Zhujun HUANG


This module prepares for simulating mechanical problems (solid and fluid medium proreux saturated) on which the body geometry which may be complex and the physical properties can be spatially varied.
It includes three parts: (i) finite element methods (ii) Finite-volume (iii) introduction of a code of scientific calculations.

Proposal code: Fluent or OpenFoam for REA option and Plaxis or Abaqus for GHO option.
