In addition to or independently of the model testing services, Oceanide carries out engineering studies in the maritime field on behalf of public and private clients. It is involved at each stage of a project, from preliminary studies to construction follow-up. Its specialists rely on powerful numerical tools and experience gained during model testing and on site. Their expertise covers in particular the following areas:

  • Design of port structures, breakwaters and subsea pipelines,
  • Marine hydraulics: wave and current transfer to coastal area, morphodynamics, effluent plume,
  • Hydrodynamics of structures: seakeeping, transportation, installation, mooring,
  • Port layout, navigation, dredging, underkeel clearance...
