Manuel Reveron from UiB has visited Helmut-Schmidt-Universität (Hamburg, Germany) this spring. He was visiting a research group led by Prof. Markus Bause. They have experience in space-time discretization and are now trying to apply it in porous media problems. Manuel’s group has implemented a non-linear diffusion equation using space time discretization.
Togheter with Dr.ing Uwe Köcher and M.Sc. Marius Bruchhause variational time discretization for mixed finite element methods has been discussed. Köcher shared his code for Biot's toolbox with Manuel and further explained how to use it. His research group have a high proficiency in a C++ library Deal II, that provides well documented tools to build finite element codes for a broad variety of PDEs, from laptops to supercomputers.
Manuel also had the opportunity to give a talk about his work during his visit: «Convergence of iterative coupling for non-linear Biot's model». The group provided him with interesting feedback to further improve his PhD work.
