Diffusion of knowledge and methods towards other fields

Participant : Emmanuel Frénod.

Methods, results and more generally knowledge produced within Calvi team have been applied to environmental sciences In [22] and [50] asymptotic methods initially designed for tokamak plasmas are applied to coastal ocean waters linked phenomena.

[38] deals with the concept of confinement of paralic ecosystems. It improves an existing model in order to account for tide oscillations in any kind of geometry such as a non-rectangular lagoons with a non-flat bottom. The model, that relies on PDEs is then implemented thanks to the finite element method. Numerical results confirm the feasibility of confinement studies thanks to the introduced model.

Methods for mass transfer modeling was applied in the haulage context in [49] .
