Reduced models for the packaging industry

Model reduction techniques based on either geometrical multi-scale modeling (coupling of differential models operating at different spatial dimensions) or reduced order modeling (e.g. Proper Orthogonal Decomposition or Reduced Basis) have proved very successful for the simulation of complex integrated systems, such as the human cardiovascular system. The long-lasting experience at MOX in such type of […]

Statistical Analysis of High Dimensional & Complex Data

The last years have seen the advent and development of many devices able to record and store an always increasing amount of complex and high dimensional data: 3D images generated by medical scanners, satellite remote sensing, system control datasets, administrative databases, mobile phone data, etc. The analysis of these complex and high dimensional data poses […]

Physics-based numerical modeling for seismic risk mitigation

Mathematical and numerical modeling can be used to better understand the physics of earthquakes, improve the design of site-specific structures and facilities, and enhance seismic risk maps. The reliability of existing tools for earthquake and ground-motion prediction, i.e. Ground Motion Prediction Equations (GMPEs), which are based on empirical relations involving earthquake magnitude, source-to-site distance, fault […]

Computational Geomechanics at MOX

The CompGeo group of the MOX Laboratory gathers researchers in numerical analysis and statistics with the purpose of studying the complex coupled problems related to flow and deformation in the subsurface at different time and space scales, with a focus on energy and risk assessment. Fault reactivation We are investigating geomechanical problems in the presence […]
