Cartesian grid, penalization method, complex flow. The P.I. is Angelo Iollo. See http://www.math.u-bordeaux1.fr/CARPEINTER/


Participants : Charles-Henri Bruneau, Yong Liang Xiang.

The formation and dynamics of long lived coherent structures in atmospheric flows can be mimicked by soap film experiments on an hemisphere heated at the equator. The aim of this work is to simulate such flows and to compare both to the experiments and to the known data of various tornados.


Participants : Thierry Colin, Olivier Saut, Clair Poignard.

The members T.Colin, C.Poignard and O.Saut are involved in the consortium INTCELL directed by P.LEVEQUE (XLIM), and which begun in December 2010. This mutlidisciplinary project, composed of four partners (XLIM laboratory, Vectorology and Anticancer therapies team at the IGR, EDAM and MC2) aims at studying the electropermeabilization by nanopulses at the subcellular level. The goal is to develop new electrical devices and accurate models to understand the electropermeabilization of the cytoplasm constituents such as the nuclear envelop or the mitochondrial membrane, based on the experiments and on the simulations of molecular dynamics.

Part of the team (M.Colin, T.Colin, A.Iollo, C.Poignard, O.Saut and L. Weynans) are involved in the consortium MEMOVE coordinanted by MC2 (coordinator C. Poignard), and which begins at the begining of 2012. This consortium is composed of four partners (the Vectorology and Anticancer therapies team at the IGR, the bioengineering laboratory AMPERE of Lyon and the Department of mathematics of Versailles). It aims at developing electropermeabilization models from the cell scale to the tissue scale. This project focuses on quite long pulses (from micro- to milli-pulses) compared with the ANR consortium INTCELL that has begun in december 2010. The main goal is to provide multi-scale modelling of "classical" eletroporation, in order to obtain numerical tools that can help from one side the biologists to understand the electropermeabilization process when "non standard" pulses are applied, and from the other side it eventually aims at providing tools for the physicians to optimize the pulse delivering when the electrochemotherapy is used.

PEPS CaRaMel3d

  • Program: PEPS Idex-CNRS

  • Project acronym: CaRaMel3d

  • Project title: Calibration et Recalage sur l'Imagerie Médicale

  • Duration: 07/2012-07/2013

  • Coordinator: Olivier Saut

  • Other partners: Institut Bergonié, CHU Pellegrin (Bordeaux),

French-German cooperative consortium SmartOnline

Participants : Angelo Iollo, Iraj Mortazavi.

  • Program: ANR & BMBF

  • Project acronym: SmartOnline

  • Project title: Online security management toolkit for water distribution networks.

  • Duration: 04/2012-04/2015

  • Coordinator: Olivier Piller (IRSTEA)

  • Other partners: Irstea, Veolia, ENGES, CU Strasbourg, BW Berlin, TZW Dresden, 3S Consult, Franhoefer.

  • Abstract: The main objective of the project SMaRT-OnlineWDN is the development of an online security management toolkit for water distribution networks that is based on sensor measurements of water quality as well as water quantity. Its field of application ranges from detection of deliberate contamination, including source identification and decision support for effective countermeasures, to improved operation and control of a WDN under normal and abnormal conditions (dual benefit).
