  1. IMA 2013 UQ: DFT-based Thermal Properties: Three Levels of Error Management

    02 Apr 2014 | Online Presentations | Contributor(s): Kurt Lejaeghere

    It is often computationally expensive to predict finite-temperature properties of a crystal from density-functional theory (DFT). The temperature-dependent thermal expansion coefficient α, for example, is calculated from the phonon spectrum, and the melting temperature Tm can only be obtained...

  2. IMA 2013 UQ: Foam Property Prediction from Process Modeling

    28 May 2014 | Online Presentations

    We are developing computational models to elucidate the injection, expansion, and dynamic filling process for polyurethane foam such as PMDI. The polyurethane is a chemically blown foam, where carbon dioxide is produced via reaction of water, the blowing agent, and isocyanate. In a competing...

  3. IMA 2013 UQ: Probabilistic Hazard Mapping and Uncertainty Quantification Based on Granular Flow Simulations

    02 Apr 2014 | Online Presentations | Contributor(s): Elaine Spiller

    PDE models of granular flows are invaluable tools for developing probabilistic hazards maps for volcanic landslides, but they are far from perfect. Epistemic uncertainty -- uncertainty due to a lack of model refinement -- arises through assumptions made in physical models, numerical...

  4. IMA 2013 UQ: Prediction Interval Construction for Smart Material Systems in the Presence of Model Discrepancy

    01 Apr 2014 | Online Presentations | Contributor(s): Ralph Smith

    In this presentation, we will discuss issues pertaining to the construction of prediction intervals in the presence of model biases or discrepancies. We will illustrate this in the context of models for smart material systems but the issues are relevant for a range of physical and biological...

  6. Mathematics of Ions in Channels and Solutions: Stochastic Derivations, Direct, Variational and Inverse Solutions that fit Data

    05 Feb 2014 | Online Presentations | Contributor(s): Bob Eisenberg

    Literally thousands of biologists study the properties of channels in experiments every day. My collaborators and I have shown how the relevant equations can be derived (almost) from stochastic differential equations, and how they can be solved in inverse, variational, and direct problems using...

  10. Efficiency Enhancement for Nanoelectronic Transport Simulations

    02 Feb 2014 | Papers | Contributor(s): Jun Huang

    PhD thesis of Jun HuangContinual technology innovations make it possible to fabricate electronic devices on the order of 10nm. In this nanoscale regime, quantum physics becomes critically important, like energy quantization effects of the narrow channel and the leakage currents due to tunneling....

    04 Feb 2014 | Online Presentations | Contributor(s): Nick Clay

    In vitro three dimensional (3D) tumor models are important tools for understanding cancer progression and evaluating new cancer treatments on a benchtop scale.  Countless in vivo studies have demonstrated that cancer malignancy is based on extracellular matrix (ECM) remodeling. However, few...

  18. [Illinois] Peptide Release from the Cells of the Dorsal Root Ganglion upon Application of Tensile Strain

    04 Feb 2014 | Online Presentations | Contributor(s): Emily Tillmaand

    Morphological and electrophysiological studies have shown that neurons respond to specific mechanical environments. However, studies linking specific neuropeptide release based on changes in the mechanical environment are lacking. To further study the effect of mechanical stress on the cells of...
