In house code development

Research in coupled air-water-structure simulation for offshore application.

Finite element and Isogeometric analysis for fluids, using stabilised formulations.

This stabilisation doubles as a turbulence model, although it can also be perceived as Quasi direct numerical simulation, where the numerical formulation is such that it is forgiving in the the under resolved cases.

The air-water interface is handled using the level-set approach while the structural motions are accommodated using mesh motion. This results in a mixed Eulerian/Lagrangian formulation.
