On the 19th February 2020, Dr Andrew Duff, Project Scientist, STFC Daresbury Laboratory, gave a seminar titled “Application of Computational Methods for Modelling of Scientific and Technological Processes at STFC” – invited by Dr. Simon Middleburgh.
Andrew introduced the Science and Technology Facilities Council (STFC), and various centres that it is made up of. His talk introduced some of the computational challenges that are being addressed by researchers at STFC including understanding radiation effects in materials, modelling materials at ultra-high temperatures and other new techniques being used in the energy, aerospace and automotive industries.
A highlight was the subsequent workshop where Andrew introduced the methods used to model complex systems at high temperatures (using the TU-TILD methodology). We are grateful for Andrew’s time spent at Bangor University and look forward to greeting him back in the near future where he will be speaking at the “Modelling in Nuclear Science and Engineering Seminar” on 28th and 29th May 2020.
