Focus Group Workshop 3

Date: Friday 4th September 2020
Location: Online (details to be confirmed)

Description and Aim

The third CCP-WSI Focus Group Workshop marks the start of a new era for the CCP-WSI – CCP-WSI+. The scope of the CCP-WSI has been expanded to cover, and combine, state-of-the-art practises from both the computational fluid mechanics and computational structural mechanics communities. To kick-off this more holistic approach to Wave-Structure-Interaction (WSI) modelling, the CCP-WSI Focus Group Workshop 3 sets the scene for the CCP-WSI+ and focuses on the core theme of multi-physics coupling in WSI. The Workshop provides an industry context to these challenges and a forum for WSI discussions that are relevant to a broad range of applications that include fluid-structure-interaction challenges (with a specific focus on free-surface flows, i.e. ‘waves’). 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 and inform future funding calls.


  • Introduce and kick-off the new CCP-WSI+
  • Develop WSI Computation and Experiment Roadmap
  • Identify WSI challenges in the context of multi-physics coupling, i.e. combined hydrodynamics and structural mechanics
  • Identify themes for CCP-WSI Workshop Series Design
  • Form consortia for Research Project Proposal Development
