Fluid – Structure interaction analysis

Numerical simulations were produced to analyze the disturbances induced by the presence of obstacles in the motion field and to estimate the thrust exerted by the impact of the fluid on the structures. The models used are:

  • 2d models for shallow waters and finite volumes;
  • 3D Eulerian models;
  • 3D SPH models.

The models were validated by comparison with experimental data.

Test vs wave impact simulations
Impact of a dam-break wave against an obstacle: a) experimental test in the laboratory; b) 3D simulation with SPH model; c) 2D simulation with shallow water model at finite volumes.
