Software class: Gascoigne 3D
Part 1: Introduction to Gascoigne
Gascoigne 3D is a C++ software library for the solution of partial
differential equations. The focus of Gascoigne is to offer a
framework for the efficient simulation of complex systems of
equations. Typical applications include diffusion and transport
processes, flow problems, chemical reactions, problems in
structure mechanics, and also coupled problems.
This first part of the Gascoigne class will introduce the basic
concepts of Gascoigne 3D, such as
- Implementation of simple partial differential equations
- Specification of the problem data: boundary conditions,
right-hand side, domains and triangulations
- Nonlinear differential equations
- Systems of differential equations
- Error estimation and mesh control
As Gascoigne is written in C++, fundamental programming skills in
C/C++ will be necessary.
April 8 to April 12, 10:15 to 11:45. The class will take place in
the Applied Math Computer Pool, INF 294. You'll need an
for this pool.
Part 2: Multiphysics-Problems with Gascoigne 3D
The second part of this class will deal with the discretization
and simulation of coupled multiphysics-problems using Gascoigne
3D. We will discuss volume coupled problems like chemically
reactive flows or transport processes and surface coupled problems
like fluid-structure interactions.
Part 2 cannot be taken without Part 1 (or a previous introduction
All participants will work on a project. The first meeting with
further information will take place on April 16 at 15:15 in Room
215, INF 293
