HydroFlex co-organized the Third Francis-99 workshop taking place in Trondheim on May 28-29, 2019. Francis-99 is a series of three workshops, tightly coupled with the topics in HydroFlex work package 3 as well as the HiFrancis R&D-project jointly financed by the industry and the Research Council of Norway and executed at NTNU and EDR Medeso.
Francis-99 provides open access to complete design and measurement data of a model Francis turbine. It is an open platform for students, researchers and industry and gives the possibility of exploring and validating modelling methods and tools. The researchers can use these data and conduct state-of-the-art numerical studies by applying different tools and techniques. The main focus of the workshop was fluid structure interactions (FSI) in Francis turbines.
