Modelling and numerical simulation

Modelling and numerical simulation

Internship Description

There are several modelling and simulation projects available. Topics of the projects are 1. Modelling biogas fermentation, 2. Multiscale modelling of permeation through human skin, 3. HPC based simulation of signal processing in neurons, 4. Numerical methods for free surfaces, 5. Simulation of energy storage. The models we used are based on first principles from Physics, typically resulting in systems of PDE. They all are solved using the same software tool UG4, providing advanced numerical methods like parallel adaptive multigrid solvers.


Setting up, discretising and models on the basis of first principles. We expect the students to have a solid knowledge in analysis, numerics and programming.​
