THE SYROCO LAB INNOVATION ACCELERATOR
The Syroco Lab runs and supports innovation projects to create, design and build engineering systems, with a special focus on the fields of maritime transportation and energy.
Covering multiphysics domains, Syroco teams possess advanced knowledge in a broad spectrum of technologies
Syroco develops and operates an Innovation Platform that combines all the ingredients needed to drive and execute projects.
Syroco’s Moonshot Challenges attract the best talents, creating a unique work environment for innovation.
SCIENCE & TECHNOLOGY
Through extensive scientific and technological expertise, the Syroco Lab delivers projects combining engineering, modelling and experimentation.
CONCEPT & INNOVATION DESIGN
The Syroco Lab implements a thorough methodology for an exploratory phase that sets the direction and ensures selection of the best path and best concept.
INNOVATION PROJECT EXECUTION
Beyond science and technology, the Syroco Lab drives the structural and operational aspects of the project: planning, team, financing, IP, etc.
Syroco’s top level engineers, architects and simulation specialists combine advanced knowledge in multiple domains and use the most powerful tools on the market for simulation.
Fluid Mechanics & CFD
Design and simulations involving the mechanics of fluids (liquids, gases, and plasmas) and the forces on them.
Addressed by numerical methods such as Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD).
Study of the behavior of a structure subjected to dynamic loading through its interaction with fluids.
Use of Finite Element Analysis (FEA) and Fluid Structure Interaction (FSI) modelling techniques.
Complex simulations such as wave pattern simulation and prediction, or velocity prediction of multibody systems.
Formation of non-linear wave fields, creation of advanced Velocity Prediction Programs (VPP).
Production, storage and consumption, especially in contexts where multiple energy sources are available and their depletion and renewal must be optimized to combine long-term and short-term efficiency.
IoT & Sensors
Connected objects and sensors built into systems (or added afterwards).
Collection of data to provide operator guidance, make automated decisions, and analyze performance in retrospect.
Model creation and enrichment for CFD, FEA and FSI.
Development of systems for operation or energy management, collection and analysis of external data, etc.
THE LAB PLATFORM
The Syroco Lab does not only comprise a team and expertise. It is also a work environment and an innovation platform, led and supported by an agile team working on ambitious pioneering projects, such as the World Sailing Speed Record.
A STIMULATING ENVIRONMENT
With a mission to invent new approaches and identify applications that will generate sustainable operating opportunities and a positive impact on the environment, the Syroco Lab offers a unique work context to engineering teams to mix ideas, cultures and expertise for creative efficiency.
It is also an attractive, modern and innovative working space, located right in the heart of a vibrant city: Marseille.
All projects running through the Syroco Lab benefit from its industrial process for efficient and timely delivery and are supported by expertise in engineering fields, in innovation project management and execution, and in customisation and use of tools and technologies.
Innovation is supported by the use of an advanced technology platform, made of the most powerful design and simulation tools on the market, and using supercomputing facilities located in several university labs across the world for fast simulation runs.
