Uncertainty Quantification for blood pump simulation

Aims & objectives The ventricular assist device (VAD) – blood pump – is one of the most important cardiac therapeutic instruments in the last two decades, more than 23 million people are suffering from heart failure (HF) worldwide. Meanwhile, the centrifugal pump is then the most comm concept for transcutaneous and implantable VADs which support…

Large high-dimensional clustering

Aims & objectives Today’s scientific and industrial data-sets often cover all aspects of the well-known big data characteristics (value, velocity, variety, veracity, volume). Especially in astronomy, data analysis methods with big data compatibility are key to solve the problem statements of this field. Based on pre-processed data dedicated features are extracted. In most cases a…

Hardware-aware computing for Uncertainty Quantification

Aims & objectives In the last decades speeding up the computation of scientific applications was mostly achieved by increasing the frequency of a single core processor. Due to the technical limitations it is not possible to further increase this frequency nowadays. Therefore, oone possibility is to increase the amount of homogenous cores on the same…

Uncertainty Quantification and High-Performance Computing

Aims & objectives The increasing demand on the quality and reliability of numerical simulations of physical problems results in an increasing complexity of mathematical models. Especially, the knowledge for the description and definition of model relevant parameters often cannot be assumed to be available in a deterministic way. There are often uncertainties involved, which can…

Optimal Economic Power Flow

Aims & objectives Against the background of liberalization of energy markets, increasing fuel costs and decentralized power generation by renewable energy sources, nowadays running an electrical power grid in an efficient way is becoming more and more important. The problem of determining an optimal operation state and an optimal power grid extension is known as…

Software module development for Uncertainty Quantification in HiFlow3

Aims & objectives HiFlow3 (www.hiflow3.org) is a multi-purpose finite element software providing powerful tools for efficient and accurate solution of a wide range of problems modeled by partial differential equations (PDEs). Based on object-oriented concepts and the full capabilities of C++ the HiFlow³ project follows a modular and generic approach for building efficient parallel numerical…
