'Kratos: an Open Source framework for Multiphysics simulations'

Abstract: Kratos is as a framework for parallel multi-physics program development.

Its most important objectives are flexibility, extensibility, large scale computation and scalability, while remaining as friendly as possible with the user.

In this talk, the main characteristics of the framework will be introduced, explaining the different layers of complexity the user can use within Kratos. Finally, examples of the different "Kratos Applications" will be presented, showing the diversity of the software as of today.

Lecturer: Pablo Agustín Becker is an aeronautical engineer by the University of Córdoba (Argentina) and holds a PhD in Structural Analysis by UPC-BarcelonaTech. As a researcher, his work is centered in the Particle Finite Element Method (PFEM) applied to fluid-structure interaction phenomena. He is a member of the development team of the open-source finite element framework Kratos Multiphysics. He is currently working on applying the PFEM method to fixed mesh problems and multiphase flows with interfaces.
