Stochastic Modelling of Cold Spray Coatings Microstructure

Modern materials manufacturing has evolved toward a better control and optimization at the microscopic scale. Hence, microstructures commonly exhibit complex morphologies mixing various materials including carbon fibers arrangements into polymer matrix. The physical and mechanical features of heterogeneous materials at the macroscopic scale are largely dictated by phenomena appearing at the microscopic level. In this […]

Numerical models and homogenization to study the sensitivity of energetic materials: effect of damage and microstructure

Shock sensitivity is often studied in order to improve the safety of energetic materials (i.e., explosives). Numerous studies have shown that the former is sensitive to microstructural characteristics. However, the exact mechanisms responsible for the interplay between mechanical damage, microstructure heterogeneities (grains shape, intra or extra-granular effects) during initiation have not been fully understood. The […]

A new Tenure track at the Centre for Mathematical Morphology

My name is Samy Blusseau and I started a Tenure track at the Centre for Mathematical Morphology (CMM) of Mines ParisTech in March. I had already done a one year postdoc at the CMM since February 2017, jointly with the LTCI lab of Télécom ParisTech, under the supervision of Jesus Angulo, Santiago Velasco-Forero, Isabelle Bloch […]

139 European Study Group with Industry

139 ESGI-European Study Group with Industry–, jointly organized by the Technological Institute for Industrial Mathematics (ITMATI) and Spanish Network for Mathematics & Industry (math-in), will be held on 9-13 July in Santiago de Compostela (Spain). Across a five day workshop, the ESGI provide a forum for industrial scientist to work alongside academic mathematicians on problems […]

The Era of Mathematics – Review Findings on Knowledge Exchange in the Mathematical Sciences Published

A new report was launched recently at the House of Lords; the Era of Mathematics – an Independent Review of Knowledge Exchange in the Mathematics “We live in the era of mathematics. Its influence permeates economic and social activity and its influence and impact are profound. Yet its role is not well understood, we are not […]

MACSI wins a Knowledge Transfer Ireland Research Impact Award for a Second Year in a Row!

A Project led by MACSI PhD Student Kevin Brosnan with Drs David O’Sullivan and Kevin Burke was awarded the 2018 Knowledge Transfer Ireland Research Consultancy Impact Award. The judges found that  Consultancy Impact Award winners, ‘University of Limerick and Xtract 360 Ltd’ were a compelling case for how a company can achieve value through accessing short term advice and expertise […]

Inferring the Structure of Galaxies with Deep Convolutional Neural Networks

The popular and beautiful galaxy images provided from telescopes like the NASA’s Hubble Space Telescope or the Sloan Digital Sky Survey, enabled astronomers to a plethora of studies that greatly improved our knowledge of the Universe and its evolution. In particular the structure of the galaxies can be effectively characterized from their surface light profile […]

A PhD in the DAAD Program “Mathematics in Industry and Commerce”

  Agent Based Modeling of Spatially Inhomogeneous Host-Vector Disease Transmission In recent years disease transmission has been studied intensively. In these models, disease transmission represents the contact between host individuals in directly transmitted diseases, or between host and vector individuals in host-vector diseases. A series of different models for vector-bourne diseases such as Dengue fever […]

DYMARA – A dynamic manikin with fiber-based modeling of skeletal muscles

This project aims at the development of a fiber-based modeling approach for the behavior of muscles within the musculoskeletal system. Supported by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research, three departments of the Fraunhofer ITWM Kaiserslautern, TU Kaiserslautern and FAU Erlangen join forces in this project, along with the industrial partners fleXstructures GmbH and […]

Flow of Blood: Coupling hyperbolic PDEs with switched DAEs

Modeling the flow of blood in the human circulatory system is a challenging task involving many mathematical aspects. In this joined project of the TU Kaiserslautern and the University of Groningen funded by the DFG SPP1962 Priority Program  we study hyperbolic partial differential equations (PDEs) with boundary conditions driven by switched differential algebraic equations (DAEs). The […]
