More details will appear in the near future on the website The Dutch ESGI will be held in Nijemegen during the same week as the Barcelona meeting. […]

Forced convection film boiling


Dr Gideon Fareo, a lecturer from Johannesburg, has been a visitor to the Industrial Mathematics Group at the CRM since the start of April. He is funded by the CRM’s Dev-Math program and the University of the Witwatersrand. He has been working with Tim Myers on forced convection film boiling … Boiling is a phase […]

More nanomaths … Coexistence of wrinkles and blisters in supported graphene


Coexistence of wrinkles and blisters in supported graphene Kuan Zhang (LaCàN, U. Politècnica de Catalunya) and Marino Arroyo (LaCàN, UPC) During this project we examined the mechanics of bubbles in supported graphene. In experiments, graphene bubbles have been observed with different sizes and shapes. The reported radii of the circular edges of quasi-spherical bubbles range from dozens […]

Mathematics in Nanotechnology


For the past 4 years, the Industrial Mathematics Group at CRM has focussed primarily on applying continuum mathematical models to nanoscale phenomena. Continuum theory may be applied when there is a sufficiently large sample size to ensure that statistical variation of material quantities, such as density, is small. For liquids this suggests a minimum size […]
