From 5th to 8th of August the world's greatest conference on mathematical optimization (ICCOPT2019) took place at the Technical University of Berlin. On invitation by Dr. Carmen Gräßle (MPI Magdeburg, left) and Tobias Keil (WIAS) Henning Bonart gave a talk in the session Optimal Control of Phase Field Models. Here, he presented our recent joint work with Dr. Christian Kahle (TU München, right) on the Active and Passive Control of Droplets through Optimal Contact Angle Distributions.

From April to June 2019 Henning Bonart visited Prof. Youssef Marzouk (right) and the Uncertainty Quantification Group at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Cambridge, USA. At MIT Henning Bonart was part of the Aerospace Computational Design Laboratory and affiliated with the Center for Computational Engineering. In this collaboration our work on the simulation and optimization of wetting droplets is combined with modern statistical methods to estimate multiphase parameters from simple experiments in a Bayesian setting. On invitation, Henning Bonart presented an overview of our work on Simulation and Optimal Control of Sliding Droplets on Surfaces with Topographic Structures and Variable Wettability in the lab's seminar. He successfully applied for a scholarship by the DAAD and was co-funded by the TU Berlin and the SFB/Transregio 63 InPrompt.

On the 7th of August 2019 Mr Dr.-Ing. Sven Kunkel successfully defended his doctoral thesis. In his PhD thesis, he experimentally investigated the phase change behaviour of an eutectic mixture (Phase Change Material - PCM) in a thermal storage with direct contact between heating liquid an PCM. His contribution to understanding the occurring phenomena is a valuable advance in the scope of the energy revolution. The d|b|t|a sincerely congratulates and wishes all the best for his future.

From 22nd to 23rd of July the annual group retreat of d|b|t|a and our summer event took place. The whole group met at the Youth Hostel Ravensbrück and together we discussed the orientation and many different current topics. The evening was followed by a barbecue and cool drinks. We were very lucky that the next day gave us sunny wheather which was perfect for our draisine and swimming trip.

From 14th to 18th of July 2019 the d|b|t|a was represented at FOCAPD in Copper Mountain, Colorado (USA) with three posters. Joris Weigert presented his work concerning the optimization under uncertainties by means of data-driven models, Christian Hoffmann showed his concept for the integration of design and operation using an economic NMPC and Erik Esche presented a comparison between Chance-Constrained Optimization and Two-Stage Stochastic Programming for design problems.

The d|b|t|a sincerely congratulates Mr Dr.-Ing. Reinhard Lohmeier on his successful defence of his doctoral thesis on the 15th of July 2019. Mr Lohmeier dealt with the utilization of various binding agents in the briquetting of fine abraded hard coal particles for application in the COREX process. (Title of the work: "Beitrag zur Bindemittelbrikettierung von Steinkohlenabrieb für dessen Einsatz im COREX®-Einschmelzvergaser") We wish continuous success!
