Modeling in Engineering using Innovative Numerical Methods for Solids and Fluids

Invited Lecturers

Olivier Allix (École normale supérieure Paris-Saclay, France)

6 lectures on: non-intrusive computational techniques and application to multi-scale analysis of complex visco-plastic structures and composites, numerical acceleration techniques, mixed approaches and homogenization like approaches, plates and junction and wave propagation.

Laura De Lorenzis (TU Braunschweig, Germany)

6 lectures on: phase-field modeling in applied sciences and engineering, phase-field modeling of brittle fracture, monolithic and staggered solution schemes, combination with structural models for plates and shells, phase-field modeling of ductile fracture and of fracture in porous media, open issues.

Alexander Düster (Hamburg University of Technology, Germany)

5 lectures on: fictitious domain methods for problems of solid mechanics, high-order methods, numerical integration techniques for broken cells, local enrichment, applications in solid mechanics: numerical homogenization, wave propagation, nonlinear problems.

Antonio Huerta (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, Spain)

6 lectures on: Discontinuous Galerkin (DG) methods. After an introduction on DG for first-order PDEs and a historical overview on DG methods for diffusion problems, the lectures will cover the Hybridizable Discontinuous Galerkin method (concept, accuracy and superconvergence) and its application in convection-diffusion, compressible and incompressible Navier-Stokes.

Hrvoje Jasak (University of Zagreb, Zagreb, Croatia)

6 lectures on: Practical Computational Fluid Dynamics with the Finite Volume Method. Lectures shall include the basics of the second-order accurate Finite Volume discretisation with polyhedral cell support. Attention shall be given to numerical handling of the computational mesh, linear solver technology and solution of coupled equation sets. The course shall be accompanied with examples from industrial CFD.

Peter Wriggers (Leibniz Universität Hannover, Germany)

6 lectures on: discrete element methods including contact laws for normal and tangential contact, coupling with finite element methods using standard solid and shell elements where surface and solid coupling is applied, treatment of particle fluid interactions, use of high performance computing for discrete elements, applications to different engineering and biomechanical problems.
