Computational Reduction Strategies for CFD and Fluid-Structure Interaction problems 2015

Partners:  SISSA, Politecnico di Torino, University of Pavia and University of Brescia. Coordinator: Prof. Gianluigi Rozza

Development of computational reduction methods for the simulation, optimization and control of complex systems in CFD and coupled problems (eg Fluid-Structure Interaction Problems).

People involed at SISSA: Prof. Gianluigi Rozza, Dr Luca Heltai, Dr Francesco Ballarin, Dr Nicola Cavallini,  Mr Giuseppe Pitton, Mr Giovanni Corsi, Mr Filippo Salmoiraghi.

Underwater Blue Efficiency - UBE

The project investigates digital simulation methods for the state of exhaust emission particles, from the engine to detachment from the hull, and then tries different geometries and virtual hydro-aerodynamic appendices and, finally, define the optimal geometries for the exhaust manifold for the purposes of hydrodynamic and environmental emissions efficiency. The expected results are:
• an innovative configuration of the exhaust manifold
• high-fidelity and simplified methods for the prediction of its performance.


The project aims to develop a computational ecosystem for industrial environments in which to tackle the hydrodynamic design of the hull-propeller system. Based on high-performance computing infrastructure integrated with innovative remote viewing technologies, the ecosystem will allow instant viewing of the pre- and post-processing of large amounts of data generated by high-resolution CFD simulations. The ecosystem developed will solve the problems identified in the project OpenSHIP and its adoption by the industry will be promoted.
