Focus Group Workshop 2

Date: Tuesday 18th September 2018
Location: Reed Hall, University of Exeter, Exeter, UK

Description and Aim

The second CCP-WSI Focus Group Workshop will provide a forum for Wave-Structure-Interaction (WSI) discussions, with a focus on sloshing phenomena across a broad range of industrial applications. The Workshop will bring together CCP-WSI project partners with representatives from the wider WSI Community to develop a priority list of WSI challenges and inform future targeted focus group meetings. The ultimate goal is to develop a roadmap for CCP-WSI activities that is informed by industry and support future UK research funding calls to ensure a strategic approach to innovation and development of WSI software applications.


  • Develop WSI Computation and Experiment Roadmap
  • Identify WSI challenges in the context of various sloshing phenomena and applications
  • Identify themes for CCP-WSI Workshop Series Design
  • Form consortia for Research Project Proposal Development
