Over 30 experts from across Europe and Asia are meeting this week at IHCantabria, in Santander, Spain, for the Second Steering Committee Meeting of the project CABARET (Capacity Building in Asia for Resilience EducaTion). This is a project funded by the European Union to foster regional cooperation for more effective multi-hazard early warning and increased disaster resilience among coastal communities. It will support joint initiatives and sharing of good practices among Higher Education Institutes in Asia and Europe, as we as promote links between Higher…

IHCantabria releases a new IHFOAM-GUI

  In the last decade, IHCantabria has been working actively on the development of CFD tools to study the interaction of waves with marine structures. In the last five years, our efforts have been focus on the implementation of new physics on OpenFOAM® platform to increase the capability of OpenFOAM® in solving coastal engineering problems. A set of boundary conditions for wave generation and absorption, and new solvers, to simulate two-phase porous media flow which were released in 2014 to make it freely accessible to…
  IHCantabria’s plan to develop its role as a Copernicus Academy Member will be based on the current education and training activities (Master Program, PhD Program and Capacity building). The goal of the plan is to develop lectures, training sessions, traineeships as well as educational and training material to empower the next generation of researchers, scientists, and entrepreneurs with suitable skill sets to use Copernicus data and information services to their full potential. The European Commission has launched two Networks, the Copernicus Relays and the…
Andrés Manuel López Obrador, candidato a la Presidencia del Gobierno de México, realizó una visita a Cantabria, por invitación del presidente Miguel Angel Revilla.En esta visita realizó diferentes actividades entre las que destaca una visita a la universidad de Cantabria, donde participó en un breve coloquio con parte de la comunidad universitaria que ha participado o tiene interés o proyectos en México, en el que también participaron el rector, Ángel Pazos; el presidente de Cantabria, Miguel Ángel Revilla, y la vicepresidenta regional, Rosa Eva Díaz…
The project began in January 2017 and its main objective is the development of innovative Boat Landing Systems (BLS) from two different perspectives: (1) the advanced analysis of flow-structure interaction focused on the geometry optimization and (2) the use of specifically selected materials combined with coating systems for the reduction of corrosion, fatigue and biofouling over the access system, with the aim of increasing its durability. For that purpose, ACCEDE will integrate different experimental and numerical techniques for the analysis of BLS. In this framework,…
IHCantabria will co-organize together with researchers from Universidad Politécnica de Madrid and Universitat Rovira i Virgili the ASME 2018 37th International Conference on Ocean, Offshore and Arctic Engineering (OMAE2018) in Madrid, from June 17–22, 2018. OMAE2018 is the ideal forum for researchers, engineers, managers, technicians and early professionals from the scientific and industrial communities from around the world to: - meet and present advances in technology and its scientific support; - exchange ideas and experiences whilst promoting technological progress and its application in industry, and…
