Third Francis-99 workshop


MAY 29-30, 2019 - Third Francis-99 workshop is the continuation of previous two workshops. The workshop will focus on FSI analysis under steady state operating conditions. Unlike the previous two workshops, the present workshop includes additional (simplified) test case of hydrofoil that allows simplified study of FSI to understand the mechanics behind the fluid structure coupling. Check out the programme
