The next SUTGEF meeting will take place on 25 May in the Department of Engineering Science in Oxford and will run in hybrid format. There will be three talks relating to the EPSRC project “Extreme Loading on FOWT under Complex Environmental Conditions”. Please sign up by Monday 23rd May.
The CCP-WSI is pleased to announce, the 3rd CCP-WSI Code Developers’ Workshop will take place on the afternoons (U.K. time) of the 28th and 29th of April 2022. The Workshop is a free to attend, online event, hosted by the University of Manchester. The focus of the Workshop is on the theory and coding of code coupling technologies, particularly in the field of multi-phase fluid-structure interaction. Registration is open!
Congratulations to CCP-WSI community members Anna Feichtner and Omar Ahmed Mahfoze for recently passing their PhD vivas!
The CCP-WSI Comparative Study 1 is being run in collaboration with the ISOPE conference (ISOPE-2022). If you would like to participate, please email your expression of interest (EoI) to both firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com and, if you would like to submit a full paper to be included in the ISOPE-2022 conference proceedings, please attach a one-page abstract with your EoI before 15th November 2021.
The Smoothed Particle Hydrodynamics Special Interest Group (SPH SIG), part of the UK Fluids Network, are organising 3 “deep-dive” lectures: the first is on the 25th August 2021; the next is in October 2021 and the third is in December 2021. All of the details, including speaker info, talk titles etc. are available on the SPH SIG website.
The next in the ongoing SPH SIG virtual seminar series will be held on the 21st of July at 14:00 – 16:30. This will feature talks from 5 researchers about cutting edge SPH research. This is free to attend but registration is required.
Advanced notice of the next CCP-WSI training event. The CCP-WSI Code Coupling Workshop will take place 13 – 14 October 2021 and will focus on creating coupled solutions using an existing open-source software library.
ICE Publishing Awards 2021: CCP-WSI members awarded the Baker Medal (for third best paper overall) for the paper “Modelling of focused wave interaction with wave energy converter models using qaleFOAM”, part of the themed issue on the CCP-WSI Blind Test Series 2.
The 3rd UCL OpenFOAM Workshop will be held from 24th to 26th February, 2021. It aims to help beginners to start using OpenFOAM for their projects, as well as to create a platform for experienced users to collaborate.
The 2nd International Workshop, ‘Numerical and Experimental modelling of Wave-Structure Interaction’ boasts 16 speakers discussing a variety of topics. It is organized by IITMadras, City, UoL and UCL and runs 17 – 26 Nov.
The themed issue (part 1) on the CCP-WS Bind Test Series 2 of Proceedings of the Institution of Civil Engineers – Engineering and Computational Mechanics has been published. Look out for further Blind Test Series 2 papers in later issues as well!
We are very proud to announce that CCP-WSI has received 5 more years of funding from EPSRC! This next chapter will connect together previously separate communities in computational fluid dynamics (CFD) and computational structural mechanics (CSM).
The 7th PRIMaRE Conference was attended (online) by over 210 delegates; 31 presentations and 25 posters plus 6 presentations from invited speakers and a panel debate featuring a range of leading figures from the marine renewables sector. The posters and recorded plenary sessions are now available via the PRIMaRE website.
An online webinar held to mark the end of the four year EPSRC-funded STORMLAMP research project. The event involved presentations on lighthouse research and other relevant areas from academics, heritage professionals and industry stakeholders. There were also discussions on future directions for related research. The presentations can be viewed on the UCL EPICentre youtube channel
