DFG Funds Research on Isogeometric BEM at TU Darmstadt

I am proud to announce that DFG grants funding for our research on the simulation of superconducting cavities with isogeometric boundary elements “IGA-BEM”. The project is supervised by Stefan Kurz (KU 1553/4-1) and myself (SCHO1562/3-1). The aim of the joint project is the highly accurate simulation of resonant frequencies of superconducting cavities in particle accelerators. Since the simulation accuracy heavily depends on the geometry representation it will be described and discretized with Non-Uniform Rational B-Splines, which allow an exact description of the computer aided design.
