The talk On water transport in partially-molten ice -- a multi-phase theory approach, by Ondřej Souček, is held on Monday April 15, 2013 at 8:30 in room K4. Abstract We present a two-phase model for thermo-mechanical evolution of partially molten ice and gravity-driven water extraction. We perform scale analysis and associated model reduction in a physical ...

The talk A thermodynamically compatible model for describing the response of asphalt binders, by Karel Tůma, is held on Monday April 8, 2013 at 8:30 in room K4.

The talk on First-Order System Finite Element Methods and Applications in Solid Mechanics, by Gerhard Starke (Leibniz Universität Hannover), is held on Monday March 18, 2013 at 8:30 in room K4. Abstract Mathematical models in solid mechanics are often treated numerically based on variational principles involving displacements as process variables. In many circumstances accurate stress approximations ...

The talk on PDE-Constrained Optimization - A Linear Algebra Perspective, by Roland Herzog (TU Chemnitz), is held on Monday February 18, 2013 at 8:30 in room K4. Abstract The term 'PDE-constrained optimization' refers to optimization problems which involve partial differential equations as side constraints. Problems of this class arise, for instance, in parameter identification as well ...
