Potential Flow

Reduced Order Models for Flow Problems

Optimization, control and design problems in aero and hydro dynamics require several evaluations of systems described by partial differential equations (PDEs) and characterized by complex geometrical features. Each realization usually entails some expensive steps:

Isogeometric Analysis - Boundary Element Method

Isogeometric analysis (IGA) is emerging as a technology bridging computer aided geometric design (CAGD), most commonly based on Non-Uniform Rational B-Splines (NURBS) surfaces, and engineering analysis.In finite element and boundary element isogeometric methods (FE-IGA and IGA-BEM), the NURBS basis functions that describe the geometry define also the approximation spaces.

Nonlinear Free-surface Flows

The use of computational tools to predict hydrodynamic performances of ships has gained a lot of popularity in recent years. Models based on potential flow theory have historically been among the most successful to assess the wave pattern around a ship hull in presence of a forward ship motion.
