Contexte et atouts du poste

IsoGeometric Analysis (IGA) offers a powerful framework for the numerical analysis of complex geometric structures, but it comes with significant challenges, particularly in the development of analysis-suitable shape representations. This position aims at the development of novel spline constructions for isogeometric analysis in two and three dimensions. The candidate will work on the definition and implementation of geometrically continuous splines over unstructured meshes. The goal is to obtain accurate description of complex shapes and smooth representations that are suitable for both modeling and analysis.
The universal models shall be applied to modeling and model reconstruction as well as in the numerical resolution of partial differential equations.

Mission confiée

This research position aims to develop robust and computationally efficient spline representation and domain parameterization techniques to address the need for analysis-suitable shape descriptions in the context of isogeometric analysis.

Principales activités

Develop and implement geometrically continuous spline techniques in two and three dimensions and use them for the description of shapes with general topology.

Explore and develop approaches with computational efficiency as a priority, making them highly applicable in real-world scenarios.

Explore isogeometric methods on the new constructions, assess the smoothness form the geometric sude and numerical accuracy from the analysis side.

The findings and methods developed will be integrated into the software library Geometry + Simulation Modules.
