Why do bubbles in Guinness go down?

With St. Patrick’s Day fast approaching, it is the best time to recall some interesting physics associated with Ireland’s favourite drink, Guinness. Anyone who has ever tried Guinness knows that bubbles in it sink. In fact, in one’s everyday life, one rarely comes across a more counter-intuitive phenomenon, challenging equally the imagination of a university […]

Topology Optimization and Risk Management

Efficient design is one of the most important objectives in modern engineering. In a multitude of applications this requires the balancing of cost savings and risk management. In the design of load bearing structures it is the goal to minimize material usage and weight while still ensuring design limits and constraints. Less material in key […]

Modeling scattered electromagnetic waves

  by Leonidas Mindrinos (Computational Science Center, University of Vienna, Austria) leonidas.mindrinos@univie.ac.at In many applications, like material parameter investigation and nondestructive testing, arises the inverse problem of reconstructing the position, the shape and / or the properties of a cavity or an inclusion from given measurements. A good knowledge of the direct problem is necessary […]

Detecting cell motion during early embryogenesis

by Lukas F. Lang (RICAM, Austrian Academy of Sciences, Austria) l…@ricam.oeaw.ac.at Our main motivation is to estimate cell motion in time-lapse volumetric microscopy images depicting fluorescently labelled cells of a live zebrafish embryo. It has been only recently possible to obtain high-resolution observations of biological model organisms such as the zebrafish. Increasing spatial and temporal […]
