Cerfacs Enter the world of high performance ...

PUMA Challenge

The PUMA challenge addresses the unsteady multi-physics simulations over a whole aircraft in realistic flight conditions. The goal is to go further in understanding the unsteady turbulent phenomena using the Large Eddy Simulation (LES). Various numerical approaches will be evaluated and compared (Finite Volume, Lattice Boltzmann and Spectral Difference). Of course, large scale configuration demands many grid points and  playing with a massively parallel environment is the key point.

Unsteady multi-physics simulation around a whole aircraft taking realistic flight conditions into account. The unsteady variations of the flow around the aircraft are simulated with LES (Large Eddy Simulation).

Young PhD day

Brigitte Yzel |  19 February 2020

Cerfacs organizes its 5th edition of the Cerfacs Doctoral Students Day on Monday, May 11, 2020. This day will be an opportunity for each doctoral student to present his or her research subject in front of an audience of Cerfacs researchers but also representatives of our industrial and academic partners, as well as selected external guests. Great novelty this year, 10 students have the privilege to participate in a specific training course such as "My thesis in 180 seconds", in order to present their research topic in French and in simple terms. The day will end with the selection of the : best poster, and the best MT180 presentation.Read more
