Empa Topical Day: High-performance multiscale modelling IV

Date: Tuesday, May 30, 2017
Time: 09:00-16:00
Location: Empa, Dübendorf, Überlandstrasse 129

Advanced simulations at nano- to environmental scales and linking of multiple scales, including electronic structure calculations, molecular dynamics, discrete element modelling, Lattice Boltzmann methods, continuum hygro-thermo-mechanical FEM and environmental computational fluid dynamics.

Target Audience:
Scientists, PhDs and postdocs working with advanced computational models at different scales.

This series of Topical Days offers a platform to experts in high-performance multiscale modelling on the latest developments and for sharing experiences. The focus is on solving computationally demanding problems in physics, chemistry, material science and engineering, ranging from nano- to environmental scale. Another point of interest is how to couple such simulations at different scales in an efficient and accurate way.

These Topical Days particularly aim to bring together the community at Empa and to link people with different backgrounds and skills.

For this fourth Topical Day, two keynote speakers are invited to share their latest research: Prof. Marc Geers (Eindhoven University of Technology, The Netherlands) and Prof. Patrick Perré (Université Paris-Saclay, France). For the remainder of the day, several Empa scientists will present examples of their modelling work. In addition, Dr. Falk Wittel will present his recent activities at the Computational Physics for Engineering Materials group of the Institute for Building Materials of ETH Zürich. The progress regarding a center of competence at Empa is also discussed.
