SCCER-SOE Responsibilities

He is working within the WP3.2 in the framework of the HYPERBOLE research project, granted by the European Commission (ERC/FP7-ENERGY-2013-1-Grant 608532). The project aims at improving the prediction of pressure fluctuations for the full-scale turbine at off-design operating conditions. Arthur Favrel focuses on the experimental investigation of the precessing vortex rope arising at Francis turbine off-design condition.
