Laboratory for Maritime Environmental Engineering
The Laboratory for Maritime Environmental Engineering is specifically designed for all questions of measuring and modelling at and on the sea. One focus is the multidimensional numerical fluid mechanics CFD. Parallel computer resources and all required tools for preprocessing, processing and postprocessing are available in the laboratory.
The use, application-oriented further development and validation of the CFD open source toolbox OpenFOAM®, which is used worldwide, plays an important role. This work is carried out in close cooperation with the Federal Institute for Water. We offer special courses on this topic - also in the context of further education. The technical application cases usually deal with fluid mechanics in the near field of hydraulic structures, marine structures and ships.
The Laboratory for Maritime Environmental Engineering has built up a considerable inventory of oceanographic instruments. All instruments can be used in the depths of the German Bight. Besides the determination of current velocities, underwater topography and water quality parameters, the laboratory can carry out underwater inspection work with sonar as well as underwater camera systems. A highly ocean-proof offshore service boat has been specially prepared as an equipment carrier, which can be deployed at short notice in the North Sea and Baltic Sea.
