Background

Research interests

  • Fluid-structure interaction (FSI)
  • Multiphysics, blackbox coupling
  • Multiscale simulation
  • Time integration schemes (multirate, parallel, coupled)
  • Research software engineering, software sustainability

Student Projects

Open student projects

Topics change with my ongoing work and depend mostly on the interests and experience of the student. It is best to contact me directly if you are interested in a thesis or student project. Here is a list of topics I am interested in:

Running Student Projects

Past student projects

  • Moritz Gnisia was a student assistant. He modernized the code framework of the course "CFD Lab" and developed a CI infrastructure and auxiliary tools for the course.
  • Richard Hertrich developed a tutorial for the "replay mode" of preCICE as a student assistant.
  • Richard Hertrich developed FSI tutorials for preCICE that use FEniCS and OpenFOAM and extended the FEniCS adapter for preCICE during his bachelor thesis.
  • Richard Hertrich also worked on the Fluent adapter for preCICE during his research internship.
  • Dominik Volland developed the MATLAB bindings for preCICE during his master thesis.
  • Gilberto Lem Carrillo helped with the integration of the MATLAB bindings as a student assistant.
