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 combination from a systems-biologically view and the biomechanics to an integrative description of the human body, e. g., with respect to medical technology and crash testsclassical descriptive biology
- The development of an intelligent cyber infrastructure for more efficient numerical algorithms and sophisticated data-analysis technique, e. g. with respect to high-speed networks, storage systems or sensor grids
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:
A Polyhedral Approximation Framework for Convex and Robust Distributed Optimization
M. Bürger, G. Notarstefano, F. Allgöwer
A Conservative and Convergent Scheme for Undercompressive Shock Waves
C. Chalons, P.Engel, C. Rohde
A Low-Order Approximation for Viscous-Capillary Phase Transiton Dynamics
P. Engel, A. Viorel, C. Rohde
