ACRI-IN Research & Development

ACRI-IN specializes in the design and project management of coastal structures, and in scientific studies on fluid mechanics:

  • digital simulation;
  • software development;
  • maritime and harbor structure design and sizing;
  • performing 2D tests programs on small mock-ups (wave flume);
  • experimental hydrodynamics studies in the flume in "fluid stream" mode.

Our R&D activities are based on defining and developing original algorithms required for research on new technical designs, and the development of the associated digital prototypes. These prototypes, once validated, can be used in our currents studies, essential to managing infrastructure in coastal environments. ACRI-IN also develops skills in the field of fluid mechanics with specific industrial studies involving complex phenomena, which often requires submitting fundamental analytical equations and developing specific algorithms and tools for the problems at hand.

The very targeted topics covered by ACRI-IN require specific R&D and significant computing power to model complex flows. CFD is also used to characterize fluid/structure interaction still poorly defined (maritime structures, bridges, etc.).

Marine Engineering
ACRI-IN's business is to combine R&D with numerical modeling, physical modeling, civil engineering and port engineering, coastal and river management and marine and harbor project management, and project management support. And do this based on the expertise, tools, organization and teams with different backgrounds and experience.
