SPOTLIGHT TALK

Warsaw Doctoral School in Natural and Biomedical Sciences and the Institute of Physics PAS cordially invites you to a SPOTLIGHT TALK

 “Computation of Deformable Interfaces in Two-Phase Flows”

given by Professor Gustavo Rabello dos Anjos, COPPE, Federal University of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

 

on February 21, 2024 at 10:30, at the IF PAN Auditorium, 45 min + question time

 

Invitation available here.

 

Abstract:
The accurate representation of deformable interfaces in two-phase flows poses significant challenges in computational fluid dynamics (CFD). This presentation delves into the computational methodology for simulating such phenomena using the Arbitrary Lagrangian Eulerian (ALE) description coupled with the Finite Element Method (FEM). ALE provides a framework for tracking moving boundaries, while FEM offers a robust numerical technique for solving the governing equations over these evolving domains. We discuss the theoretical underpinnings of ALE and FEM and their integration to model the dynamic behavior of deformable interfaces. The presentation explores the numerical algorithms involved in handling interface motion and surface tension effects. Additionally, practical considerations such as mesh generation, time integration schemes, and convergence strategies are addressed. Case studies highlighting the application of ALE-FEM in various engineering scenarios involving
multiphase flows with complex geometries will be presented to demonstrate the efficacy and versatility of the proposed computational framework. The insights gained from this research have profound implications in industry.

About the speaker:
Prof. Gustavo Rabello dos Anjos received his degree in mechanical engineering from Rio de Janeiro’s State University (UERJ), in 2007 he obtained a master’s degree in metallurgical and materials engineering from the Federal University of Rio de Janeiro (COPPE/UFRJ). In 2012 he received a PhD from the École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL) in Switzerland, with funding
from the Swiss National Science Foundation at the renowned Heat and Mass Transfer Laboratory (LTCM), led by Prof. John R. Thome.
He has developed research in the area of two-phase flow modeling with heat and mass transfer. He was nominated for best doctoral thesis awards in mechanical engineering and best doctoral thesis at EPFL in 2012. In 2012-2013 he was postdoctoral fellow of the Department of Nuclear Engineering (NSE) at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) in the Consortium for Advanced Simulation of Light Water Reactors (CASL). In 2013 he returned to Brazil through CAPES – Sciences without Frontiers and the Young Talent Attraction Scholarship. He is currently a professor at COPPE/UFRJ in the Mechanical Engineering Department.
He was director of the Brazilian Association of Engineering and Mechanical Sciences (ABCM) from 2017 to 2021. His area of interest encompasses laminar and turbulent multiphase flows, heat and mass transfer and computational fluid dynamics.

Zapisy na wykład: phdoffice@warsaw4phd.eu

Za udział w wykładach przewidziane są 2 ECTS w ramach kursu „Advanced methods of biology”

Program wykładów:

1. Ex vivo techniques for testing neurological networks

What techniques are currently golden standard in investigating neuronal network structure and function ex vivo? In the lecture the students will get an overview about how to assess single neuron structure and function up to neuronal population activity

2. Inhibitory/excitatory networks

Current research implies that distorted balance between excitation and inhibition is playing a key role in most neurodevelopmental and neurodegenerative disorders. After 1st introducing the wealth of different classes of excitatory and inhibitory neurons and their specific network integration, during a workgroup the students will work on simple model circuits in order to understand synaptic integration in basic excitatory/inhibitory networks.

3. Animal models for neurodevelopmental disorders

Today science can design animal models for many specific mutations, disorders and research readouts. During this lecture the students will get an overview of a selection of state-of-the-art genetic approaches that allow disease as well as cell type specific neuronal manipulation in translational research.

4. Cellular correlates of mind and memory in vivo

New approaches allow the monitoring and replaying memory in living animals on cellular level. In this interactive lecture the students will learn and discuss about how to use such animal models in fundamental research on memory and in understanding neurological disorders.

5. Human brain on the chip

How to investigate complex mental disorders and treatment strategies in animal models if the genetic etiology is often hardly comparable with the individual patient. Human derived pluripotent stem cells and the so called “human brain on a chip” approaches allow new ways for investigating gene-cellular phenotype correlation and provide a testing platform for patient specific drug testing. During the interactive lecture and using example disorders the student will learn the pros and cons about 2-dimensional neuronal cultures of human iNeurons and brain organoids.

6: Student presentations

The study aims will be tested by students’ presentations and graphical abstracts. Groups of ca. 4 students will chose one recent paper (list of relevant articles will be provided) which they will present during a 15 min Powerpoint presentation. All students need to present and the presentation will be graded, including an individual grade for the performance. Every group will also produce a short graphical abstract of their paper, which will produce a grade that will be combined with the grade for the presentation.
