First results on fast high-order IGABEM

We published a first preprint at arXiv on our research on Isogeometric BEM for Superconducting Cavities (DFG SCHO 1562/3-1 and KU 1553/4-1). In cooperation with the Computational Mathematics group in Basel we discuss the usage of higher order B-splines in view of regularity requirements, convergence of the solution within the domain and multipole compression techniques.

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.
