EMF 2018 in Darmstadt

The 11th International Symposium on Electric and Magnetic Fields, EMF 2018, will be held in Darmstadt (Germany) from 10 to 12 April 2018. The purpose of the Symposium is to throw a bridge between recent research advances in mathematical and numerical modelling of electromagnetic fields and the growing number of industrial problems requiring such techniques. Do not miss the chance to take part, the call for papers will open soon. Abstracts should be submitted by 24 November 2017! Continue reading →

From the press release: “Ein wichtiges Etappenziel für den Ausbau des Lichtenberg-Hochleistungsrechners ist geschafft: Der Wissenschaftsrat hat während seiner Frühjahrssitzungen das TU-Vorhaben „Lichtenberg II“ für die Förderung im Bund-Länder-Programm Forschungsbauten empfohlen. Beantragt sind 15 Millionen Euro, über die die Gemeinsame Wissenschaftskonferenz von Bund und Ländern Ende Juni entscheiden wird.”

Update. Funding is granted: “Lichtenberg II für die Spitzenforschung TU erhält 15 Millionen Euro von Bund und Land für Hochleistungsrechner” Continue reading →

Winter excursion to GSI, Darmstadt

Today, computational engineering students and several colleagues from our work group of computational electromagnetics made an excursion to the GSI Helmholtzzentrum für Schwerionenforschung. We visited the ion sources, the linear accelerator, the control room and we had a look to the prototype of the Super-FRS Magnet of the FAIR project. Thanks to the GSI for the tour and the important research that you do!

Radolsav and Zeger at EPNC 2016

EPNC-2016-logo-1-2-e1455056052945Radoslav Jankoski and Zeger Bontinck will present recent works on uncertainty quantification, i.e., Uncertainty Quantification of a PMSM With Dynamic Rotor Eccentricity and Shape Optimization of its Magnets and Stochastic Modeling of an Inhomogeneous Magnetic Reluctivity Using the Karhunen-loève Expansion and the Hierarchical Matrix Technique at the Symposium on Electromagnetic Phenomena in Nonlinear Circuits (EPNC) 2016 in Helsinki.

Darmstadt is well prepared for the future…

Prognos_Darmstadt According to a recent study of Prognos Darmstadt is the city with the 9th highest potential in Germany. In a similar study of IW Consult Darmstadt was even number one. The reasons were similar, for example: many young and well educated inhabitants with background in mathematics, natural sciences or engineering. Wirtschaftswoche said “Hier profitiert Darmstadt von seiner 1877 gegründeten Technischen Universität. Hinzu kommt die Sogwirkung auf High Potentials durch drei Fraunhofer-Institute und das GSI Helmholtzzentrum für Schwerionenforschung, das gerade den Bau eines gigantischen Teilchenbeschleunigers vorbereitet.
