Both PhD students will work on the project “Ultrasound-mediated transport of nanoparticles in tissue: Creating a predictive model combining theory, simulations and experiments” funded by the Research Council of Norway. The first PhD student will be working experimentally and the other one working on simulations and modelling. It is expected that the 2 PhDs collaborate

Based on the recommendation of the Awards Committee of the International Society for Porous Media (InterPore), Dr. Hamed Aslannejad has been selected to receive the InterPore – PoreLab Award 2020 for Young Researchers. Congratulations! Hamed is a post-doc researcher at Utrecht University in the Netherlands. His current research concerns the interaction of water-based inks and
MMC2 5 October – 9 October 2020 The RILEM Multi-scale Modelling Course for Concrete (MMC2) provides the opportunity for participants to become familiar with modelling cementitious materials at four levels of detail. Different ways of schematization and numerical approaches are considered to simulate the chemical, physical and mechanical behaviour of cementitious materials. The main back-bone
Read how inconsistencies are removed by properly incorporating the curvature dependence of the surface tension of the mixture into classical nucleation theory for multicomponent systems
This is the last publication from Ailo Aasen , David Reguera and Øivind Wilhelmsen available under the PHYSICAL REVIEW LETTERS 124, Issue 4. The study of nucleation in fluid mixtures exposes challenges beyond those of pure systems. A striking example is homogeneous condensation in highly surface-active water alcohol mixtures, where classical nucleation theory yields an
A landmark national agreement has been signed on January 28, 2020 by the Norwegian Directorate for ICT and Joint Services in Higher Education & Research (Unit) and the leading open access publisher Frontiers. The terms of the agreement will simplify the publishing process for Norwegian researchers who publish in Frontiers’ journals. The deal includes a
The University of Grenoble is organizing a short workshop on “Mechanics of geomaterials from micro to macro“, which will be held in Grenoble (France) on June 29 and 30, as a pre-event to the IACMAG conference in Torino. This short event will be devoted to multi-scale numerical modelling in geotechnical engineering and geomechanics. The first
