The projects developed by the Maritime Engineering Laboratory (LIM / UPC) use:

  • Own developed numerical models and adapted versions of the main codes from the international community
  • Field measurements, both with advanced commercial equipment and own development or using sophisticated equipment developed by other European research groups
  • Large scale physical modeling using the LIM / UPC basin and wave channels of different sizes
  • Hybrid approaches that combine the best of both technologies in order to get the best answer to the theoretical, design and construction questions
  • Combined approaches in which, because of the special difficulty or uncertainty in the problem being addressed, it is advisable to combine numerical or hydraulic models with field measurements

Funding is provided by European, national, regional and private funds
