The registration to this course will open in December. Please, bring your own laptop. All the PATC courses at BSC are free of charge.

Course convener: Mariano Vazquez

Objectives:The objetive of this course is to give a panorama on the use of hpc-based computational mechanics in Engineering and Environment through the projects BSC are carrying on. This panorama includes the basics of what is behind the main tools: computational mechanics and parallelization.

Learning outcomes:The students who finish this course will be able to take active part in such projects both in academia or industry.
