In research, the institute particularly concentrates on the fields of numerical and experimental hydrodynamics as well as fluid-structure interaction. Investigations are also made in the field of ship and offshore technology. At the institute’s own laboratories, experimental tests are conducted to determine the behaviour of multi-phase fluids (sloshing, slamming, cavitation, etc.). Moreover, numerical simulations in the maritime context are carried out (wave-induced motions and loads, propulsion, manoeuvring, fluid-structure interaction, etc.).
