Next week I will participate at the workshop WORM 2013. It’s main scope is the prediction of the constitutive properties of microstructured materials using numerical methods is associated with a high demand in CPU time and memory. During the past two decades, order-reduction techniques have been given increased attention by both academia and industry. These methods can help to significantly reduce not only the computational time, but also the storage requirements (RAM and disk space) which are essential features when it comes to mechanics of materials. The workshop deals with this particular subdomain of model order-reduction for application to the mechanics of materials. (source: www.itm.kit.edu)

DFG Scientific Network “CoSiMOR”

CoSiMOR Network LogoOn monday there will be the first meeting of the scientific network Scale bridging simulation methods based on order-reduction and co-simulation (“CoSiMOR”), coordinator is Felix Fritzen. The network is funded by the German Research Foundation (DFG) in the framework Wissenschaftliche Netzwerke. The meeting takes place in Darmstadt at the Graduate School of Computational Engineering, Room R214, Dolivostraße 15, 64293 Darmstadt, Germany.
