Coupling between BEM and SHELL models

 The interaction between thin structures and incompressible Newtonian fluids is ubiquitous both in nature and in industrial applications.

Reduced Order Models for Flow Problems

Optimization, control and design problems in aero and hydro dynamics require several evaluations of systems described by partial differential equations (PDEs) and characterized by complex geometrical features. Each realization usually entails some expensive steps:

Isogeometric Analysis - Boundary Element Method

Isogeometric analysis (IGA) is emerging as a technology bridging computer aided geometric design (CAGD), most commonly based on Non-Uniform Rational B-Splines (NURBS) surfaces, and engineering analysis.In finite element and boundary element isogeometric methods (FE-IGA and IGA-BEM), the NURBS basis functions that describe the geometry define also the approximation spaces.

Codimension One Discretisations

The deal.II finite element library ( was originally designed to solve partial differential equations defined on one, two or three space dimensions, mostly via the Finite Element Method.In its versions prior to version 6.2, the user could not solve problems defined on curved manifolds embedded in two or three spacial dimensions

Nonlinear Free-surface Flows

The use of computational tools to predict hydrodynamic performances of ships has gained a lot of popularity in recent years. Models based on potential flow theory have historically been among the most successful to assess the wave pattern around a ship hull in presence of a forward ship motion.

Reverse Engineering Biological Microswimmers

Most unicellular eukaryotes swim using flagella. A notable exception to this strategy is the one used by Euglenoids during metaboly. In this phase, they move using large-amplitude highly concerted deformations of the entire body. A plastic cell envelope called pellicle mediates these deformations.In this research, we explore the biophysics of this motility mode.
