Object-Oriented Spatial Statistics for the geosciences

The advent of modern technologies for data acquisition is leading to data-rich industrial and environmental contexts. Not only large datasets, but most often complex types of data, such as curves, images or tensors, are routinely collected in data-driven engineering applications, posing new challenges for geo-scientists. In recent years, the Statistics […]

Functional and Object-oriented Data Analysis for Mobility

Statisticians are currently asked to develop tools to analyze extremely complex data often far from the standard Euclidean framework (e.g., curves, networks, compositions, images, tensors). The Statistics group at MOX proposes a paradigm of statistical investigation based on the idea of developing sound approaches to data analysis able to provide […]

Simpaty: topology optimization for free-form design

Professors Simona Perotto and Stefano Micheletti, in collaboration with Thales Alenia Space Italia, at MOX Laboratory of Politecnico di Milano have developed a new mathematical algorithm, named Simpaty, that can be employed in a finite element setting for the topology optimization of mechanical components. The resulting configurations are characterized by […]

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 […]

Modeling subsurface flows

The modelling of subsurface flow in complex heterogeneous and fractured media is relevant for several applications like oil recovery, CO2 sequestration, thermal energy storage, geothermy. In the compgeo activity group of the MOX Laboratory we have investigated various numerical techniques to tackle this complex phenomena: eXtended finite elements, mimetic finite […]

Numerical methods for the design of rowing boats

  The dynamics of competition rowing boats is a complex fluid structure interaction phenomena where the complex dynamics of the rower-boat system interact with free surface flow. Energy is dissipated non only by viscous and wave drag forces but also by the surface waves radiated  from the boat because of […]

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 […]
