Vincent Legat


Vincent Legat is reseacher and professor in Applied Mathematics and Mechanics at the Université Catholique de Louvain. His research field is computational physics applied to materials engineering, fluid mechanics, oceanography and integrated modeling of natural and anthropogenic effects. He is member of the TIMOTHY and the SLIM project (Second-generation Louvain-la-Neuve Ice-ocean Model). He is one of the researchers who did the simulation of Honshu tsunami propagation across the Pacific that hit Japan on March 2011. During ResearchTalks Vol.1, he presented with Emmanuel Hanert their results (title: “Simulation numérique de tsunami et de l’océan avec le modèle SLIM”). The goal was to demonstrate that such a simulation would allow to set up an alert system to predict the second phase of a tsunami, in this case, its intensity and direction.
