Welcome to a new semester with LIGHTer PhD Network Seminars!
The first seminar for the semester takes place on 25 August at 14:00 - 15:00 with the following participants:

Prof. Anna-Lena Ljung, Luleå University of Technology, Computational fluid dynamics in manufacturing processes
CFD provide a valuable tool for development of manufacturing processes for lightweight materials. Injection molding and compression molding are two examples of such processes.  Quality and trust in modelling is however essential as complex rheology, thermodynamics, solidification, fibre inclusion etc. put high demands on the computational accuracy and efficiency. Questions therefore arise regarding e.g. the required level of detail in the simulations.

David Carlstedt, Chalmers, Computational Modelling of Structural Batteries
A viable solution to improve the efficiency of future electric vehicles and devices is to utilize multifunctional materials. One such material is the structural batteries, a material which has the ability to store electrical energy (i.e. work as a battery) and carry mechanical loads, simultaneously. In this presentation, a recently developed computational modelling framework for evaluating the combined electro-chemo-mechanical performance of structural batteries is presented. Moreover, numerical predictions are compared with experimental data and modelling assumptions and future prospects are be discussed.
