assistant in ETH Zurich for the joint project "State estimation of geometrically non-linear 5MW/61.5m wind turbine blade reference model using reduced order models" with Prof. Eleni Chatzi and Dr. Tiso.
