Modelling, Simulation and Optimization to save Energy

Climate change has acquired an increased importance – in society as well as politics. Pupils participate in the continually growing „Fridays for Future“ movement and The Greens – EFA (the green group of the European Parliament) were historically successful in the latest European election.  And Academia is also participating! Hello, […]

Mathematical Modeling for Patient-specific Assessment of Tumor Margins for Glioma

Malignant glioma make up about half of all primary brain tumors in adults. These rapidly growing neoplasms are characterized by direct invasion of the neighboring brain tissue and occur in all age classes, being most frequent in later life. Due to their high proliferation rate and diffusive tumor infiltration it […]

Shape Optimization for Industrial Problems: A PhD at the Fraunhofer ITWM

Hi, my name is Sebastian Blauth and I am working as a PhD student at the Fraunhofer Institute for Industrial Mathematics (ITWM) in cooperation with the TU Kaiserslautern. The great thing about this collaboration is that I get to see two different perspectives on applied mathematics. First, the theoretical point […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

Shape Optimization for Energy-efficient High Temperature Processes

The energy transition will only be a success story if the consumption of fossil-fuel can be significantly reduced. In Germany, 40 % of the heat consumption takes place in the industrial sector and thereof 90 % are used for process heat. Since high temperature processes go normally hand in hand […]
