Coffee Talk - "Robust techniques for parallel non-matching grid mapping", by Philipp Bucher (Technical University of Munich)

Tuesday, December 13th, 2016. Time: 15h.

Place: O.C. Zienkiewicz, C1 building, Campus Nord UPC



Mapping algorithms allow us to exchange data between domains when the interfaces between them are nonconforming. This is essential in many coupled problems, fluid-structure interaction being the most prominent example. The talk will introduce the theory behind different mapping algorithms and discuss their implementation within the Mapping Application in Kratos Multiphysics. There will be a special focus in the robustness of the algorithms, as well as in their MPI-parallel implementation.


Philipp Bucher is a master student of Computational Mechanics at the Technical University Munich (TUM). He is working on his master thesis at CIMNE in implementing algorithms for parallel non-matching grid mapping in Kratos.
