Industrial Projects

1.PI of the project with Re.Al. Service P.I.E. "Development of Decision Support System for the manage- ment of environmental emergencies". The aim of the project is to develop a DDS (Decision Support Sys- tem) for the management of environmental emergencies: in this context statistical analysis of historical

data are carried out and prediction algorithm are going to be developed. Moreover the DSS will include also simplified models for the simulation of advection-diusion of pollutant into the ground.

2.PI of the project with GE-Nuovo Pignone: Computation of eigenfrequencies of blades of steam turbines. The aim of the project is the development of a parallel software for the computation of the eigenfre- quencies of a cascade of blades starting from the geometry of the blades and of the cascade.

3.PI of the project with ENI E&P Division: Mathematical and Numerical model of post-glacial rebound". The Glacial-Isostatic-Adjustment phenomenon describes the processes that tend to restore an equilib-

rium state on the Earth surface when an ice-load is present. These processes are evident in many areas of the Earth surface and they have been studied for dierent purposes e.g. define the ice extension and the sea-level during various geological periods and for assessing the rheological properties of the Earth. The above mentioned phenomenon is very important in petroleum engineering. This project aims at the development of a prototype software for the simulation of the GIA.

4.PI of the project with ENI E&P Division: Mathematical and Numerical modeling of plate tectonics. The project aimed at the development of new mathematical and numerical models for the simulation of plate tectonics. The first mathematical model that has been developed is a based on the so-called fluid approximation in which the dynamics of the rocks over long time scale can be approximated us- ing the Stokes system with temperature dependent viscosity (visco-plastic model); a new mixed formu-

lation for the Stokes problem along with a suitable preconditioning technique have been developed in order to solve eciently the problem at hand. A parallel code based on Deal.II library has been imple- mented. A multiscale model for the simulation of oceanic rift has also been developed. The second step

of the project was related to the study of the continental margins in which the fluid approximation is no longer valid hence elastic eects have to be included. In this sense a new family of variational time integrators for the solution of the elasticity problem has been developed, analyzed and implemented into an Octave package; moreover a preliminary GPU implementation has been realized.

5.PI of the project with COMES: Development of optimization algorithm for the production of opti- cal lenses. The project aimed at the development of ecient and optimized algorithm to design toric lenses. In this context a new prototype software has been developed; the algorithm has been imple- mented into NC (Numeric Control) machine to produce real lenses.

6.PI of the project with filippi Lido Srl: Development of algorithm for motion capture and application to acquisition of motion of athletes". During the project computer vision algorithms have been used for developing a prototype software able to automatically capture the motion of some markers placed on the body of the athletes using simple videos as input.

7.Co-PI of the project with filippi Boats: "Modeling of the dynamics of rowing boats". The project aim at the development of a complete model for the simulation of the dynamics of a rowing boat. In par-

ticular during the project a detailed dynamical system describing the dynamics of the rowers has been developed. This model has been coupled to dierent CFD solver (commercial and in-house) for the sim- ulation of the fluid-structure interaction between the boat and the water. The code has been extensively tested and verified using experimental data.

8.Collaboration to the project with Ametek-TaylorHobson: "Development of algorithms and software for cam profile analysis". In this project a tool for cam profiles analysis has been developed: the tool starting from a set of measured point reconstructs the cam profile and analyzes the error with re- spect to a nominal shape. More information (in italian) on the project can be found at this link.

9.Collaboration to the the project with ENI E&P Division: "Mathematical and Numerical modeling of salt tectonics". Various types of oil traps have been found to be associated with salt domes in subsurface geology. In this project the diapiric rise of light salt layers through a denser overburden has been modeled assuming that, in a geological time scale, salt and rocks layers behave like Newtonian fluids. A Lagrangian approach has been adopted to track the interface between layers, within the framework of a finite element space discretization. An accurate description of large deformations due to salt movement has been achieved using a grid adaptation technique based on geometrical refinement.

10.Collaboration to the project with ENEL Hydraulic and Structural Division: "Development of a software for the simulation of 3D water flows". In this project the mathematical and numerical model developed in [J2] and [J1] has been implemented into a parallel code.

