Master’s & Ph.D. Advising
Prof. Li mainly engages in typhoon hazards assessment, offshore wind energy development and urban wind environment research.
In the field of typhoon hazards, Prof. Li uses mesoscale numerical simulation, field flight observation and ground long-range radar observation to systematically study wind fields and extreme sea states caused by typhoons.
In the field of offshore wind energy development, a new design for a flexible multi-body floating foundation to support commercial-sized wind turbine was proposed. The dynamic response and safety of the new floating foundation under extreme sea conditions are being studied by numerical simulation and wave basin test.
In the field of urban wind environment, Prof. Li studies the air quality and wind field at pedestrian level around dense building groups in large cities by using a combination of mesoscale meteorological model and micro scale computational fluid dynamics. Combined with field observation data, the wind environment of major cities in Guangdong, Hong Kong and Macao Bay Area is analyzed.
