Methods, models and simulations of hydrodynamic and aerodynamic problems

 June 16 is the date for the first international webinar on Methods, models and simulations of hydrodynamic and aerodynamic problems. A joint arrangement between SSPA and Chalmers.

The Department of Mechanics and Maritime Sciences (M2) at Chalmers University of Technology has together with SSPA established a strategic collaboration with knowledge exchange and research on CFD (computational fluid dynamics), EFD  (experimental fluid dynamics) and FSI (fluid structure interaction). 
Through this strategic collaboration between CFD and EFD, Chalmers M2 and SSPA will create an important base within FSI within ​ hydro-dynamics and aerodynamics through testing, method development and Simulated flow structures in the aft of a shipdevelopment of new, novel numerical codes.        ​                                  
Collaboration between the researchers and the methods that are 
developed ​are applied to areas such as marine renewable energy (wave 
energy,​ floating wind power, tidal power), sailing (sail racing), wind-assisted propulsion on commercial vessels, and propulsors in water and in air.

The webinar is arranged jointly by Chalmers University of Technology and SSPA. The purpose is to present the initiative to strategic collaboration for the wide community by short presentations of a selection of ongoing projects.

"Our hope is that the webinar will attract and interest new partners and reserchers to join us in ongoing projects, to start new projects togehter with us, or learn from our recent findings."
