The Research Areas A-F involve all core research fields of the University of Stuttgart concerning natural and engineering science as well as computer science. Additionally, an Integrative Platform of Reflexion and Evaluation (G) is installed.
Molecular and Particle Simulations serving for nano and micro simulations, and bridging scales by coupling particle dynamics with continuum mechanical approaches.
Advanced Mechanics of Multi-scale and Multi-field Problems exhibiting the basic scientific key for the description of complex problems in almost all branches of engineering simulation and design by bridging scales, coupling physics and linking domains.
Systems Analysis and Inverse Problems focusing on model validation, parameter identification and model reduction, as well as dynamical system analysis, control, aspects of autonomy, automation and hierarchical or networked structures of systems.
Numerical and Computational Mathematics guaranteeing advances towards multiscale and multi-physics numerical models including the quantification of uncertainty and a self-adaptive choice of scales and physics in order to simulate dynamic and coupled processes in complex real-world problems.
Integrated Data Management and Interactive Visualisation mastering the explosion of information in simulation technology through human-system interfaces for model setup, real-time simulation, control and interactive visualisation and through design of sensor networks for real-time control simulations.
Hybrid High-Performance Computing Systems and Simulation Software Engineering with the basic idea of harnessing the power of large-scale systems through advanced simulation software technology to solve grand challenge problems.
An Integrative Platform of Reflexion and Evaluation that contributes to the above Research Areas regarding Theory of Science, Philosophy of Technology, Sociology of Technology and Ethics.
