The use of particle methods in industrial and biophysical modelling applications

Date:      Monday, 24 June 2024
Time:     3pm – 4pm
Venue:   NTU School of Biological Sciences Classroom 3 (SBS-01N-23)

Particle methods are a class of numerical models that are Lagrangian (solved moving with the flow) and meshless (without grids or meshes being used for the formulation of the equations). These methods can well predict particle and fluid flow and solid deformation including fracture and plastic deformation and are well suited to complex multi-material, multiphysics problems found in leading edge industrial and biophysical problems. The numerical methods will be introduced and examples in each area will be used to demonstrate how these particle methods can solve such classes of problems. Finally, opportunities for direct prediction of biofilm growth and evolution will be discussed.
