Modeling viscoelastic free surface and interfacial flows, with applications to the deformation of droplets and blood cells
This thesis models viscoelastic free surface and interfacial flows. Capillarity and viscoelasticity are important in many interesting problems, e.g. the deformation of droplets and blood cells, coating flows of polymer ...
Stabilized finite element solution of optimal control problems in computational fluid dynamics
This thesis discusses the solution of optimal flow control problems, with an emphasis on solving optimal design problems involving blood as the fluid. The discretization of the governing equations of fluid flow is accomplished ...