Research activities

Free surface flow

In [J2] and [J1] a new finite element method for the solution of the hydrostatic 3D Shallow water equations has been proposed. The method has been also ported to parallel architectures using MPI and the results of the parallelizzation along with some applications to real cases are reported in [J3]. In order to consider a wider range of applications the hydrostatic approximation has to be removed: in [J7] a review of the math- ematical models for free surface flow is reported along with a proposal for the development of a non hydro- static free surface model. An ecient method for the solution of the non hydrostatic model is reported in [J4] where a suitable algebraic factorization procedure is introduced: essentially the idea is to generalize to the 3D non hydrostatic free surface equations the algebraic Chorin-Temam and the Yosida methods. The inclusion of a k turbulence model has been considered in [J15], [P8] and [P4].

Multiscale and multiphysics modeling

In the context of hydraulics and hydrology there are many phenomena requiring a multiphysics or a multi- scale approach to be properly described or solved. In particular the study has been focused on two issues: the surface and groundwater coupling and the multiscale modelling of free surface flow. It must be noticed that surface water and groundwater are not separate and independent and hence, in order to simulate real-world situations (such as the relation between a lake and an aquifer), a proper multiphysics model has to be developed. In this sense in [J5] and [J6] a coupling strategy between the 3D Shallow water (hydrostatic or not) and the Darcy equation has been proposed and analyzed. The multiscale modeling of free surface flow has been considered in [J9] and [J10]: in these papers a suitable set of boundary conditions and a coupling algorithm have been developed in order to couple 1D and 2D shallow water models; moreover in [J11] a goal-oriented adaptive method for dynamic coupling of 1D and 2D models has been studied. A further coupling strategy based on control theory has been proposed in [P7] and [BC3]. In [P12], [P13], [P14] and [P15] a novel approach based on the Immersed Boundary Method has been proposed for the representation of 1D features in 2D shallow water models: the method has been widely tested and it is implemented in the DSS-WISE model currently used by several federal and state agencies in USA (for more information about the project see this link). In [J13] a rigorous asymptotic analysis has been carried out to derive 1D averaged section model for open channel flow starting from the 3D free surface Navier-Stokes equations: this research is the first step for the development of a robust and mathematically sound coupling between 1D and 3D free surface model.

Dynamics of floating bodies

In [J12] a fluid structure algorithm has been developed to describe the dynamics of floating objects: in particular the algorithm has been applied to boat dynamics. The same idea has been exploited in [J20] and [BC4]: a new algorithm based on the Uzawa method and on the 3D Shallow water model developed in [J2] has been proposed for the simulation of general floating objects. In [J14] the previous mentioned fluid-structure algorithm has been coupled with a dynamical system for the simulation of the dynamics of rowing boats account- ing for the motion of the rowers.

Interpolation and reconstruction methods

In [J17] and [BC2] a new method based on Radial Basis Function for the interpolation of vector fields has been introduced and studied. The method has been efficiently applied for the reconstruction of velocity vec- tor field in the context of free surface Navier-Stokes code based on a Lagrange-Galerkin method. In [J16] and [J21] a particular family of integral splines has been introduced and used for the reconstruction of curves (in 2D and in 3D) and surfaces starting from a cloud of points; industrial applications of this method are re- ported in [P3], [P5] and [P11].

Computational geodynamics

In [J19] a 2D mathematical and numerical model for the simulation of oceanic rift is presented: the model is essentially a Stokes system with a non-Newtonian rheology where the viscosity is a complex nonlinear function of the temperature. Some 2D parallel (using MPI) numerical simulations for temperature-dependent mantle viscosity flow field beneath lithospheric plates that thicken with age have been carried out, evaluating tectonic evolution at mid-ocean ridges (MORs), useful to investigate the geometry of mantle upwelling and lithospheric thickness. The results have given new insights about the asymmetrical structures observed be- neath MORs. This is an ongoing research in collaboration with the Department of Geology of Sapienza Uni- versity in Rome and with Eni.
