Transport Processes

Fraunhofer Institute for Industrial Mathematics ITWM

The main competence of the Department of Transport Processes is the mathematical modeling of complex industrial problems and the development of efficient algorithms for their numerical solution (simulation).

The problems belong to a technical scientific context (fluid dynamics, radiative transfer, acoustics, structure mechanics, etc.) and can be formulated mathematically as partial (integro-)differential equations which are mostly to be characterized as transport equations. Industrial customers typically require the optimization of products, the technical design of production processes, or simulation-based measurement methods. Here, the department offers, e.g., cooperation projects with those R&D departments of partner enterprises which are focused on scientific engineering, studies including design and optimization proposals, concept development, as well as software solutions.
