- On the need for uncertainty quantification in hyperbolic PDE applications at Sandia National Laboratories
Guglielmo Scovazzi (Sandia National Laboratories)
A number of applications of interest at Sandia National Laboratories involve hyperbolic PDEs, and ultimately require uncertainty quantification methods. I will describe in general the nature of these applications and focus in particular on algorithms for shock hydrodynamics and transient dynamics problems based on tetrahedral finite elements. I will also be discussing perspectives on using this computational framework for complex-geometry fluid-structure interaction problems, in combination with mesh adaptation, optimization, and uncertainty quantification.
