Abstract

Large Eddy Simulation (LES) needs accurate schemes with enhanced spectral properties (low dissipation and low dispersion). Even if standard high order schemes (WENO, compact…) respect this need for structured grids, the situation is less clear for complex geometries, where unstructured grids are required.
The discontinuous spectral methods were introduced in order to circumventthe $raubacks of standard methods on unstructured grids. In this case, any conservative quantity is defined as a local polynomial in a control volume through its definition in several degrees of freedom per cell.
During this training, we will introduce these approaches defines as spectral discontinuous. After a bibliographic review, attention is paid on applications performed with the in-house solver JAGUAR developed at CERFACS and based on a discontinuous spectral formalism.

Target participants

This training session is dedicated to engineers, physicists, computer scientists and numerical analysts who wish to learn these methods.

Prerequisites

Basic knowledge in standard discretization techniques (finite volume, finite difference and finite element).

This study focuses on Hall-effect thrusters, which were first invented in the 1960s. Although such systems have been extensively studied, the detailed physics of the magnetized plasmas in these thrusters is very complex and several plasma processes that have direct influence on the thruster...Read more
