Pietro Lenarda

I am currently working at  IMT Lucca in the multiscale analysis of materials unit research (MUSAM) http://musam.imtlucca.it/. My research topics are:

  • Numerical splitting methods for simulation of coupled phenomena in multiphysics
  • Generalized thermo-diffusion
  • Fractional calculus in thermo-viscoelasticity
  • Advection-reaction-diffusion bioconvective systems in viscous fluids
  • Reaction-diffusion systems

My main fields are: Computational methods in nonlinear mechanics, Finite element method.
