Strategic research project on Chalmers on hydro- and aerodynamics
Research Project , 2019 – 2023

Chalmers Department of Mechanics and Maritime Sciences (M2) has together with SSPA established a strategic collaboration with knowledge exchange and research on CFD (computational fluid dynamics), EFD (experimental fluid dynamics) and FSI (fluid structure interaction). Chalmers M2 is particularly strong in CFD and structural analysis, and SSPA with its experimental infrastructure on EFD. Through this strategic collaboration between CFD and EFD, Chalmers M2 and SSPA will create an important base within FSI within hydrodynamics and aerodynamics through testing, method development and development of new, novel numerical codes. Chalmers M2 has wind tunnels that can be used for aerodynamic testing and SSPA's facilities can be used for hydrodynamic testing. Collaboration between the researchers and the methods that are developed are applied to areas such as marine renewable energy (wave energy, floating wind power, tidal power), sailing (race sailing) and wind-assisted propulsion on commercial vessels.
