Modeling and Simulation Group

The modeling and simulation group focuses on projects related to the mathematical modeling, computer simulation and systems analysis of processes mainly from the fields of application covered by the research units at Hochschule Geisenheim University. It received international attention based on English, Chinese and German book publications on mathematical modeling and computer simulation. Between 2008 and 2016, 4 Ph.D. students performed beverage technological research projects based on an overall third party funding of about 500.000 € (bottle cleaning and bottle emptying processes, wine fermentation, mechanical homogenization of large tanks). All work uses state-of-the-art differential equation (e.g., ODE's, PDE's, PDE-constrained optimization, 3d computer simulations) and statistical methods (e.g., neural network, fuzzy, boosting, decision tree, random forest, classification, design of experiments, six sigma, PCA, MCA, big data) and is exclusively based on scientific open source software that can be used free of charge (e.g., OpenFOAM, Salome, ParaView, R, Maxima). The modeling and simulation group develops Gm.Linux („Geisenheim-Linux“), a scientific Linux operating system that provides comprehensive pre-installed and pre-configured software for scientific or economical applications. Based on Gm.Linux, all project results and simulation software can be used e.g. by industrial project partners with no installation effort in virtualized operation mode on pre-existing computer hardware. Our gallery shows some example results, videos etc.
