Marco Delchini (MS+PhD). Marco worked on artificial viscosity methods for fluid flows in various setting: single phase, two phases (using a 7-equation model with Pliq /= Pgas), and coupled radiation hydrodynamics. Artificial viscosity techniques aim at combatting non physical oscillations observed in numerical simulations. These spurious oscillations in the numerical solution are caused by the methods’ inability to reproduce the true entropy production. Marco’s work has led to 5 journal publications.
Marco now works at ORNL.
