Space propulsion : understanding and simulating

Only numerical simulation allows to understand the very complex and critical phenomena belonging to the conception and development of the solid/liquid propellant rocket engines.

CERFACS develops a simulation tool dedicated to spatial propulsion, AVBP-GR, which is able to simulate turbulent/transient phenomena of rocket engines in realistic conditions. It also takes into account the supercritical conditions which occur in liquid-propulsion systems.

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
