- Multi-physics, black-box coupling
- Geometric multi-scale modeling (1D-3D, 2D-3D coupling)
- Fluid-fluid, multi-model coupling
- Fluid-structure interaction (FSI)
- Conjugate heat transfer (CHT)
- Computational fluid dynamics (CFD)
- Research software engineering, software sustainability
- Doctoral project titled "Flexible Algorithms and Software for Complex Geometric Multi-Scale Coupling" (2018 - today)
- Co-developer of preCICE, a free/open-source solver coupling library for multi-physics simulations with long history and users in several countries. As this project grows and targets users outside our research group, I am also interested in good software engineering practices, as part of the project preDOM. (2017 - today)
- Organization of the preCICE Workshop 2020
- Organizational support for KONWIHR (9/2018 - today)
- Organization of the SCCS Colloquium (1/2019 - today)
- Registered first aider / first responder for SCCS (7/2019 - today)
If you are interested in a student project (Bachelor's or Master's Thesis or anything else), please contact me directly. I am mostly working with preCICE, for which you can also see the page Student Projects with preCICE. See also the pages of my colleagues Benjamin Rüth, Frédéric Simonis, and Benjamin Uekermann, as well as the Student Projects at our chair.
Do you want to know what other students are working on in our chair? You are warmly encouraged to attend their presentations at the SCCS Colloquium! Come to get ideas, meet your potential supervisor, or to learn from the style of others for your own presentation.
Open student projects
Running student projects
- Qunsheng Huang is doing his Master's Thesis for M.Sc. CSE. A preliminary title of his thesis is "Helicopter Fluid-Structure Coupling using preCICE". This work is in collaboration with the TUM Chair of Helicopter Technology.
- Michel Takken is a student assistant for the preDOM project. He is further developing the Code_Aster adapter for preCICE and he is setting up tutorial simulation cases for preCICE.
- Konrad Eder is a student assistant for the ATHLET-preCICE project. He is assisting in the development of the ATHLET adapter for preCICE, in bringing preCICE to Windows, and in testing preCICE.
Finished student projects
- Ayman Noureldin did his Master's Thesis for M.Sc. CSE. The title of his thesis was "A Master-Slave Approach for Multi-Phase Fluid-Fluid Coupling of OpenFOAM and ATHLET". This work was in collaboration with the GRS institute in Garching.
- Dmytro Sashko was a student assistant for the preDOM project. He further developed the web-based preCICE tutorial and he worked on testing, packaging, and distributing preCICE.
- David Schneider was a student assistant for the preDOM project. He developed features of the OpenFOAM adapter for preCICE, he developed the deal-ii adapter for preCICE, and he set up tutorial simulation cases for preCICE.
