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 is performed in a physical wave flume, while the numerical modelling is performed in a virtual wave flume. The course has a duration of 5 days, with 6-8 hours of training per day, by using the LABIMA wave flume WCF1 and the DualSPHysics Smoothed Particle Hydrodynamics (SPH) software package. The first two days include lectures and practice on laboratory tests on selected small-scale models. After the physical modelling session, lectures and practice with SPH are given.
