The Special Semesters at RICAM focused on new mathematical and methodological challenges that appear recently in Computational Mechanics.
Novel Discretization and Solver Techniques in Mechanics
The efficient solution of large-scale direct field problems requires novel adaptive discretization and solver techniques. We organized tutorials, lectures, workshops and panel discussions for young researchers, in particular PhD students and young postdocs, on the following new computational methods with different applications to solid and fluid mechanical problems including coupled field problems (Fluid-Structure Interaction, Magneto-mechanics, Piezo-electrics), Biomechanics etc.:
A posteriori estimates and adaptivity in solid mechanics:
Organizer: Sergei Repin (Steklov Institute of Mathematics at St. Petersburg, Russia)
Co-organizer: Jan Valdman (SFB013, Austria)
Robust parallel algebraic multigrid and multilevel techniques:
Organizer: Svetozar Margenov (BAS, Bulgaria)
Co-organizer: Johannes Kraus (RICAM, Austria)
Inverse, Control, and Optimization Problems in Mechanics
