The training school was organised by Dr. Alejandro Crespo and Prof. M.G Gesteira from the University of Vigo, Spain.

The agenda included the topics:

  • Numerical hydrodynamic modelling for WECs

  • The Smoothed Particle Hydrodynamics method

  • The DualSPHysics code

  • Applications in coastal engineering

  • Practical session I: Dam-break, Regular waves

  • Coupling with Chrono and MoorDyn

  • Your own experience with SPH

  • Practical session II: Point absorber, Moored device

  • Practical session III: OWSC, Pelamis


  • Prof. Aleksander Grm University of Ljubljana, Slovenia

  • Prof. Moncho Gómez Gesteira University of Vigo, Spain

  • Dr. Alejandro Crespo University of Vigo, Spain

  • Dr. José M. Domínguez University of Vigo, Spain

  • Dr. Corrado Altomare Universitat Politecnica de Catalunya, Spain

The training school took place on the 22th and 23rd of January at Campus de Ourense, Universidade de Vigo, Spain.

WECANet offered a grant of (500 EUR/person) for 25 persons. 

The activity was co-sponsored by CIM-Uvigo and Campus Auga.
