Our first speaker is Dong Ju Choi from SDSC, discussing his work with PI Christopher Rackauckas, in the math department at UC Irvine to develop a Julia differential equation package on Comet.

Anirban Jana (PSC) will talk about his work with Metin Sitti (Carnegie Mellon) where Anirban developed a way to efficiently simulate microrobots in liquid environments at low Reynolds number. Martin in CMU’s Mechanical Engineering department with courtesy appointments in Biomedical Engineering, Electrical and Computer Engineering and the Robotics Institute. The ECSS project activities included selection of a suitable software stack, workflow development from preprocessing to simulation to analysis, and parallelization of an existing open source Stokes flow BEM code. This enabled simulation time to be reduced from days to minutes, opening up the possibility of comprehensive design space explorations, or more highly resolved simulations, or simulations of much more complex systems such as swarms of microrobots, in the future.

Full details are available at Slides and a recording will be available after the talk.
Please join us for these very compelling presentations.
