Deadline for registration: 15 days before the starting date of each training
Duration : 1 day / (6 hours)



This lecture aims at providing the audience with an additional knowledge of methods based on Discrete Velocity Boltzmann Equations, with a particular emphasis on Lattice-Boltzmann Methods. Key elements of discretization and time integration will be discussed, along with classical CFD topics such as boundary conditions, turbulence modeling, accounting for compressibility effects, acoustic wave propagation. Illustration of the methods on academic and industrial flow configurations will be shown.

Target participants

PhD students, engineers, researchers


Basic knowledge in Lattice Boltzmann Methods

Basic knowledge in fluid mechanics and computational methods

CECI Contribution to CNRS’ “Petit Illustré” on Complex Systems (CNRS Edition)

ROGEL |  12 October 2017

CECI (Cerfacs, CNRS) and IMFT are both working on numerical modelling of the processes causing river flooding and their uncertainties. A common contribution on this subject, signed by Sophie Ricci and Hélène Roux, appears in Vol. 34 of the "Petit Illustré" collection, edited by CNRS.Read more

CERFACS was present at the European Researcher Night 2017 at Toulouse

thual |  1 October 2017

"Can we get an engine, an airplane or the entire Earth into a computer?". Such was the catchy title of the CERFACS stand  Friday September 29th, for the "European Research Night" whose theme was "Impossible". A hundred people at the "Quai des Savoirs" in Toulouse took a close interest in the...Read more
