ESRs at Torque and OMAE 2022

Last two weeks ESRs participated to 2 main conferences: Torque and OMAE (International Conference on Ocean, Offshore & Arctic Engineering) to share their work via posters, talks and even session chairing.

On the first week of June, 8 ESRs travelled to Netherlands to participate to Torque conference 2022, in TU Delft.

6 of them presented a poster of their research, including:
-Mariana Montenegro Montero (ESR9) "Effectiveness of dynamic induction control strategies on the wake of a wind turbine"
-Wessel van der Dejil (ESR11) "Experimental study of mean and turbulent velocity fields in the wake of a twin-rotor vertical axis wind turbine"
-Victor Benifla (ESR8) "Development of a genetic algorithm code for the design of cylindrical buoyancy bodies for floating offshore substructures"

2 presented during the session "Experimental methods for FOWTs" chaired by our Coordinator, Sandrine Aubrun:
-Thomas Messmer (ESR10) presented "A six degree-of-freedom set-up for wind tunnel testing of floating wind turbines"
-Moritz Gäfe (ESR2) presented "Wind field reconstruction using nacelle-based lidar measurements for floating wind turbines"



Last week, another ESR participated to OMAE conference in Hamburg, Germany. Seung-yoon Han (ESR5) had the opportunity to present his work. Additionally he even chaired a session, it was a successful first time experience for him.

His presentation was around "Validation Study of a CFD Numerical Solver for the Oscillatory Flow Features Around Heave Plate".
He chaired the session on "Experimental methods" on the Wednesday 8th of June.
