 Room 1.15 (SLT – small lecture theatre), Queen’s Building, University of Bristol, Bristol, UK (& online)

Description and Aim

The SPH-SIG/CCP-WSI Joint Meeting 1 brings together the SPH UK Fluids Network Special Interest Group and the CCP-WSI and HEC-WSI communities to discuss the latest advances in using meshless methods for fluid structure interaction problems. Hosted by the University of Bristol, the event will include introductions and information on the research communities, technical talks from leading experts in the field, and time for networking and broader group discussions towards the end of the day.


Registration for this event is now closed.
