Computational Multiscale Transport Phenomena (Toschi)

Organisation profile

Introduction / mission

We study how things flow. From simple fluids, with their beautiful turbulent patterns, to complex fluids with their stick-slip dynamics and avalanches, to active matter with its complex self-organizing patterns.

Organisation profile

Our interest focuses on the emerging complexity in challenging multi-scale problems at the crossroad between statistical physics, fluid mechanics, soft condensed matter and biophysics. How do small-scale interactions and forces lead to large-scale complexity and chaos? How to analytically and numerically model complex flow problems? We employ experimental, numerical and theoretical methods to investigate amongst others fluid dynamics turbulence; lagrangian turbulence; thermal convection; complex fluids; soft condensed matter; active matter; crowd dynamics; scientific computing and Lattice Boltzmann methods.  
Several of the topics that we investigate are strongly multidisciplinary and involve pushing the boundaries of physics across different disciplines. We pursue the innovation of numerical methods and develop state-of-the-art large-scale, massively parallel, numerical codes. Our research is embedded in the 4TU Centre of Excellence for Multiscale Phenomena, the JMBC Burgerscentrum for fluid dynamics, and the Eindhoven Multiscale Institute.

UN Sustainable Development Goals

In 2015, UN member states agreed to 17 global Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) to end poverty, protect the planet and ensure prosperity for all. Our work contributes towards the following SDG(s):

  • SDG 3 - Good Health and Well-being
  • SDG 7 - Affordable and Clean Energy
  • SDG 13 - Climate Action
