Dr Markus Gross
Dr Markus Gross joined the Innovative Manufacturing Research Centre in August 2004. He received his Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering from Heriot-Watt University in Edinburgh in July 2004 and was awarded the Henry Black prize for his thesis on the numerical simulation of laser materials processing. He received his first degree (BEng in Mechanical Engineering with Computer Aided Engineering - Honours of the first class) from Heriot-Watt as well, subsequently to transferring his studies (year one and two) from the Technical University of Braunschweig, Germany.
Prior to his university education he spend two years in industry where he qualified as an industrial mechanic (production technology) in course of an apprenticeship. Next to his apprenticeship he received the qualification of industrial specialist for industry automation (IHK - the German Chamber of Industry and Commerce).
His main interest is computer simulation for engineering, with
discrete multi-physical modelling. He has several years of experience
in the use of high performance computing (HPC) and received
comprehensive training from the Edinburgh
Parallel Computing Centre
(EPCC). He will work closely with experimentalists at the IMRC and
provide computer models for the next generation of manufacturing
technology, currently developed at the IMRC.
ResourcesSubstantial computing resources are available to the group, including a 12-processor parallel system based on 1.6GHz Intel® Itanium® 2 processors equipped with 72 GByte of RAM configured as 3 four way 24GByte SMPs.
The front end is a dual Intel® Xeon™ processor 3GHz EM64T machine with 2GByte memory and dual head graphics running SuSE Linux 9.1 professional.
