Cerfacs Enter the world of high performance ...

Research at CERFACS

The CERFACS’ research strategy aims at anticipating the structuring challenges that answer scientific, technological or society issues to which  four major fields are faced for the future decades.

AERONAUTICS – SPATIAL – ENERGY – ENVIRONMENT AND CLIMATE

Research activities at CERFACS

Research is declined in nine axes :

High Performance Computing

Data assimilation and optimization

Numerical methods and linear algebra

Combustion

Aerodynamics

Uncertainties

Climate

Coupling and interfaces

Environment

Challenges at CERFACS

Five big challenges benefit from the CERFACS teams’ interdisciplinary diversity of skills and knowledge :

• Decadal weather forecasts : Declipp challenge

• Modeling for environment and security : Modest challenge

• Simulation of space propulsion : Decola challenge

• Simulation of a turbine operation : Cougar challenge

• Simulation of a whole-body aircraft : Puma challenge

One Cerfacs’ proposal accepted in PRACE 15th call

superadmin |  4 December 2017

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


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
