Numerical simulation of lifted tribrachial n-heptane laminar flames in heated coflow

This work was presented and published in the proceedings of the 6th European Combustion Meeting in Sweden, 2013. It can be argued that this is the most realistic computer simulation mimicking the n-heptane laminar flames in heated coflow. I had been working on this during my post-doc at King Abdullah University of Science and Technology in Saudi Arabia.

Earthquake, Tsunami, Nuclear Power Plant

As it happened, I've been in the office in Tokyo when the big earthquake happened on Friday, March 11. From the intercom of the institute where I worked, we've got a warning like 10 seconds before, that it was coming. Now, that's really impressive. My colleague made a joke, he jumped under the table and we laughed.

Modelling of hydrated soft tissues using hybrid-Trefftz finite elements

My PhD Thesis is complete. This article provides the abstract and the link to download the PDF file of the Thesis. It is the so called provisory version (documento provisório), since the jury might have some suggestions for improvements before the actual defence.

Animation of the response of hydrated soft tissues in Axisymmetry

Set of films (done by OpenGL) with the evolutions of stress, pressure and displacement fields in time. Several different tests are presented, namely confined compression test and unconfined compression tests in axisymmetry.

Animation of the response of hydrated soft tissues in 2D

Set of films (done by OpenGL) with the evolutions of stress, pressure and displacement fields in time. Several different tests are presented, confined compression test, unconfined compression tests and indentation tests.
