Abstract:
The Applied Mechanics unit (MEMA) of the Université Catholique de Louvain studies the theoretical prediction of the behaviour of solids and fluids using mathematical models and computer simulation techniques. Also, research is conducted regarding fluid mechanics, solid mechanics, simulation of industrial processes and numerical methods, as well as algorithms for scientific computations.

Within the marine field, the group performs modelling of ocean circulations, sea level variations and ice dynamics by means of various models (e.g. SLIM and CART). The SLIM-model is inter alia applied on the Scheldt river - estuary - sea continuum
