  • Analysis of viscoelastic cell structures with dynamic topology 

    Albo Guijarro, Santiago (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2012-06-29)
    Minor thesis / Master thesis
    Open Access
    [ANGLÈS] The present work proposes a way to model cell cytoskeleton using truss systems. This allows large deformations and rotations to be handled in a natural way. With this intention a framework has been developed ...
  • Modeling Thermal Turbulence Using Implicit Large Eddy Simulation 

    Hossain, Naim (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2012-06-29)
    Master thesis
    Open Access
    A general description of a thermally coupled fluid flow is given by the incompressible Navier-Stokes equations coupled with the heat equation using Boussinesq approximation, whose mathematical structure is much well ...
  • An improved X-FEM solution to ensure normal stress continuity for two-phase flow problems 

    Bozkus, Hayrullah Kerim (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2012-07-29)
    Master thesis
    Open Access
    In this thesis, starting from the foundations of the Theory of Classical Finite Elements Method, The basic principles of Extended Finite Elements Method (X-FEM) are Explained. Why X-FEM takes place in many applications in ...
  • Numerical Approximation of Filtration Processes through Porous Media 

    Ahmed, Raheel (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2012-06-29)
    Master thesis
    Open Access
    In this thesis, we studied numerical methods for the coupling of free fluid flow with porous medium flow. The free fluid flow is modelled by the Stokes equations while the flow in the porous medium is modelled by Darcy’s ...
  • Simultaneous untangling and smoothing of hexahedral meshnes 

    Rivas Guerra, César Augusto (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2010-02-05)
    Master thesis
    Open Access
    Currently, there is not a general method such that any given geometry can generate a mesh with elements of hexahedral type. However, there are several methods used to create the numerical discretization for certain types ...
  • Approximation of the inductionless MHD system with finite element techniques 

    Planas Badenas, Ramon (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2010-06-01)
    Master thesis
    Open Access
    In this work, a stabilized formulation to solve the inductionless magnetohydrodynamic (MHD) problem using the finite element method is presented. The important feature of this formulation resides in the design of the ...
  • Numerical simulation of the dynamics of fluid membranes 

    Grosjean, Laurence (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2008-07)
    Master thesis
    Open Access
    The goal of this project is to explore the mechanics of lipid fluid membranes as found in biological and made-man systems through continuum models and numerical simulations. Traditionally, the focus has been on the ...
