    Interviews

    Sebastian Peetz
    How would you describe your role in the AMST project?
    I have worked on this project as a Secondee, and more precisely as an Early-Stage-Researcher (ESR) during about a year.
    What did you focus on in this project? What did you do exactly?
    I was in charge of several activities:
    • The implementation of a new input and output format in Diffpack consistent with DPM.
    • Adding benefits of high compressible data-format HDF5 and easy useable overlay format XDMF.
    • Graphic card visualization methods for large particle sets with different shapes.
    • Seminar on numerically solving partial differential equations with Diffpack and on Diffpack programming.
    • Fast 3D postprocessing in ParaView by using GPU rendering technics.
    What is your (current) background in the research’s field?
    My backgrounds are: Research and Development (R&D), FEM development and Mathematical Optimization.
    Florian Hoffmann
    How would you describe your role in the AMST project?
    I was Senior Research Fellow during two years.
    What did you focus on in this project? What did you do exactly?
    I took care of the design, the development and the maintenance of the Graphical User Interface. I was also in charge of the support development of CFD-DEM solver technology.
    What is your (current) background in the research’s field?
    While completing my PhD degree, I developed numerical models for heterogeneous reactions in packed beds using CFD and DEM
