Recent highlights

Uncertainty quantification in aeroelastic wind turbine models (WindTRUE)

WindTRUE is an RVO-sponsored project within TKI Wind op Zee aimed at calibrating aeroelastic BEM models used for wind turbine design. We will use the DanAERO measurement data (IEA Task 29) to perform the calibration. This is a joint project with ECN.TNO, DNV GL and Suzlon.

Uncertainty reduction in offshore wind farms (EUROS)

EUROS is an STW project aimed at quantifying and reducing uncertainties in offshore wind farms, in order to reduce conservatism in design, optimize the power output, reduce maintenance, and better understand loading on the turbines.
Joint work with TU Delft, TU Eindhoven, Wageningen University, several research institutes and industrial partners.


Sloshing of LNG in tankers (SLING)

SLING is an STW project aimed at understanding sloshing in LNG tankers, especially impact loads, and optimizing design.
Joint work with TU Delft, TU Eindhoven, UT Twente, University of Groningen, Marin and industrial partners.

Multiphase flow in pipelines

This is a joint project between Shell Global Solutions (Amsterdam) and CWI on developing the next generation of multiphase flow simulators.
