The kick-off meeting of the project MATHEO (Smart Mathematics for Offshore Wind / Matemáticas Inteligentes para Eólica Offshore) took place last Friday at the BCAM Headquarters. The project, funded by the Basque Government within the framework of the ELKARTEK programme, will deal with the development of virtual sensors for the modelling of the seabed and its interaction with foundations using Smoothed Particle Hydrodynamics SPH approaches, as well as “hybrid” methods for the modelling of nonlinear phenomena occurring at the splash zone of support structures for offshore wind and mixed materials, and Deep Learning techniques for operation and smart re-design of components for these platforms.
The project is coordinated by TECNALIA and it involves researchers from BCAM and three departments at the University of the Basque Country: Fluid Mechanics, Geodynamics and Applied mathematics, statistics and operations research. This consortium will engage with the Basque offshore wind supply chain to maximise the impact of the project: 10 companies and 2 sectorial clusters have shown interest so far in the project results.
