Master Thesis at the Institute of Hydraulic Engineering and Water Resources Management

Isabelle Schmidt completed her studies in October with her master thesis for Pacific Garage screening.  Numerical investigation of an approach for the removal of plastic particles from the pacific

The task of the thesis was about: ,,Numerical investigation of an approach for the removal of plastic particles from the pacific“. Isabelle considered the currents inside the platform and got first results. Based on her results the Institute of Hydraulic Engineering and Water Resources Management continues the research of the functionality of the platform.

All the best to Isabelle for her graduation!
