Simulating biological interfaces
Douwe Bosma

Supervisors TU Delft: Deepesh Toshniwal and Hugo Verhelst

start of the project: February 2021

The Master project has been finished in June 2022 by the completion of the Masters Thesis and a final has been given.

Summary of the master project:
The ability to computationally solve partial differential equations on surfaces is central to many applications; e.g., numerical weather prediction. This study is focused on physically accurate simulations of biological fluidic surfaces such as lipid bilayers. These can be thought of as the envelopes for eukaryotic cell contents and they are versatile structures that behave as in-plane viscous fluids and out-of-plane solids. A finite element framework for studying these membranes will be developed as part of this project.
