**Abstract**

The numerical simulation of applications in aeroelasticity and free surface flows share the following features: the need for the geometrical representation of complex domains, mesh manipulation and mesh interpolation. These problems are dealt with in the field of geometric modeling. On the other hand a common aspect to most fluid mechanics studies is that numerical and experimental research are usually dissociated from each other. A better integration between those two areas is c1early perceived as an important objective in the academic community and, perhaps, it can be used as an indication of the maturity of a given research group. Therefore the main purpose of the present project is to bring together specialists from these different areas. The research in geometric modeling will be the foundation for the applications in aeroelasticity, computational rheology and free surface flows. The experimental work will provide results for the validation of the mathematical models and numerical techniques in aeroelasticity. (AU)
