Roderick Rainey FREng
Head of Technology (Floating Structures), Atkins (Oil and Gas)

Rod Rainey is an eminent offshore engineer with an ability to analyse complex hydro-mechanical systems, which requires a strong mathematical base allied to physical perception. He has applied this to stability of tension leg platforms and ships, wind turbines for ship propulsion, improved hydrodynamic inertia load formulations, high frequency ‘ringing’ of offshore structures, rogue wave impacts, tidal barrage and wave energy generation. He has degrees in engineering and mathematics from the University of Cambridge, and control engineering from Imperial College London. He has worked for Y-ARD and Atkins during his career.
