ME EET Seminar: Modeling and Simulation of Multiphysical Processes in Particulate Media

Speaker(s): 
Date: 
December 16, 2009 - 12:00pm
Location: 
90-3122

Ideally, in an attempt to reduce laboratory costs, one would like to make predictions of complex solid and fluid particulate material behavior by numerical simulations, with the primary goal being to minimize time-consuming trial and error experiments. A central objective of this presentation is to provide basic models and efficient numerical solution strategies for the direct simulation of complex particulate media that can be achieved within a relatively standard computing environment. Key corresponding laboratory experiments are also discussed. The topics to be touched upon are: Electromagnetic Composites, Computational Bio-electromagnetics, Environmental Degradation of Composite Materials, Structural Fabric, Complex Particulate Flows and Generalizations to Modeling and Design of Collective Behavior.
