Complex Fluids Workshop

Simulating complex fluids such as colloidal suspensions or blood flows is particularly challenging, as they possess some kind of elastic microstructure, characterized by a microscopic length scale as well as other physiognomies: fluid-structure interactions, large deformations, strong nonlinearities, non-local interactions, evolving interfaces and multiple length and time scales with, typically, no clear scale separation. Scientific Computing assistant professor Bryan Quaife, along with George Biros from the University of Texas organized a workshop to bring together experts from diverse areas and initiate advances in the simulation capabilities and our ultimate understanding of complex fluids.

Slice recipient of Rohlf Medal for Excellence

Over the course of three decades Dennis E. Slice, Professor of Scientific Computing at Florida State University (Tallahassee), has contributed in many crucial ways to the development, dissemination and innovative application of today's best morphometric methods. His early articles and reviews helped teach biologists about Procrustes analysis and its differences from other approaches beginning well before his actual doctorate was awarded.
