EpideMSE – Epidemiological Modeling, Simulation and Decision Support of COVID-19

Intensice Care Bed Capacity

When the Covid19-Pandemic started in early 2020, Germany reacted with strict, acute nationwide measures that aimed at minimizing infection risk within the population. These included closing possible meeting locations such as schools, non-essential shops, playgrounds, restaurants and the like. Now that the numbers have declined, the government was and is faced with the dilemma of balancing citizens’ freedom rights against the risk of a new wave of infection. With smaller, but heterogeneously distributed outbreaks, local health authorities and politicians are now responsible for deciding on the degree of relaxation of protective measures in their administrative districts. There are currently numerous publications and pre-publications (cf. Flaxman, 2020) in which scientists analyze the current infection situation and attempt to predict the further course of the pandemic. Nevertheless, it cannot be expected that a district administrator or the head of the local health department will have the time and training to apply the study results, which were prepared for specific countries, regions or cities, to the situation in his or her district.

MESHFREE – more freedom in CAE

MESHFREE simulation of Karman vortex street with adaptive point refinement due to the gradient of velocity.

The complexity and difficulties of a flow simulation is highly dimensional. In many cases, we have only little or diffuse knowledge about boundary conditions or material properties. Moreover, the geometry might be extensive and very detailed, it may deform/move/change during the flow process. The flow might contain free surfaces or […]

Modelling Light Propagation in Ocular Tissues

The cornea is the transparent part of the eye’s outer sheath and the primary refractive element in the optical system of the eye. Indeed, its curved interface with the air provides three-fourths of the eye’s focusing power (the remainder being provided by the lens). Maintenance of its curvature and clarity […]

Bembel Project – A Boundary Element Method Based Engineering Library

The boundary element method (BEM) or method of moments (MoM) is a common approach for the solution of partial differential equations (PDEs) in engineering applications such as acoustic and electromagnetic scattering problems in homogeneous media. It is accepted in industry and there are many free and proprietary implementations. Bembel’s logo […]
