Abstract:Due to their large mass and small aspect ratio, icebergs pose a threat to boats and offshore structures. Small icebergs and bergy bits can cause harm to platform hulls and are more difficult to discover remotely. When there is a risk of collision between icebergs and platforms, it is necessary to deflect its drifting course to ensure safe human operations in polar offshore regions. In this talk, I will present iceberg towing experiments carried out on Svalbard in September 2020...

Abstract: We report on the observation of gravity-capillary wave turbulence on the surface of a fluid in a high-gravity environment. By using a large-diameter centrifuge, the effective gravity acceleration is tuned up to 20 times Earth’s gravity. The transition frequency between the gravity and capillary regimes is thus increased up to one decade as predicted theoretically. A frequency power-law wave spectrum is observed in each regime and is found to be independent of the gravity level and of the wave steepness. While the timescale separation required by weak turbulence is well verified experimentally regardless of the gravity level, the nonlinear and dissipation timescales are found to be independent of the scale, as a result of the finite size effects of the system (large-scale container modes) that are not taken currently into account theoretically.

Abstract: I will present a Biot-Stokes formulation created by Ricardo Ruiz-Baier. The formulations consists of a fluid-structure interaction model for flow of a Newtonian fluid, coupled with Biot consolidation equations through an interface, and incorporates total pressure as an unknown in the poroelastic region. I will also present a preconditioner for this system which is robust in all parameters and apply the model to a third circulation process to show the velocity fields in the brains subarachnoid space.

Abstract: If a droplet smaller than the capillary length is placed on a substrate with a conical shape, it spreads by itself in the direction of growing fibre radius. We describe this capillary spreading dynamics by developing a lubrication flow approximation on a cone and by using the perturbation method of matched asymptotic expansions. The droplet velocity is found to increase with the cone angle but decrease with the cone radius. We show that a film is formed at the receding part of the droplet, much like the classical Landau–Levich–Derjaguin film. By using the approach of matching asymptotic profiles in the film region and the quasi-static droplet, we obtain the same film thickness as the results from the lubrication approach. Our results show that manipulating the droplet size, the cone angle and the slip length provides different schemes for guiding droplet motion and coating the substrate with a film.​

Abstract: Physics-informed neural networks (PINNs) are a new and promising methodology to combine deep learning with partial differential equations (PDE). PINNs extend deep neural networks by regularizing their output to fulfill any given PDE, allowing to solve both forward and inverse PDE problems utilizing high-performance machine learning libraries such as Tensorflow and PyTorch. This talk will give a short introduction to PINNs and provide a detailed, tutorial-style code demonstration on their implementation in PyTorch.

Abstract: Intraluminal vesicle (ILV) formation plays a crucial role in the attenuation of growth factor receptor signaling. The endosomal sorting complex required for transport (ESCRT-0 to -III/VPS4) mediates this process. The general dogma has been that upstream ESCRTs (0 to II) sequester receptors at the surface of endosomes and the downstream ESCRTs (III/VPS4) remodel the endosome membrane leading to the abscission and formation of receptor-containing ILVs. We now show that upstream ESCRTs not only sequester cargo, but in addition play a crucial role for the initiation of membrane shape remodeling in ILV budding. Through a combination of mathematical modeling and experimental measurements we show that upstream ESCRTs facilitate ILV budding by crowding with a high density in the membrane neck region.

Abstract: Due to the fluid nature of biological membranes, proteins are able to diffuse along the membrane surface. Additionally, several processes of vesicle formation require protein recruitment.  We discuss, on one hand, the implications of fixed membrane shapes in protein diffusion, and on the other hand, the effects of protein diffusion and recruitment in membrane shape transformation.
