Cerfacs Enter the world of high performance ...

Come at Cerfacs by bike

Cycling: it’s good for your health, air quality and climate! This page presents the initiatives implemented at Cerfacs to promote the daily use of bicycles.

 

News & Events

Allons-Y A Vélo (AYAV) – “Let's go by bike” starts next Monday at Cerfacs and on Météo-France campus! From May 25th to June 25th, leave your car in the garage, hop on your bicycle and get some fresh air!

In particular, Cerfacs participates in the AYAV challenge: use your bike to come to work and write down in this form (link to come) the kms covered each day of the week and help us rank Cerfacs among the most cycling companies in the Toulouse region!

More details very soon and have fun cycling!

The map of the routes of Cerfacs cyclists

Many people come to Cerfacs daily by bike. Here is the map of their itineraries. Feel free to contact them if you want more information about these trips. If you want to add your route, contact us!

Bicycle mileage allowance (Forfait Mobilité Durable – FMD)

Since January 1, 2021, Cerfacs has implemented the bicycle mileage allowance (FMD for Forfait Mobilité Durable) for its employees, according to this agreement, which regulates its terms. If you are a Cerfacs employee and wish to benefit from the  FMD (up to 500 Euros per year), first read the document on bicycle safety rules and then complete and sign the FMD payment request form. The  will be paid quarterly upon presentation of the completed template file.

 

Self-service bicycles

Do you need a bike for a race in Les Pradettes, to get around the campus, or even to go home one night because your car broke down?

Two bicycles are in self-service, one pink and white and one green just outside the old building. Feel free to take advantage of it. The keys are available at the Cerfacs reception desk and in the F4 office (NW corner of the old building). You will then be asked to sign a release form.

 

Repair material

Repair equipment is available in office D2 (just next to the GLOBC meeting room). There is also an inflation and repair station with a stem and various tools on the parking lot of the social centre on the right as you leave Météo-France.

 

Nearest bicycle-Toulouse station

The nearest Toulouse Velô station is located 700 m from the entrance to the site at the junction between Chemin Reboul and Chemin du Marin, and there are also some at Les Pradettes and Route de Saint-Simon. All the details on the Vélô Toulouse website.

The AVBP code from CERFACS at the heart of for PRACE projects from the 23rd call

CERFACS |  30 September 2021

Cerfacs is involved in three PRACE projects of the 23rd call for which hour allocation runs from 01/10/2021 to 30/09/2022. Researchers from ECL/LMFA UMR5509 (Ecole Centrale de Lyon) and IMFT (UMR 5502) laboratories have earned projects entirely based on the use of the LES solver developed by Cerfacs AVBP and involve the support of experts from the CFD and COOP teams underling the importance and effectiveness of collaborations between French labs and Cerfacs. Alexis Giauque from ECL/LMFA UMR5509 (Ecole Centrale de Lyon) has obtained not only one but two PRACE projects! The first project LESFAN (RA0101, 30 000 000 CPU hours on Irene/Rome TGCC) is based on the use of AVBP in the turbomachinery version to study the generation of noise by a fan of a real airplane engine. The second, PRACE-EDGES (RA0101, 40 000 000 CPU hours on Irene/Rome TGCC) focuses on LES modeling of dens gas in complex geometries. To do so, the LMFA Team has developed advanced thermodynamic closures in AVBP allowing the direct simulation of such flows. Laurent Selle from IMFT (UMR 5502) has received CPU hours for the GASTON project (RA0061, 30 000 000 CPU hours on Marenostrum BSC) which aims to study the structure of hydrogen flames in porous materials. For this, IMFT and Cerfacs will perform coupled simulations considering the reactive flow with AVBP as well as the conduction in the porous medium with AVTP which is known to play an central role in the flame stabilization process. Carlos Perez Arroyo from IMFT (UMR 5502) received 16 Mh CPU hours on Joliot-Curie Skylake partition to support his project WONDER.Read more
