Hydrodynamics for Naval Environment

-#Experimental study and modelling of cavitating flows:
-**Implementation of original optical experimental techniques
-**Study of two-phase flows (wake, instabilities)
-**Implementation of numerical simulations associating cavitation models to turbulence models.
-**Impact of surface roughness. Machining strategies for the fabrication of propeller blades
-**Study of CAM (computer-aided manufacturing) methods integrating the optimization of machining parameters according to the functional geometric specifications of the surface
-#Fluid-structure interaction:
-**Deformable lifting bodies operating in transient motions
-**Experiments and modelling of flows around bodies in forced transient or periodic motions; application to control surfaces ( rudders, stabilizers or marine propellers in unsteady regimes)
-**Development of analysis methods specific to transient regimes: empirical mode decomposition (in collaboration with the Underwater Acoustics research group)
-**Interaction between an unstable boundary layer flow and a flexible surface: application to the prediction of the hydrodynamic self-noise of sonar antennas More...
-**Numerical and experimental study of flexible structures: application to the deformation of sails.
