Special Interest Group “Wave-structure interaction”

A Special Interest Group in “Wave-Structure Interaction” has been approved for funding by the UK Fluids Network (UKFN). The aim of the SIG in Wave-structure Interaction (SIG-WSI) is to bring together and widen the community of researchers and developers around wave structure interaction (WSI). It will join the CCP-WSI Network with the shared objective of providing a focus for numerical modelling, software development and laboratory experimentation in applications relating to offshore renewable energy, coastal and ocean engineering, including building a national Numerical Wave Tank (NWT) facility. The SIG will join the CCP-WSI programme of workshops and training courses extending the reach of these activities. The SIG will run for a 3 year period and the kick-off meeting will be held on 25th October 2017 in Manchester, UK. Further up-dates will follow via the combined CCP-WSI and SIG-WSI Community Mailing List.
