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 circumvent the drawbacks 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).

Combustion research to be presented at the May 9th workshop of the French Académie des Sciences:

During the May 9th workshop organized at Académie des Sciences, combustion will be one of the topics discussed to illustrate the workshop topic ("Frontier Simulations in Solid and Fluid Mechanics"). The talk will be given by Dr T. Poinsot and will present recent progress in the field of LES of combustion, obtained at CERFACS in collaboration with CNRS laboratories, SAFRAN and ONERA. The full program is available here. At the same meeting, Pr F. Nicoud (CERFACS consultant) will also discuss recent work on blood flows performed in his group in Montpellier.Read more


CERFACS is partner in the “Chaire ANR industrielle” POSEIDON, inaugurated january 27th at Ecole Polytechnique

POSEIDON, one of the 5 « Chaires ANR industrielles » selected in 2016, is interested in « New plasma thrusters for satellites in low Earth orbit ». Coordinated by Anne Bourdon from the Laboratoire de Physique des Plasmas, this project gathers Ecole Polytechnique, CNRS and Safran Aircraft Engines in view of developing a new experimental and numerical methodology allowing to reduce the number of tests required for the development of future Hall effect thrusters. CERFACS brings its expertise for the 3D simulation of such thrusters with their real geometry. Crédit Ph. Auvray, LPPRead more
