An internship position for PhD students and Post-docs is open at BCAM - Basque Center for Applied Mathematics.
Front Propagation Methods with Applications in Wildland Fire Simulation
The aim is to implement front propagation methods, for example the level set method, and an existing model for wildland fire. Implementation should be carried out in the open source FEniCS (fenicsproject.org) software framework for automated solution of partial differential equations based on the finite element method. The candidate should compare the model, methods and implementation against experimental and numerical reference data. The proposed model can include atmospheric and fire-induced turbulence, overcoming of fire break lines such as roads and “fire spotting”, where sparks or embers are carried by convection to start a new fire zone. The FEniCS software framework allows a high abstraction level with input of equations and finite element methods in mathematical notation and automatic generation of low-level source code with good scaling on supercomputers.
