PhD Defense: Pierre CAYOT – High order numerical schemes for Large Eddy Simulation on unstructured grids

ROGEL |  SALLE DE CONFÉRENCE JEAN-CLAUDE ANDRÉ |  

Abstract:

This study will present the development and results of high-order Finite Volume schemes for unstructured grids. The goal is to prepare numerical tools to perform Large Eddy Simulations with the indutrial solver elsA. These numerical schemes are based on a directional approach in order to limitate the  CPU cost and reduce the stencil. The convective part of the scheme needsto be high order and this is obtained by the use of gradients on a four-cell stencil. Two gradients are usedfor the convective part, the Green-Gauss gradient and the “UIG” gradient.  For the diffusive part, the “UIG” gradient is used. It was developped during this study and allows to recover a second-order accurate scheme. This gradient was validated  theorically and numerically on some test cases.High order numerical schemes were studied theorically with order and frequency analysis. It was shown that these schemes are fifth-order accurate on regular hexaedral elements and third order accurate on equilateral triangles. Following this analysis, these schemes were tested in 1D on an advection test case and were then validated on the convection of an isentropic vortex.

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
