Annelie Baines is a Research Fellow within Engineering and the Physical Sciences at the University of Southampton.

Annelie Baines is a Research Fellow in the Centre of Excellence in Intelligent and Resilient Ocean Engineering, part of the Royal Academy of Engineering Chair in Emerging Technologies in Intelligent & Resilient Ocean Engineering, at the University of Southampton. She is part of the Infrastructure Group within the Department of Civil and Maritime Engineering, part of the Faculty of Engineering and Physical Sciences.

My research is focused on developing a model to monitor mooring line integrity under extreme waves events using spares data sets. The work aims to evaluate the efficacy of using limited wave data to identify potential mooring line failures by machine learning techniques. My work incorporates numerical modelling and mathematical methods with emphasis on integrating emerging technologies to improve real time decision making. My work forms part of the activities of the Royal Academy of Engineering Chair in Emerging Technologies in Intelligent & Resilient Ocean Engineering.

I graduated from the University of Manchester with a first-class MEng degree in Civil and Structural Engineering in 2015. I started a PhD at the University of Manchester after graduation and graduated in August 2020. My PhD thesis entitled “Resilience of Coastal Structures to Spray Dominated Wave Impacts: an experimental and numerical investigation” demonstrated the ability of the smoothed particle hydrodynamics (SPH) CFD method to replicate spray dominated wave impacts and it’s use in predicting the forces experienced by structures located landward of coastal defences.

Research interests

My research interests surround the concepts of resilient design and structural resilience to natural and accidental disasters from earthquakes to storm events. I am particularly interested in fluid-structure interactions and the use of new and novel approaches to predicting and monitoring the structural integrity of structures during those extreme events.
