Visualisation of FFEA tool results


Hi all, have you noticed that it is end of summer? This summer was so crazy fast, that I almost didn’t notice. Now it is time to explain to you what I have done during the last two months. Don’t

Numerical Algorithms in LQCD


Here I will attempt to explain some of the more technical numerical aspects as to the algorithms being used in tmLQCD and some other interesting things about QCD. A computationally significant part of Lattice Quantum Chromodynamics is the solving of

Zagreb, Vienna, OpenFoam vs ANSYS


I’ve had a busy and fun couple of weeks. After weeks of wrestling with OpenFOAM I finally got some results comparable to experiment and the commercial CFD software ANSYS. As usual, I’ve been traveling on weekends whenever possible. First the
