Richard Marchand

Richard Marchand’s research has produced a tool called PTetra to simulate low-orbit satellite interactions with plasma. Plasma, which can be found around spacecraft, is the fourth possible state of matter (after solids, liquids and gases). Our understanding of how it will interact with surrounding satellites is crucial in preventing the...

Christopher Beaumont

Christopher Beaumont has developed a numerical model called DOUAR, which addresses three-dimensional flow problems from the area of the earth’s crust to its mantle. This model, available online, enables researchers to better understand the distribution of natural resources such as oil and gas deposits. http://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0031920108000940 [separator size=”small” center=”true” empty=”false” opaque=”false”...
