Deadline for registration: 15 days before the starting date of each training
Duration : 5 days / (35 hours)
This training session allows participants to understand the underlying basics of Large Eddy Simulation (LES): numerics, boundary conditions, LES closures and combustion modeling. The CFD code AVBP (version 7.0.2) co-developed by CERFACS and IFPEN is used for hands-on to compute both academic and realistic configurations of reacting compressible flows.
This training session is for engineers, physicists, computer scientists and numerical analysts who wish to learn to use LES and to manipulate a CFD code dedicated to LES.
Unix, Fortran, numerical simulation.
