Hands-on course on experimental and numerical modelling of wave-structure interaction
Florence, Italy 12/07/2021-16/07/2021
The Training School aims at providing a basic introduction on experimental and numerical modelling approaches for simulating wave-structure interactions. The experimental modelling will be performed in a physical wave flume, while the numerical modelling will be performed in a virtual wave flume. The course has a duration of 5 days, with 6 hours of training per day, and it is going to be held in Florence (Italy) by using the LABIMA wave flume and the DualSPHysics Smoothed Particle Hydrodynamics (SPH) software package. The first two days will include lectures and practice on laboratory tests on selected small-scale models. After the physical modelling session, lectures and practice with SPH are planned. The last day will be dedicated to discussion between trainers and trainees and comparison between laboratory data and numerical results. The Training School is specifically designed for those interested in developing numerical and experimental modelling techniques of WECs.
