WavEC Offshore Renewables is delighted to announce is organizing an online Course on CFD: CFD FOR SUSTAINABLE OCEAN SOLUTIONS: COURSE I, on February 8-11, 2021, sponsored by the University of Tokyo and the University of São Paulo.

Numerical models, High-Performance-Computing (HPC) and Artificial-Intelligence (AI) are important fields in the current Industry-4.0 revolution. This unique Course Series will deal with these topics, focusing on Maritime issues and Ocean sustainability. Within the first topic of Numerical Models, viscous-flow based Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) methods are considered.

In Course-I we introduce several CFD crucial subjects:

  • Basic equations and assumptions
  • Existing tools
  • Turbulence modelling and simulation
  • Free-surface and wave modelling
  • Grid methods and motions
  • Modern verification and validation.

In terms of applications, the focus lies on Offshore Wind Energy and related CFD best-practices gathered over the years.

The course is lectured by senior experts and highly-skilled PhDs, with solid CFD practitioner and developer backgrounds, as well as up-to-date IT skills, paramount in this digital age.

Course Agenda
All times listed are Lisbon time, GMT/UTC.

The course is divided in 4 sessions
