Synergy for Smart Multi-Objective Optimisation (SYNERGY)

Start date: Feb 1, 2016, End date: Jan 31, 2019,

Many real-world application areas, such as advanced manufacturing, involve optimisation of several, often time-consuming and conflicting objectives. For example, they require the maximisation of the product quality while minimising the production cost, and rely on demanding numerical simulations in order to assess the objectives. These, so-called multi-objective optimisation problems can be solved ...

Lasers have found widespread application in medicine, such as for photothermal therapy. Gold nanoparticles (AuNPs), are often used as enhancers of the photothermal effect since they can efficiently absorb laser light and convert it into thermal energy. When absorbing intense nano- or picosecond laser pulses, AuNPs can become extremely hot and water vapor nanobubbles (VNBs) can emerge around these ...

MULTISCALE MODELLING OF THE RHEOLOGY OF MANTLE MINERALS (RheoMan)

Start date: May 1, 2012, End date: Apr 30, 2018,

Understanding mantle convection is essential to understand the thermal and chemical evolution of the Earth and to constrain the forces driving plate tectonics. The rheological properties of the mantle are traditionally inverted from surface geophysical data. Radial profiles of the viscosity are thus available but a lot of uncertainties remain.A more detailed model of mantle rheology could be obtai ...
