This laboratory is devoted to the performance analysis of Wells turbines to be included in systems
OWC systems (Oscillating Water Column) for wave energy harvesting.
Modelling and simulation of flows in complex configurations; simulation of the performance of
fluid machines and energy systems.
The research activity concerns in particular:
In the area named Ex-Officine Scianatico, thanks to funding from the PrInCE project, the Politecnico di Bari University transferred the soundproof chamber inside of which two test benches housing internal combustion engines (already available).
The subsonic closed loop wind tunnel of the GAVE Lab has a 1 meter squared test section.
The MILD (Moderate or Intense Low-oxygen Dilution) combustion laboratory is one of the laboratories of the Department of Mechanics, Mathematics and Management (DMMM).
The lab is constituted by a closed-loop rig for experimental tests and studies on hydraulic pumps, turbines and PAT (Pumps As Turbines).
