Numerical Techniques for Interface Dynamics in Complex Geometries using Overlapping Grids

2:00 PM-4:00 PM
New England

The numerical solution of problems involving moving interfaces or boundaries in complex domains requires a combination of techniques including grid generation, solution based adaptation, and advanced algorithms for partial differential equations. The speakers will discuss numerical methods for a range of applications where moving interfaces or boundaries are important features of the problems. Some common themes in the numerical methods they will present are the use of overlapping grids to handle the complex geometries and the use of various types of solution adaptivity for efficiency and accuracy.
