Urban wind simulation in VirtualCity@Chalmers

  Analysis of wind flow is an important factor in assessing the conditions for pedestrian comfort in a city. The geometries of buildings, in particular tall buildings, and their relative positions have a tremendous effect on the wind experienced by pedestrians on the ground level. Wind is a highly complex phenomenon and the analysis requires the use of sophisticated mathematical modeling and high-performance computing. As a first demonstration of the capabilities of the VirtualCity@Chalmers platform, we have analyzed the wind conditions on the Chalmers Lindholmen campus by a … [Read More...]

German-Portuguese Project in Computational Finance

As part of the activities of the ECMI Special Interest Group on computational finance and energy markets a bilateral German-Portuguese Project FRACTAL – FRActional models and CompuTationAL Finance was granted in January 2019. It  will run for two years (01/2019 – 12/2020) and is jointly coordinated by Matthias Ehrhardt (University of Wuppertal) and Maria do […]

ROMSOC Course on PDAEs in Wuppertal

ROMSOC is a European Industrial Doctorate (EID) project that will run until 2021 bringing together 15 international academic institutions and 11 industry partners. It supports the recruitment of eleven Early Stage Researchers working on individual research projects. The main objective of the ROMSOC project is to lift mathematical Modelling-Simulation-Optimization  and Model Order Reduction to a […]

Industrial Internet for maritime traffic – optimizing routes and reducing fuel consumption

Applied mathematics at Lappeenranta University of Technology (LUT), the Finnish Meteorological Institute (FMI) and Eniram Ltd are developing IOT based data analytics for maritime transport in an Academy of Finland research project. The objective is optimization of maintenance and in the future also routes through digital data collection and analysis. “With the help of the […]

Ensemble Kalman smoothing of algal bloom events

Algal blooms of inland and coastal waters are frequent events that should be broadcast to the general public as a warning. This is rarely done because there are few real-time monitoring systems that allow them to be detected and mapped in real time. The Finnish Environment Centre SYKE aims to build such an operational system […]

CFD modelling for Wind Energy development at LUT Computational Engineering

In Finland, wind energy is one potential renewable energy sources, but has not been widely exploited. Today, the interest for inland wind-farm locations is raising in Finland with several ongoing investment studies. However, inland locations mean complex terrains with hills, forests and lakes, all strongly influencing local weather and wind conditions, hence affecting optimal locations […]
