A CCP on Wave/Structure Interaction: CCP-WSI

Lead Research Organisation: University of Plymouth
Department Name: Sch of Engineering

Abstract

The proposal is to establish a new Collaborative Computational Project (CCP) serving the UK re-search community in the area of wave structure interactions (WSI). The new CCP-WSI will bring together computational scientists, Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) specialists and experimentalists to develop a UK national numerical wave tank (NWT) facility fully complementary to existing and future UK experimental laboratory facilities for marine, coastal offshore engineering and thus support leading-edge research in an area of high national importance. Substantial progress has been made on a number of past and current EPSRC project grants held by the lead partners in this CCP bid to develop and test the primary elements of a numerical wave tank and to carry out cutting edge wave impact experiments alongside new opensource CFD code development. We believe it is timely to focus the activities of the community on the development of opensource NWT code held within a central code repository (CCPForge). The code will be professionally software engineered and maintainable, tested and validated against measurement data provided by the partner experimentalists, whilst remaining sufficient flexibility to meet the requirements of all members of the WSI community. This model for sharing developments collaboratively within a consortium of partners within a central code repository that is sustainably managed for the future has been developed by the lead partners in related EPSRC funded research projects. The proposed CCP-WSI would extend the framework and methodology for sharing and future proofing EPSRC funded code developments in wave structure interaction to the wider community. This is proposed through a programme of community events and activities which are designed to foster the links between experimentalists and those performing computations, between industry users, academics and the interested public.

Planned Impact

Direct beneficiaries of the NWT and flow solver developments will be companies in the offshore and renewables industries that design fixed and floating structures for survivability in a wide range of wave conditions including extreme waves, including industrial partners in funded CFD projects aligned with the current proposal, and more widely. The CCP-WSI community has a large number of project partners already signed up to the project and thirty of these partners have provided letters of support. The project partners include: UK and international universities, with academic interest in CFD code development and wave structure interaction experiment; industry partners from the offshore engineering, civil engineering and offshore renewable energy sectors.

The project partners have agreed to take part in the CCP-WSI programme of events. These include a thorough programme of training courses and workshops that will provide participants with effective networking activities to allow development and sharing of ideas and processes for validation by laboratory measurements and other available data. Community participants will also be provided with the skills to develop code within the shared opensource environment; to develop new code sustainably (software engineered and quality assured); to validate and present data to accepted standards; to address new code to problems and applications in wave structure interaction. The CCP-WSI focus group and road mapping exercise will provide a framework for innovation and the development of strategic software for WSI applications. This work will be investigated further through pilot projects and industry secondments, four of the community partners from industry have offered to host researcher secondments for this purpose.

Dissemination of the research findings to potential end-users (the academic and industrial CFD research community; the renewable energy and offshore industry) will be achieved through active participation in the CCP-WSI events and through publication in leading refereed international journals and conference proceedings. These will include journals and conferences specialising in high performance computing as well as mainstream fluid mechanics journals. Dissemination and pro-motion of the CCP-WSI locally to the wider community will be achieved through school workshops and public events. A project web site and Wiki will be set up to facilitate the discussion of topics related to WSI research and to publish reports, open source codes and information on workshop events for further code developments as well as for sharing and dissemination of research outcomes.

Organisations

 
Description Since being established in 2015, the existing CCP-WSI has provided strategic leadership for the WSI community, and has been successful in generating impact in three key areas:
Strategy setting: The existing CCP-WSI network is an international group of over 115 researchers, spanning academia and industry in 5 continents. It identified challenges and priorities and has co-created a roadmap for WSI code development through industry focus group workshops with 75 attendees.
Contributions to knowledge: The existing CCP-WSI has advanced understanding of the applicability and reliability of WSI through an internationally recognised Blind Test series involving 50 participants. The Blind Test activities have been presented in dedicated sessions at 3 international conferences with 25 papers published in 3 special issue journals. Over 80 journal publications and presentations at over 20 national and international conferences have been generated from the CCP-WSI team and pilot projects with industry, outreach activities with school children and public audiences have also been delivered.
Strategic software development and support: Training has been provided to the community with 76 attendees, including training in software engineering, specific code development, code repository use and a week-long Hackathon for intense collaborative code development. The existing CCP-WSI Code Repository and clearing house provides a platform for co-creation and sharing of open source WSI code for community use, and is maintained in Github with 45 users and 300 commits. The Data repository also supports a growing database of benchmark test cases for community use and contributions
Exploitation Route Use of the CCP-WSI code Repository and training events, Hackathons. Participation in blind tests; use of new code developed in repository, use of benchmark tests and datasets.

Description A road mapping exercise has been carried out for the status of computational methods for wave structure interaction applications and a priority list of new challenges and developments needed has been developed. 1. A report has been produced, and made available online based on the discussions had at the first CCP-WSI Focus Group Workshop. As a result, a priority list of activities has been developed to inform future focus group events and WSI road-mapping exercises (https://www.ccp-wsi.ac.uk/sites/www.ccp-wsi.ac.uk/files/CCP-WSIFocusGroupWS1_Report.pdf). 2. Two blind test series have been developed and published and the wider community have been invited to take part in the tests. the first is for simulation of an offshore engineering application and the second series is for a wave energy related application. The wave energy blind test was launched during a Workshop hosted during the European Wave and Tidal Energy Conference (EWTEC) in Cork in September 2017 and will be reported at the EWTEC 2019 and the offshore engineering blind test was launched in October 2017 and will be reported during the International Symposium for Offshore and Polar Engineering (ISOPE) in Japan in June 2018. Both blind tests have generated interest from both academic and industry participants. 3. The CCP-WSI has set up a Special Interest Group in Wave Structure Interaction as part of the UK Fluids Network and held a workshop in 25th October 2017 with 26 attendees from both academia and industry present. The combined CCP-WSI and SIG-WSI mailing list now has 140 members. 4. The CCP-WSI also contributed to the national Headstart program on 3rd July 2017 providing an opportunity for A-Level students to experience how we meet the challenges of providing infrastructure for society through civil and coastal engineering. In this reporting period, the CCP-WSI website has received 2263 page views (1565 unique) from 361 unique users over 606 sessions The combined CCP-WSI and SIG-WSI mailing list has 106 members. The CCP-WSI Blind Test Series 3 was held at the ISOPE2019 conference, Honolulu, Hawaii, with 2 sessions chaired by CCP-WSI partners and 8 contributions to the conference technical program. The main report, along papers generated by individual participants, are now in review for publication in the International Journal of Offshore and Polar Engineering (IJOPE). Following the success of the CCP-WSI Blind Tests Series 1 & 3, CCP-WSI is listed as one of the main themes in the ISOPE 2020 call 4 paper. The CCP-WSI Blind Test Series 2 was held at EWTEC2019, Naples, Italy, with a dedicated CCP-WSI track, 2 sessions chaired by CCP-WSI partners, 8 contributions to the conference technical program and a dedicated side event - CCP-WSI Blind Test Series 2: Showcase Event attended by ~25 delegates. The 1st CCP-WSI Hackathon (incl. a CCP-WSI Training event - Introduction to CCP-WSI Code Developments) took place in collaboration with Queen's University Belfast and supported by the UK Fluids Network. The event was attended by 16 international early career researchers (selected via competitive application) and had invited contributions from 3 world-leading experts. The Hackathon established new collaborations, increased community engagement and contributions to the CCP-WSI Code Repository
