Biography

Dr. Mihai Dupac obtained a Ph.D. in Mathematics from the West University of Timisoara, Romania, and a Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering, at Auburn University (https://www.timeshighereducation.com/world-university-rankings/auburn-university), AL, in the United States. He is currently a Senior Lecturer in Engineering Design at Bournemouth University, UK.

Research

Dr. Dupac research interests are in the area of computational modeling and simulation in engineering mechanics concerned with the development of new computational methods that arise from the discretization of computational science and engineering problems. He enjoys a computational approach dealing with the development of simulation models that describe the behaviour of complex engineering (nonlinear dynamics, mechanisms and mechanical vibrations) or bioengineering systems. This type of research related to the computational development of mathematics including the state of the art of mathematical simulations and high-performance computing (backed up by intelligent algorithms) applied to engineering science (and its theoretical physics core) gave him tremendous satisfaction and excellent opportunities to work and communicate with scientists in many other fields. As a research scholar at Space Research Institute (in US) he was working for NASA to study metallurgical properties of a levitated and heated droplet of molten metal in microgravity. More precisely the work was related to the modelling and simulation of the magneto-hydro-dynamic effects of a levitated and heated droplet using Maxwell and Navier-Stokes equations, and their effects on droplet stability.

An important part of his work was with the numerical simulation of physical processes in the field of engineering mechanics, more exactly with the study of Hamiltonian systems which under certain conditions keep unchanged momentum and energy related to system symmetry and symplectic form (special differential two-form)...
