Place: O.C. Zienkiewicz Conference Room, C1 Building, UPC Campus Nord, Barcelona


Problems in science and engineering solved using the Finite Element Method can produce large systems of equations that demand considerable computer power and/or a long time to be computed. One of the techniques to overcome this barrier are the so-called Reduced Order Models (ROM), which allow to obtain accurate representations of the solution of a large model, incurring a fraction of the computational burden.

In this talk, I will be presenting the basic theory of the methods we are working with, which are POD (Proper Orthogonal Decomposition) for the reduction stage, and the Empirical Cubature Method for the hyper reduction stage; as well as how these techniques have been incorporated into Kratos Multiphysics.
