The MITACS/Ballard Collaborative Project: Rivulets and Condensation Front
Modelling
The Math Modelling and Scientific Computation (MMSC) group
of the MITACS NCE has an ongoing research collaboration
with Ballard Powersystems, the world leader in hydrogen fuel cell
design. This is one of several new initiatives in Western Canada
in "Industrial Mathematics". I will outline our experience with
industrial mathematics in general and then discuss two scientific
problems in particular: rivulet flow (an MSc thesis problem)
and condensation front modelling (a bigger problem involving
a number of people). Neither of these problems are complete and
it is my hope to attract interest in collaboration on these and
other problems the group is working on.
