May 23, 2019 8:30 - 16:00 , Empa, Dübendorf, AKADEMIE
Advanced simulations at nano- to environmental scales and linking of multiple scales, including electronic structure calculations, molecular dynamics, discrete element modeling, Lattice Boltzmann methods, continuum hygro-thermo-mechanical FEM and environmental computational fluid dynamics.
Scientists, PhDs, postdocs and engineers working with advanced computational models at different scales.
This series of Topical Days offers a platform to experts in high-performance multiscale modeling on the latest developments and for sharing experiences. The focus is on solving computationally demanding problems in physics, chemistry, material science and engineering, ranging from nano- to environmental scale. Another point of interest is how to couple such simulations at different scales in an efficient and accurate way. These Topical Days particularly aim to bring together the community at Empa and beyond in order to link people with different backgrounds and skills.
For this sixth Topical Day, two keynote speakers are invited to share their latest research: Prof. Gabriel Wittum (KAUST, Saudi-Arabia & University of Frankfurt, Germany) and Prof. Stefano Vanni (University of Fribourg, Switzerland). For the remainder of the day, several Empa scientists will present examples of their modeling work at different scales. The progress regarding the available commercial modeling software at Empa (COMSOL Multiphysics, ANSYS) as well as the computational hardware at Empa and other clusters is also discussed.
For more details on the program please see the event flyer.
The event is sponsored by Empa and free of charge for the participants, but registration is required and lunch is not included.
Registration deadline is 17 May 2019.
