From Isolated Numerical Approaches to an Integrative Systems Science
What is SimTech?
In the 21st century's society, simulation technology has become completely indispensable, it dominates all areas of life. The cluster Simulation Technology, approved with the certificate “excellent” by the experts of the German Research Foundation (DFG), is embedded in the Stuttgart Research Centre for Simulation Technology. Together, it represents a massive platform for further developing scientific methods and techniques in all branches of modelling and simulation techniques.
- The transfer of an empirically dominated material description towards a simulation-based design of new materials with tailored high-end properties
- A completely virtualised development of prototypes and factories
- The use of complex and integrative methods in environmental engineering, e. g., with respect to the handling of greenhouse gases or the global climate change
- The transfer from the classical descriptive biology towards a systems-biologically dominated view on technical and natural systems
- The summing-up of isolated solutions in the field of biomechanics to an integrative description of the human body, e. g., with respect to medical technology and crash tests
Projects in the focus
With the SimTech projects we want to investigate exciting, recent and scientifically relevant phenomena. Therefore, we are, inter alia, concentrating on the following problems:
Geological storage of CO2: global sensitivity analysis and risk assessment using arbitrary polynomial chaos expansion

A hybrid stochastic Galerkin method for uncertainty quantification to a conservation law modelling a clarier-thickener unit
R. Bürger, I. Kröker, C. Rohde
Hierarchical Clustering of Dynamical Networks Using a Saddle-Point Analysis
