ABOUT THE PRESENTER
Dr Chris Bailey is a Reader
(Associate Professor) in Computational Mechanics. He holds a PhD in
Mathematical Modeling and an MBA in Technology management. After completing
his PhD in 1988 he joined the Metallurgical Engineering and Materials
Science Department at Carnegie Mellon University, USA, to provide
expertise in modeling the metals casting process. In 1991 he returned
to the UK joining the Centre for Numerical Modeling and Process Analysis
at the University of Greenwich as a Reader (Associate Professor) in
Computational Mechanics. Dr Bailey has worked closely with industry
on a number of projects to develop and use computational modeling
technology for processes such casting, joining, forging, refining,
plus many others. He is a member of TMS, the Society for Industrial
and Applied Mathematics (SIAM), a Fellow of the Institute for Mathematics
and its Applications (IMA), and a member of the IEEE. Dr Bailey has
published over 80 refereed papers on computational modeling and its
application to the processing of materials and is a consultant for
a number of international companies and government organizations.
Dr. Daniel P. Cook is an Assistant
Professor of Mechanical Engineering. He received his Ph.D. in Materials
Science and Mineral Engineering from the University of California
at Berkeley in 1993. He then held post-doctoral positions with Laboratoire
MADYLAM at the University of Grenoble, France and the Centre for Numerical
Modelling and Process Analysis at the University of Greenwich, UK.
He then spent five years working in the Corporate Research and Development
division of Reynolds Metals Company before joining the faculty at
Virginia Commonwealth University where he teaches Thermodynamics,
Heat Transfer and Computational Fluid Dynamics. He is a member of
TMS and AIME.
COMPUTATIONAL MODELING TECHNIQUES AND APPLICATIONS FOR MATERIALS PROCESSING

Who Should Attend:
This course will appeal to Model Developers, Industrial Engineers,
Managers, Code Users, Graduate Students, plus others, who want to learn
more about the techniques used in computational modeling and how such
technology can benefit scientific research and the design of industrial
The aim of this course is to provide attendees with a general overview
of the techniques used in computational modeling for simulating the processing
of materials. Emphasis of the course will be to highlight best practice,
with lots of examples. Detailed mathematical theory will be kept to a
minimum, but the course notes will be supported by numerous references
for attendees to follow up. Advantages and disadvantages of each of the
modeling methods for certain applications will also be discussed. The
course will detail each of the following:
- Physics that needs to be addressed in modeling materials based processes.
- Introduction to the governing mathematical equations.
- Different methods of discretisation (FD, FE, FV, BE, others).
- Solution Methods (Direct, Iterative, Implicit, Explicit, MultiGrid,
- Current trends in modeling across the length scales (Nano-Micro-Macro).
- Current trends towards modeling interacting phenomena Multiphysics
- Real world applications and that illustrate the above. For example:
Continuous and Shape Casting; Wielding and Joining Processes; Metal
Refining; Magneto Hydrodynamics for Metal Flows.
- How to including computational modeling technology into the industrial
