Career Summary

Biography

My undergraduate and PhD degrees were at Otago University. I worked at Otago for two years and for three years at Auckland University as a post doctoral fellow. In 1999 I was appointed as a lecturer at Massey University's Albany campus. I then moved to Auckland University in 2003. I worked there until taking up the position at The University of Newcastle in 2012.

Research Expertise
I am an expert in wave scattering in both the time and frequency domain. Much of my research has been connected with wave water scattering, especially with hydroelasticity, but I have also worked in photonics and more general wave scattering theory. I am especially interested in the connection between the frequency and time domain problems and the phenomena of near trapping. However, the main focus of my research has been on understanding the process of wave scattering in the Marginal Ice Zone. This is an extremely complicated wave scattering problem which is very poorly understood. I have been responsible for some of the most important models developed in the last twenty years.

Teaching Expertise
I have taught a wide range of mathematics courses, but I specialize in teaching differential equations. I have a very broad knowledge of this field from both my research (which is connected with the use of differential equations to model wave phenomena) and from the courses I have taught. I like to combine modelling, analytic and numerical solutions in my teaching so that students see the way in which all three are connected.

Administrative Expertise
I am currently the Program Convener for BMath and a member of the CARMA executive..

Collaborations
I am collaborating with Prof Ross McPhedran at the University of Sydney, Luke Bennetts at University of Adelaide, Colm Fitzgerald at Oxford University.

2015Meylan MH, Bennetts LG, Cavaliere C, Alberello A, Toffoli A, 'Experimental and theoretical models of wave-induced flexure of a sea ice floe', Physics of Fluids, 27 (2015)

An experimental model is used to validate a theoretical model of a sea ice floe's flexural motion, induced by ocean waves. A thin plastic plate models the ice floe in the experiments. Rigid and compliant plastics and two different thicknesses are tested. Regular incident waves are used, with wavelengths less than, equal to, and greater than the floe length, and steepnesses ranging from gently sloping to storm-like. Results show the models agree well, despite the overwash phenomenon occurring in the experiments, which the theoretical model neglects.

2015Doble MJ, De Carolis G, Meylan MH, Bidlot J-R, Wadhams P, 'Relating wave attenuation to pancake ice thickness, using field measurements and model results', Geophysical Research Letters, (2015)

Wave attenuation coefficients (a, m-1) were calculated from in situ data transmitted by custom wave buoys deployed into the advancing pancake ice region of the Weddell Sea. Data cover a 12day period as the buoy array was first compressed and then dilated under the influence of a passing low-pressure system. Attenuation was found to vary over more than 2 orders of magnitude and to be far higher than that observed in broken-floe marginal ice zones. A clear linear relation between a and ice thickness was demonstrated, using ice thickness from a novel dynamic/thermodynamic model. A simple expression for a in terms of wave period and ice thickness was derived, for application in research and operational models. The variation of a was further investigated with a two-layer viscous model, and a linear relation was found between eddy viscosity in the sub-ice boundary layer and ice thickness.

The density of states, which measures the density of the spectrum, is evaluated for a platonic crystal (periodically structured elastic plate) using the Green's function approach. Results are presented not only for the standard density of states, but also for the mutual, local, and spectral density of states. These other state functions provide a pathway to the standard density of states and characterize the radiative and other properties of the crystal. This is the first known examination of the density of states for a platonic crystal and extends the existing Green's function approach for photonic crystals to thin, elastic plates. As a motivating example the theory is applied to the problem of a square array of pins embedded in a thin plate. The density of states functions for an empty lattice (a uniform plate) are also presented in order to give a clear illustration of the steps in the derivation. Careful numerical calculations are given which reveal the complex behavior of the crystal, including intervals of suppressed density of states. These results are compared to calculations for a finite crystal with an interior source, and the behaviors of the finite and infinite systems are shown to be connected through the density of states.

In this paper, we compute the band structure for a pinned elastic plate which is constrained at the points of a hexagonal lattice. Existing work on platonic crystals has been restricted to square and rectangular array geometries, and an examination of other Bravais lattice geometries for platonic crystals has yet to be made. Such hexagonal arrays have been shown to support Dirac cone dispersion at the center of the Brillouin zone for phononic crystals, and we demonstrate the existence of double Dirac cones for the first time in platonic crystals here. In the vicinity of these Dirac points, there are several complex dispersion phenomena, including a multiple interference phenomenon between families of waves which correspond to free space transport and those which interact with the pins. An examination of the reflectance and transmittance for large finite gratings arranged in a hexagonal fashion is also made, where these effects can be visualized using plane waves. This is achieved via a recurrence relation approach for the reflection and transmission matrices, which is computationally stable compared to transfer matrix approaches.© 2013 Taylor and Francis.

A corrected version of the multipole solution for a thin plate perforated in a doubly periodic fashion is presented. It is assumed that free-edge boundary conditions are imposed at the edge of each cylindrical inclusion. The solution procedure given here exploits a well-known property of Bessel functions to obtain the solution directly, in contrast to the existing incorrect derivation. A series of band diagrams and an updated table of values are given for the resulting system (correcting known publications on the topic), which shows a spectral band at low frequency for the free-edge problem. This is in contrast to clamped-edge boundary conditions for the same biharmonic plate problem, which features a low-frequency band gap. The numerical solution procedure outlined here is also simplified relative to earlier publications, and exploits the spectral properties of complex-valued matrices to determine the band structure of the structured plate.

We present a higher-order method to calculate the motion of a floating, shallow draft, elastic plate of arbitrary geometry subject to linear wave forcing at a single frequency. The solution is found by coupling the boundary element and finite element methods. We use the same nodes, basis functions, and maintain the same order in both methods. Two equations are derived that relate the displacement of the plate and the velocity potential under the plate. The first equation is derived from the elastic plate equation. The discrete version of this equation is very similar to the standard finite element method elastic plate equation except that the potential of the water is included in a consistent manner. The second equation is based on the boundary integral equation which relates the displacement of the plate and the potential using the free-surface Green function. The discrete version of this equation, which is consistent with the order of the basis functions, includes a Green matrix that is analogous to the mass and stiffness matrices of the classical finite element method for an elastic plate. The two equations are solved simultaneously to give the potential and displacement. Results are presented showing that the method agrees with previous results and its performance is analysed. © 2004 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.

A fully three-dimensional model for the motion and bending of a solitary ice floe due to wave forcing is presented. This allows the scattering and wave-induced force for a realistic ice floe to be calculated. These are required to model wave scattering and wave-induced ice drift in the marginal ice zone. The ice floe is modeled as a thin plate, and its motion is expanded in the thin plate modes of vibration. The modes are substituted into the integral equation for the water. This gives a linear system of equations for the coefficients used to expand the ice floe motion. Solutions are presented for the ice floe displacement, the scattered energy, and the time-averaged force for a range of ice floe geometries and wave periods. It is found that ice floe stiffness is the most important factor in determining ice floe motion, scattering, and force. However, above a critical value of stiffness the floe geometry also influences the scattering and force.
