MODCLIM Intermediate Meeting: 9th of September, LUT

On Wednesday, 9th of September, was held the intermediate meeting  of the MODCLIM Project at the Lappeenranta University of Technology (Finland), which gathered representatives from the universities of the consortium in Lappeenranta.

By a hand, in this intermediate meeting, the consortium has analyzed the develop of the project from the beginning until now: aspects concerning to the objectives, activities, events, academic issues, formalization and management of the documents, finances, etc.

On the other hand, this meeting has allowed to set the definitive dates for the future events to be developed within the MODCLIM Project (Training School 2016, Intermediate Project (online), Workshop 2016, final meeting, activities for dissemination of the project,...), to propose new topics for the future training schools and workshops (coming from the different partners); to establish the deadlines for proposing more topics, to select the new instructors/supervisors, to select the new students, etc.

Finally, the consortium decided to request for the extension of the project until the end of 2016.

Opening session of the Workshop on Computational and Modeling Problems for Industry at LUT

On Monday, September 7th, at 9:00 am in the Lappeenranta University of Technology (Student Union House Auditorium), has been inaugurated the Modeling Clinic for Industrial Mathematics/European Study Group with Industry ESCI 112.

The meeting, organized by MODCLIM project, will last until Friday September 11th and the workshop venue and program is available in the following link. Thirty two PhD students and teachers will attend to this event, coming from MODCLIM partner universities, russian universities, african universities and indian universities.

After the inaguration, each expert has presented the topics to be developed in specific workshops along the week, which are the following:

  • Solar farm modeling (ULPGC)
  • Mathematical modeling of displacements and thermal sptresses in anisotropic materials in cooling (CSC)
  • How to measure the intra-ocular pressure (WrUT)
  • Thrusters with additional stators (CEID/Elomatic)
  • Non-aerobic water purification reactor (LUT)
  • Performance of a pn junction in a solar cell (Catania)
  • Detection and compensation of Vortex Induced Vibrations (FMC/SPbSTU)

 Further information about the problems proposed.

The teams will work on their problem by communicating via internet, skype etc. The MODCLIM lecturers will provide some remote guidance and supervision of the project team.

The student team should select one among themselves to act as the team leader and contact person to communicate with the lecturer. The team should self-organize, divide sub tasks, agree who will edit the final report etc.
