V. Alexiades - UTK
Topics / Projects I have worked on
( often in collaboration with chemists, geoscientists,
engineers, physicists, ..., at Oak Ridge National Laboratory and elsewhere )
Early work
- singular parabolic PDEs (existence-uniqueness-potentials)
- singular perturbations
- 4th order elliptic boundary value problems
- almost periodic solutions of integrodifferential delay equations
Phase-change modeling
- Pure materials:
- Stefan-type problems
- hyperbolic Stefan problems
- laser-induced melting
- supercooling and nucleation
- void formation, shrinkage effects
- latent heat energy storage
- for power system for space station
- for oxygen production on the moon
- convection in the melt (
benchmark solutions for Tin and Gallium melting)
- Binary alloys / mixtures:
- Laser ablation
Cellular Physiology / Biophysics
Assorted other
- stress-assisted diffusion
- free energy minimization for fluid interfaces
- heat pumps
- inverse problems in geophysics (airborne EM surveying)
- super-time-stepping acceleration of explicit schemes
- molecular dynamics computations - time stepping
