  Fluid-structure interaction simulation of a falling elastic ball within a viscous fluid and its contact with the bottom

Dr. Stefan Frei

I am a lecturer (Akademischer Rat, permanent) at the

Department of Mathematics and Statistics
University of Konstanz

Universitätsstraße 10, 78457 Konstanz, Germany
Room G415


My research focuses on the
  • development and
  • numerical analysis
of finite element methods in complex applications, including
  • Interface problems and fluid-structure interactions
  • Problems posed on moving domains (ALE and Fully Eulerian approaches)
  • Fluid-structure interactions and contact
  • Computational fluid mechanics
  • Multi-scale problems in space and time
  • Biomedical applications
  • Optimisation with partial differential equations
