Dick K.P. Yue is the Philip J. Solondz Professor of Engineering, and Professor of Mechanical and Ocean Engineering at MIT. Professor Yue is a long-time MIT'er, having received all his degrees (S.B., S.M. and Sc.D./Ph.D.) from MIT. He has been a faculty member in Ocean Engineering (part of the Department of Mechanical Engineering) since 1983. He is active in research and teaching in marine fluid mechanics and ocean engineering. He supervises a 20-member research group, directing the Vortical Flow Research Laboratory and co-directing the Ocean Engineering Towing Tank facility. He has made fundamental contributions in theoretical and computational hydrodynamics, ocean and coastal wave dynamics, nonlinear wave mechanics, and large-amplitude motions and loads on ships and offshore structures; including seminal developments of theoretical and numerical methods for these problems. Professor Yue also helped advance the understanding of hydrodynamics of fish swimming, ushering in a new era of applying biomimetic principles to man-made marine designs. Professor Yue has made major contributions to the study of free-surface vortical and turbulent flows, the complex mechanisms at the air-sea interface and their effects on interfacial processes. He has authored/co-authored more than two hundred papers and a now classic two-volume textbook on the hydromechanics of ocean waves.
