Recent funded projects:

Software (open source):

  • TIFF - 2D full-f full-k gyrofluid (Hasegawa-Waktani and interchange driven) turbulence code (Gitlab@UIBK)
  • GHW1  -  2D delta-f gyrofluid Hasegawa-Wakatani turbulence code (Gitlab@UIBK)

  • VOR2   -  2D incompressible Navier-Stokes code in vorticity-streamfunction form - for teaching purposes, such as the course "Many-body theory: fluid dynamics" (Gitlab@UIBK, access with UIBK login)

  • FELTOR  -  Numerical methods for SOL blob and turbulence simulations (GitHub; main authors: Wiesenberger, Held)
