AICES Fellow Kai Schüller contributes to REXUS rocket experiment project VIPER
The DLR REXUS rocket project VIPER aims atinvestigating melting processes under low gravity and pressure conditions. The project recently passed its preliminary design review at DLR Oberpfaffenhofen, and is now scheduled for launch from SSC, Esrange Space Center in northern Sweden in early 2018.
AICES Fellow Malte Döntgen Has Passed His Doctoral Exam
Malte started as AICES fellow in 2013 and received his doctoral degree in February 2017.
His research on Reaction Models from Reactive Molecular Dynamics and High-Level Kinetics Predictions, has been advised by Prof. Dr. Leonhard.
Malte now works as postdoctoral fellow at LTT of RWTH Aachen.
Junior Research Group Leader Julia Kowalski Inducted into " Junges Kolleg“
Julia Kowalski has been accepted as a young scholar into the „ Junges Kolleg“ of the North Rhine-Westphalian Academy of Sciences, Humanities and the Arts. Members participate in the activities of the Academy and receive an annual stipend of 10,000 Euros, and they have the opportunity to discuss their projects in interdisciplinary working groups. Julia is a member of the Faculty of Georesources and Materials Engineering and Junior Research Group Leader at AICES since 2015. Together with her group she works on developing mathematical and numerical methods for applications in the geosciences.
Paper by Markus Höhnerbach, Ahmed Ismail and Paolo Bientinesi replicated in SSC
The paper "The Vectorization of the Tersoff Multi-Body Potential: An Exercise in Performance Portability", by M. Höhnerbach, A. Ismail, and P. Bientinesi, has been selected to be replicated in the Student Cluster Competition (SCC) at SC17, the leading conference for High Performance Computing, Networking, Storage and Analysis.
The paper will receive the Results Replicated badge from ACM.
DFG Project Approved for Associated Junior Research Group Leaders Dr.-Ing. Stefanie Elgeti
The project "Automated design and optimisation of dynamic mixing and shear elements for single-screw extruder” will be conducted together with Prof. Christian Hopmann, the head of the Institute for Plastic Processing in Aachen. The next three years of research will be devoted to developing a simulation-based methodology that allows a deterministic design of single-screw extruders. This will significantly advance the current state of the art, where designer mostly rely on experience and trial-and-error procedures.
