In seinem abschließenden Vortrag zeigt Sebastian Schöps Möglichkeiten auf, wie Algorithmen und Berechnungen tatsächlich zum Einsatz kommen. Zum Beispiel könne mit Programmen simuliert werden, welche Schäden für die Gesundheit der Menschen entstehen, wenn sie permanent mit dem Handy am Ohr durch die Welt spazieren – ganz ohne Versuche direkt am Menschen.Tatsächlich simuliert man nicht die Schäden, sondern die Erwärmung (oder noch genauer die Energiedeposition) als “multiphysikalisches Problem”, siehe z.B. die Veröffentlichung aus 2002 von Gjonaj, Bartsch, Clemens, Schupp, Weiland. Simulation oder nicht, es gibt bisher keinen wissenschaftlichen Nachweis über Schäden. Die aktuellen Grenzwerte und viele weitere Informationen zum Thema findet man z.B. beim Informationszentrum Mobilfunk.

# New paper on isogeometric analysis of electrical machines

Computer Methods in Applied Mechanics and Engineering has accepted our paper on *Isogeometric analysis and harmonic stator–rotor coupling for simulating electric machines* with DOI 10.1016/j.cma.2018.01.047. The paper proposes Isogeometric Analysis as an alternative to classical finite elements for simulating electric machines. Through the spline-based discretisation it is possible to parametrise the circular arcs exactly, thereby avoiding any geometrical error in the representation of the air gap where a high accuracy is mandatory.

# New paper on Waveform Relaxation for Multiscale Problems

This paper proposes the application of the waveform relaxation method to the homogenization of multiscale magnetoquasistatic problems. In the monolithic heterogeneous multiscale method, the nonlinear macroscale problem is solved using the Newton–Raphson scheme. The resolution of many mesoscale problems per Gauss point allows to compute the homogenized constitutive law and its derivative by finite differences. In the proposed approach, the macroscale problem and the mesoscale problems are weakly coupled and solved separately using the finite element method on time intervals for several waveform relaxation iterations. The exchange of information between both problems is still carried out using the heterogeneous multiscale method. However, the partial derivatives can now be evaluated exactly by solving only one mesoscale problem per Gauss point. Continue reading →

# How to build GNU Octave with Qt5 on the Mac

The graphical user interface of Octave 4.0 can only be compiled with Qt4. Homebrew is dropping 4.x support and moving towards 5.x. Several Octave dependencies have already been updated (e.g. Qscintilla2, see e.g. this issue. However, the upcoming Octave 4.2 (release is scheduled for September 2016) will have full Qt5 as discussed here.

The standard installation uses the command line interface. If you need Octave with graphical user interface then this should workbrew update brew upgrade #to get the latest qscintilla brew install octave --with-gui --HEAD

**Update**: The post has been edited on Aug 20 since the new formula is now available in homebrew’s science repository.
