AACME - March 28-29, 2017

AACME 2017

Theme of the workshop

Department of Mechanical Engineering, BITS Pilani-Pilani campus is organizing a two day workshop on "Advanced Applications of Computational Methods in Engineering" during March 28-29, 2017. With the advent of high performance computing and availability of high end hardware, computational modelling and simulations have become an important tool in the engineering analysis. While there are several areas of importance, in this workshop we are focusing on two important emerging areas in this field, computational fluid dynamics and computational materials science. Prof. S. Vengadesan from IIT Madras and Prof. M.P. Gururajan from IIT Bombay will be the chief resource persons. They will be speaking on turbulence modelling, materials modelling at different length scales, molecular dynamics simulations, Montecarlo and phase field methods.
