preCICE Workshop 2022: Introduce yourself!

Hello Everyone,

My name is Sanjoy Kumar Saha. I am a Master’s course student in the division of Mechanical and Space Engineering, Hokkaido University, Japan. The theme of my research is focused on predicting the dynamic behavior of re-entry capsules in supersonic and hypersonic regions.
I have recently started using preCICE to simulate the interaction between a fluid and flexible materials of the heat shield in space transport systems. This is my first preCICE workshop. Through it, I want to get to know preCICE and excited to meet the community.

Looking forward to see you next week.

Hi everyone,
I am Erik Scheurer, a bachelor student at the University of Stuttgart. I’m studying Simulation Technology doing my Bachelors thesis. Since summer of last year I’ve been working on the ls-dyna adapter and the julia bindings of PreCICE.

This will be my first workshop and I’m looking forward to next week!

Hello Everyone:)
My name is Mishal Raza and I am a senior, currently pursuing my Bachelors in Mechanical and Energy Engineering, with a minor in math, at the University of North Texas. I work as an Undergraduate Research Assistant at the University’s CFD lab and am part of UNT’s Super Grad Track which means that I can start my Ph.D. as soon as I graduate with my Bachelors.

We have worked on several research projects ranging from ship hydrodynamics to bio transport. My research involves the use of our recently developed novel interpolation-free sharp-interface Immersed Boundary Method and couple it with a structural solver to conduct FSI on a realistic structure of the human aortic valve. This information is to be utilized to observe the deposit patterns of calcium on valve leaflets in order to aid in curing Calcific Aortic Valve Disease.

I am fairly new to preCICE and was able to install it on my laptop but have still been having issues with its installation on a cluster however, as I deal with that, I would love to learn more about case setup from scratch using CalculiX or DealII and OpenFOAM.

Super excited to meet amazing researchers and looking forward to this workshop!

Hi there,

My name is Frédéric Simonis. I a PhD candidate at the Technical University of Munich and one of the core developers of preCICE. My primary focus is to keep preCICE in ship shape condition and modernize it beyond that. I frequently take the role of the Release Manager and am keeping preCICE in-line with the Extreme-scale Scientific Software Development Kit or xSDK.

My research involves the implementation of adaptive-dynamic meshes in preCICE, which will enable the use of adaptive mesh-refinement at the solver interface meshes as well as solver-steered re-meshing.

During this workshop, I would like to find out how we can improve the availability and usability of preCICE in the short- and long-term.

Looking forward to meeting you next week!

Hello eveyone,
I am Muhammad Hassani from Max Planck institute for Iron Research. I am a Postdoctoral researcher working on integration of new simulation tools into pyiron, the IDE for material science. Pyiron provides an environment to ease the development of complex simulation workflows.
In this workshop, I will introduce pyiron and how one can use it to perform coupled FEniCS simulations using precice.
Look forward to meeting you in the workshop.

Hi everyone,

I’m Boris Martin and I am a master student at the Technical University of Munich. I’ve been working on the CalculiX adapter for ~6 months to keep it up to date, improve its usability & documentation and chase some bugs. I’m looking forward to broaden my perspectives.

Hi there!

My name is Arved Enders-Seidlitz and I am PhD student at Leibniz Institute for Crystal Growth. Since the last workshop I got involved with the preCICE coupling of Elmer / FEniCSx with OpenFOAM, about which I will tell you more on Tuesday.

On GitHub you can find me as arvedes, where I spend most of the time in the repositories of the nemocrys project. Recently, I also contributed a bit to the (experimental) Elmer / FEniCSx adapters.

At the workshop I am particularly interested in couplings involving FEniCS, Elmer and OpenFOAM and I am curious to learn more about the latest development of preCICE.

I am looking forward to meet you all soon!

Hello everyone,

I am Steffen Gerhäusser from the University of Stuttgart. I started my PhD at the Institute of Statics and Dynamics for Aerospace Structures. My PhD topic is the multiscale simulation of the human liver, for which I am looking forward to use preCICE.

I am relatively new to preCICE, as I have only done some tutroials so far.

Best regards

Hi Everyone!

This is Nitish, a young doctorate from TU Delft and currently working for Belgium Research Institute. In the past, I have worked in the development SU2, and I maintain a blade parametrization tool on GitHub. Besides, I have some experience with OpenFoam. Through this course, I would like to learn how preCICE can be instrumental in coupling the different solvers.

I am looking forward to this workshop and meeting you guys there.

Cheers,
Nitish

Hello everyone,

My name is René (renefritze on github and most everywhere else). I’m a main developer of the Model Order Reduction Framework pyMOR. I’ve come into contact with preCICE, and @uekerman, many moons ago in the SPPEXA project. However I’ve only recently started actually working with preCICE in a project with @DavidSCN where we’re trying to combine model reduction with pyMOR and coupling with preCICE.

I’m looking forward to meeting all of you and getting glimpses of all the diverse use cases of preCICE.

Hello everyone,

I am Louis Viot (https://github.com/LouieVoit), a post-doc at Helmut-Schmidt Universität in the HPC team (https://www.hsu-hh.de/hpc/). I’m working on multi-scale flow modeling, mostly between a molecular dynamics solver and a continuum solver (lattice Boltzmann or CFD). I’ve recently started to couple preCICE with our in-house Macro/Micro coupling tool MaMiCo (https://github.com/HSU-HPC/MaMiCo) so that we can use all the functionalities of preCICE with MaMiCo and all the already available CFD adapters.

Looking forward to meet you guys and join the preCICE community, this is my first time here :slight_smile:

Best,
Louis

Hello everyone,

My name is Scott Levie, I’m a current Ph.D. student at University College Dublin. My core research involves the acceleration of finite volume methods for solid mechanics using deep learning. My work predominantly uses solids4foam, the open-source toolbox for solid mechanics and FSI within OpenFOAM.

Recently I’ve been looking into allowing solids4foam solvers to fully support preCICE coupling. So far my supervisor (Dr. Philip Cardiff) and I have edited the preCICE OpenFOAM-adaptor FSI module (link here) to read forces and write displacements, allowing for FSI coupling of solids4foam solid solvers. However, this is still very much a work in progress. I’m hoping to learn where my adaptor’s downfalls are when using complicated test cases.

Looking forward to meeting everyone!

Scott

Hello everyone,

I am Matthias Freimuth and a PhD candidate at MTU Aero Engines in Munich. I am currently working on a preCICE adapter for the TRACE code to simulate turbomachinery flows.
I also modify and extend the CalculiX adapter as part of my work.
I have been involved with preCICE since I wrote my master’s thesis three years ago and have already attended the last workshops.
I’m looking forward to learning about the developments in preCICE itself and its old and new applications this year.

See you!
