9:00 to 12:00 Optimization in Materials Science: Open Your Minds
Professor Michael Gasik
School of Chemical Technology
Aalto University, Finland
The course answers the questions: what is practical optimization in materials science? what is meta-analysis and how to apply it in materials design and processing. MODAO principles are introduced and discussed. Outline of meta-modeling (RSM) and multivariate analysis (SOM, clustering) is also given. Considered example of application to materials design include demonstrations with mode Frontier MathCAD integration.
13:00 to 19:00: Introduction to Multiphysics Modeling in Microwave Power Engineering
Professor Vadim V. Yakovlev
Department of Mathematical Sciences
Worcester Polytechnic Institute, MA, USA
The course reviews issues and challenges in the development of processes and systems of microwave thermal processing of materials and shows how these difficulties could be addressed (as well as what problems could be resolved) with the use of computer modeling. Scientific and technical aspects of microwave heating and related physical phenomena are discussed in the context of their mathematical characterization; corresponding numerical techniques are briefly reviewed. Options provided by modern computer tools for multiphysics simulation are considered. Computational strategies of modeling systems and processes in microwave processing are discussed and illustrated by examples of successful modeling projects. A hands-on component of the course allows the students to exercise with QuickWave-3D, the modeling software with advanced capabilities in simulation of electromagnetic and thermal phenomena in diverse microwave heating scenarios. Course format: 4 hours of lectures (including Q&A), 2 hours of hands-on computer exercises.
Who Should Attend:
Graduate students in materials science, physics, chemistry, electrical engineering, etc. with research interests in microwave thermal processing; engineers/practitioners involved in development of systems and processes of microwave heating.
