The prize winner Dr. Schönecker together with Prof. Schäfer, Prof. Hardt and Dr. Wagner (CST AG) after the ceremony

In 2014 the PhD Award for the best dissertation is presented again at the Graduate School of Computational Engineering. The prize money of EUR 1,000 is sponsored by the CST - Computer Simulation Technology AG, a company located in Darmstadt. With its 260 employees worldwide it develops and distributes software to simulate electromagnetic fields.

Dr. Clarissa Schönecker receives the award for her dissertation "Flow Phenomena at Microstructured Surfaces". She was supervised by Prof. Steffen Hardt, head of the chair for Nano- and Microfluidics, as well as by Prof. Cameron Tropea, head of the chair of Fluid Mechanics and Aerodynamics. With her dissertation Dr. Schönecker contributed significantly to the field of analytical and numerical computation of fluids along superhydrophobic surfaces. In context of the occurring boundary layer phenomena many physical effects have to be considered in the modeling process, which strongly differ in their magnitude scales. To obtain solutions within this complex problem area Dr. Schönecker combined rigorous mathematical methods with heuristical arguments in a creative and successful manner.

Furthermore, the research of Dr. Schönecker emphasizes a fruitful cooperation between the Graduate School CE and the Center of Smart Interfaces at TU Darmstadt.
