ICES postdoctoral fellow Chung-Hao Lee in the Center for Cardiovascular Simulation (CCS), studies the biomechanics and cell mechanobiology of the heart’s mitral valve—the organ that helps prevent the backflow of blood from the heart’s left ventricle into the left atrium when the heart pumps blood to the body.
It’s an area of multiscale study that involves understanding how different levels of life—from cells, to tissues, to organ parts—influence one another and, in effect, the overall functioning of the valve. Read more.Posted: Nov. 12, 2015
A team of ICES researchers and collaborators at NYU, IBM, and Caltech has been selected for their work on extreme-scale implicit solvers as one of five finalists in supercomputing’s most prestigious competition, the ACM Gordon Bell Prize in High Performance Computing. The $10,000 prize will be presented to a single winner during SC15 in Austin Nov. 19. Read more.Posted: Nov. 10, 2015
ICES Director J. Tinsley Oden was inducted into the Hall of Fame for Oklahoma State's College of Engineering, Architecture, and Technology.
The honor recognized his distinguished contributions to the literature in computational and theoretical mechanics, continuum mechanics, and structural mechanics. Oden had received the College's first Melvin R. Lohmann Medal in 1991 for his earlier contributions. Read more.Posted: Oct. 29, 2015
ICES Professor Thomas J.R. Hughes has given three national and international plenary lectures in the past three months.
Most recently he gave the Invited Lecture to the Full Assembly of the Austrian Academy of Sciences (Gesamt Akademie) in Vienna, October 16. The lecture was entitled “Patient Specific Computer Modeling and the Predictive Paradigm in Cardiovascular Medicine.”
On September 1 Hughes was in Barcelona, Spain to give the Keynote Plenary Lecture for the XIII International Conference on Computational Plasticity, Fundamentals and Applications, COMPLAS XIII. It was entitled “Isogeometric Phase-field Modeling of Brittle and Ductile Fracture.” Read more.Posted: Oct. 28, 2015
ICES Professor Chandrajit Bajaj gave the banquet talk at Sandia National Laboratories' 24th Annual International Meshing Roundtable Oct. 13.
Bajaj spoke to nature's abundance of meshes that it uses to refine its form and function models through its own multi-scale, multi-chemistry/physics simulations. His use of rich visuals offered what he called "a few but surprising examples of nature’s geometric dexterity and some of the lessons we continue to learn from it." Read more.Posted: Oct. 22, 2015
