Welcome to the Laboratory for Fluid-Structure Interaction (LIFE) lead by Prof. Francisco J Huera-Huarte, at Universitat Rovira i Virgili (URV), in Tarragona, Spain.
We use experimental and computational techniques in fluid and solid mechanics to study bluff body wakes and fluid-structure interations with applications to bioinspired, offshore and wind engineering with emphasis in:
  • Fluid mechanics
  • Flow-induced vibrations (FIV)
  • Fluid dynamics of swimming and flying
  • Bio-inspired design
  • Bluff body flows and vortex flows
  • Renewable energy harvesting

The groups is funded thanks to competitive National and International calls since 2006.
