HOREL: Hydrodynamics & Ocean Renewable Laboratory @ Strathclyde

We are a young team. We are an interdisciplinary research group. We are pursuing our interests. We are doing cutting-edge researches. That is HOREL.

We work on waves, ships, WECs, FOWTs, platforms. We also work on swimmers, fishes, ducks and falling leaves. We are interested in waves generated by a rain drop. We are also interested in hydrodynamics of a floating island.

Welcome to HOREL! Welcome to join us!
