Innovative topology optimization techniques for the design of 3D-printable structures and materials

In collaboration with Thales Alenia Space Italia, MOX has developed a new technology based on advanced mathematical algorithms for the topology optimization of mechanical components, in a finite element setting. The resulting configurations are characterized by lightness and high structural performances, while exhibiting free-form features particularly suited for 3D printing […]

High-order hybrid Computational Aero-Acoustics

  In the framework of a joint PhD between the Department of Mechanical Engineering (DMEC) and the Department of Mathematics (DMAT), Alberto Artoni is developing a high-order hybrid Computational Aero-Acoustics simulation tool coupling the spectral element solver SPEED and the OpenFOAM CFD library. The activity involves a multi-disciplinary research group […]

Reduced models for the simulation of continuous mixing

Since 2016, MOX is collaborating with a leading tire manufacturing company for the development of reduced model for the analysis and prediction of the mixing process in continuous mixing facilities. A new project has been defined to further implement the numerical model and perform a complete assessment of the approach […]

Traspiration conditions for FSI simulation of packaging

Based on the numerical tools developed in past projects carried on in collaboration with MOXOFF in the framework of a long lasting collaboration with Tetra Pak Packaging Solutions, a new research activity has been started focusing on the adoption of transpiration boundary condition for fluid-structure interaction simulations of the forming and filling process […]

ESCAPE-2 Project

MOX is participating in the ESCAPE-2 FET H2020 project for the development of exascale demonstrators for numerical weather prediction. The tasks involve the development of semi-implicit DG discretizations for atmospheric modelling and fault tolerant implementations of advanced iterative solvers. This project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and […]
