Open student projects
Topics change with my ongoing work and depend mostly on the interests and experience of the student. It is best to contact me directly if you are interested in a thesis or student project. Here is a list of topics I am interested in:
- (More or less) everything connected to preCICE, especially development of fenics-precice adapter and fluent-precice adapter code
- Multiphysics (e.g. fluid-structure interaction, conjugate heat transport)
- Multiscale in time
- Time integration methods
- Computational fluid dynamics
- Finite element method with FEniCS
- Using FEniCS for FSI (see this paper)
- Other coupled phenomena besides the usual suspects FSI and CHT
- Coupled thermal simulation for space missions (in cooperation with LRT @ TUM Mechanical Engineering)
Running Student Projects
Past student projects
- Hisham Saeed developed a first prototype and corresponding test scenarios for the Elmer adapter for preCICE during his master thesis.
- Nikola Wullenweber worked on solving different problems in FEniCS using higher-order time stepping schemes for her bachelor thesis.
- Ishaan Desai worked on the FEniCS adapter and the Fluent adapter for preCICE and its python bindings.
- Moritz Gnisia was a student assistant. He modernized the code framework of the course "CFD Lab" and developed a CI infrastructure and auxiliary tools for the course.
- Richard Hertrich developed a tutorial for the "replay mode" of preCICE as a student assistant.
- Richard Hertrich developed FSI tutorials for preCICE that use FEniCS and OpenFOAM and extended the FEniCS adapter for preCICE during his bachelor thesis.
- Richard Hertrich also worked on the Fluent adapter for preCICE during his research internship.
- Dominik Volland developed the MATLAB bindings for preCICE during his master thesis.
- Gilberto Lem Carrillo helped with the integration of the MATLAB bindings as a student assistant.
