Data processing tools for fluid mechanics


Antares is a data processing library that works on structured and unstructured data from simulations in fluid mechanics. It can be used in a standalone mode (data are stored in files) or in a co-processing mode (data to be analyzed are directly accessed from the solver memory). This library handles many file formats. It is currently used by our partners for various applications (external aerodynamics, combustion, turbomachinery, aeroacoustics, etc.).

For more information: refer to the Antares website.

67 climate modelling groups use OASIS3-MCT to assemble more than 80 coupled applications

superadmin |  10 September 2019

OASIS3-MCT is a coupler of codes developed at Cerfacs and used around the world, mainly for climate modelling applications. Our last survey confirms that OASIS3-MCT is used by 67 modelling groups to assemble more than 80 different coupled applications over the 5 continents. These applications include global or regional configurations of ocean and atmosphere models but also sea ice, sea level, wave, ocean biogeochemistry, land, vegetation, river routing, hydrological and atmospheric chemistry models. OASIS3-MCT is used in 5 of the 7 European Earth System Models participating to the 6th Coupled Model Intercomparison Project (CMIP6) that produces the climate simulations forming the basis of the next report of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC)”Read more
