Featured projects




My name is Johan Jansson, I’m Associate Professor at Numerical Methods/Computational Science and Technology Numerical Methods/Computational Science and Technology at KTH, and leading the CFD Computational Technology research line at the Basque Center for Applied Mathematics (BCAM).

We have the aim of developing automated and adaptive finite element methods and the open source FEniCS and FEniCS-HPC software framework for solving partial differential equations based on FEM with good scaling on massively parallel computers. A particular focus in the Unicorn component of FEniCS is on turbulent flow and fluid-structure interaction, and I also develop applications in aerodynamics and biomechanics.
