Yong Bai

PhD, professor Zhejiang University

Prof. Bai received a doctorate from Hiroshima University in Japan and engaged in postdoctoral work in the field of ocean engineering in Technical University of Denmark, Norwegian University of Science and Technology and University of California at Berkeley. He has published over 100 research papers, 9 English academic treatises and 8 Chinese books on Ocean Engineering. Bai served as a professor at University of Stavanger, Harbin Engineering University, Zhejiang University and Southern University of Science and Technology. He worked in Det Norske Veritas, American Bureau of Shipping, JP KENNY Company in Norway, Shell E & P Company and MCS in the United States. He has presided over dozens of large projects in the field ship structures, submarine pipelines & risers, design analysis and risk assessment of offshore platforms. Bai put forward the design concept of buckling and ultimate load carrying capacity of deepwater submarine pipelines. He improved the design methods, analytical tools and design standards of marine pipelines and reached the international leading level. He significantly improved the design methodology and criteria for subsea pipelines and risers such as ultimate strength design, use of risk and reliability methods.
