Francis-99 is a series of three workshops, which provides an open access of the complete design and data of a model Francis turbine. It provides an open platform to the hydropower researchers and it gives the possibility to explore their capabilities and enhance their skills.

The  scope of the third workshop is fluid structure analysis under steady state operating conditions. More specifically, parameters such as study of mode-shape, nodal-diameter, deformation, fatigue loading, estimation of fatigue life, individual/combined natural frequencies, hydrodynamic damping, harmonic response, etc. will be investigated.
