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 differencing, embedded discrete fracture networks […]

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 the strong acceleration and deceleration […]

The MOX Laboratory

The Modelling and Scientific Computing  Laboratory (MOX) is part of the Department of Mathematics of Politecnico di Milano. It was established in 2002 with the objective of promoting research in the field of mathematical modelling, numerical analysis, scientific computing and statistical analysis, with a special focus on real life applications as well as industrial mathematics.
