Aljaž Škerlavaj, Dragica Jošt and Roberto Renato Stopar attended the event Academy of Mech. Engineering 2016 & 5th Int. Conference of Mech. Engineers (Ljubljana, 18th October 2016). The goal of the event is to stimulate a closer cooperation between industrial and academic spheres of mechanical engineering.

The ACCUSIM group presented the poster (in Slovene) entitled:

Napoved kavitacije v vodnih turbinah z računalniško dinamiko tekočin – rezultati projekta ACCUSIM (CFD Prediction of Cavitation in Water Turbines – results of the ACCUSIM project)

Authors: Dragica Jošt, Aljaž Škerlavaj, Mitja Morgut, Enrico Nobile

The presented poster is an overview of results obtained during the ACCUSIM project.
