The 2nd International Workshop, ‘Numerical and Experimental modelling of Wave-Structure Interaction’ boasts 16 speakers discussing a variety of topics. It is organized by IITMadras, City, UoL and UCL and runs 17 - 26 Nov.


The themed issue (part 1) on the CCP-WS Bind Test Series 2 of Proceedings of the Institution of Civil Engineers - Engineering and Computational Mechanics has been published. Look out for further Blind Test Series 2 papers in later issues as well!


We are very proud to announce that CCP-WSI has received 5 more years of funding from EPSRC! This next chapter will connect together previously separate communities in computational fluid dynamics (CFD) and computational structural mechanics (CSM).


The CCP-WSI You Tube Channel has been launched!


The next CCP-WSI industry engagement event is our third focus group workshop.


The 7th PRIMaRE Conference was attended (online) by over 210 delegates; 31 presentations and 25 posters plus 6 presentations from invited speakers and a panel debate featuring a range of leading figures from the marine renewables sector. The posters and recorded plenary sessions are now available via the PRIMaRE website.


An online webinar held to mark the end of the four year EPSRC-funded STORMLAMP research project. The event involved presentations on lighthouse research and other relevant areas from academics, heritage professionals and industry stakeholders. There were also discussions on future directions for related research. The presentations can be viewed on the UCL EPICentre youtube channel
