Research in fluid mechanics, coastal and maritime engineering

The main research areas of the section are fluid mechanics, hydrodynamics, and its interaction with structures and seabeds. The methods applied include theoretical, numerical, and experimental modelling and these methods are used for determining the behaviour of flows—including the impacts that they have on surrounding structures.

Examples of technical applications are the scavenging process in two-stroke diesel engines, estimation of sediment transport, coastal morphology, determination of wave loads on ships, and off shore structures.

The section is also contributing to Maritime DTU.
