Multiscale Fluid and Plasma Dynamics using Particles

Project description

Multiscale models that enable us to see the forest by looking at the trees

From satellites in space to advanced coating processes and nanofluidic devices, flows of fluids and plasmas are of critical importance on multiple scales. The specific condition of non-equilibrium flow is particularly important given its potential for unexpected and undesired outcomes, while it is difficult to describe mathematically. The EU-funded MEDUSA project is investigating what happens in fluids and plasmas, and how they affect other materials whether in microscopic volumes and systems or in ones we can see with telescopes. Taking advantage of ever-increasing computing power, the team is developing novel multiscale models of fluid and plasma flow based on the dynamics of the particles within them.
