School of Maths open day

DSC_0069Saturday 12th September was the School of Maths open day in Leeds!

We showed experiments of waves breaking on a beach, waves impact on a wind turbine (or should we say “on a toy looking as a wind turbine”), coastal defence, and also standing waves (if you do not know what a standing wave is, then don’t miss our article about it…coming soon!). The students could also see our simulations of waves breaking on a beach and those of standing waves.

We’ll post videos of these experiments soon, and explain how important it is to have reliable mathematical models of these different situations!
