Scientific collaboration across the Atlantic


3 members of our team went to the University of Rhode Island

From February 4 to 8, Rui Duarte, Jean-François Filipot and Audrey Varing went to the Department of Ocean Engineering at the University of Rhode Island (USA).
The objective: to use the FNPF-BEM (Fully Nonlinear Potential Flow - Boundary Element Method) numerical model developed by Stephan Grilli to simulate breaking waves with high accuracy. As an international reference in this field, the latter made himself available throughout the week to exchange on theoretical and methodological aspects as well as on practical applications.
This high-level scientific collaboration is perfectly in line with the theme of improving the characterization of the surge and its effect on ORE systems of the DIME and CARAVELE collaborative R&D projects.
