Presenter: Dr Vivien Challis

In this talk I'll take you on a tour of our computational approach for designing multiscale porous materials, with application to femoral bone implants. Along the way we'll talk about the implant design problem, microstructure design, GPU computing, multiscale structural optimisation, resulting designs and rapid manufacture. This is joint work with Andrew Cramer and Tony Roberts

About Applied and computational maths seminars

Our seminars bring together UQ's applied and computational mathematics communities.

UQ and invited scientists deliver the presentations, which are informal and promote discussion.

We welcome suggestions for speakers and topics from staff, students and visitors, and encourage students to share their work.

Our seminars are usually held on Thursdays from 3pm to 4pm.

To suggest a topic or speaker, and for more information, contact Dr Dietmar Oelz or Dr Cecilia Gonzalez Tokman.
