Jens Harting, professor from the Friedrich-Alexander-University of Erlangen-Nürnberg, will give the SFB 1313 online short course "Mesoscale simulations for microfluidic applications".
About the Short Course
The lecture summarizes research using computer simulations of a number of microfluidic applications including dynamic wetting phenomena, droplet dynamics, (colloidal) suspensions, biological fluids or transport in porous media. After an introduction the pros and cons of some available mesoscale simulation methods (the lattice Boltzmann method, dissipative particle dynamics, multiparticle collision dynamics, etc.), we focus on a few selected examples where specific methods are particularly suitable.
