CFD data processing using Antares

nasri |  

Announced
Deadline for registration: 15 days before the starting date of each training
Duration : 1 day / (6,5 hours)

Pre-registration

 

In March 2019, 100% of participants in this training were satisfied or very satisfied

 

Abstract

This training session aims at learning about the Antares library. This python tool enables to process numerical data from CFD simulations (and from other domains).
Using this library, users can develop their own programs that can read and write data in many formats, also compatible with many visualization standard tools, and that modify this data with available treatments.

Objective of the training

The simple software architecture and the python language allow the user to become the developer of its own features.

Learning outcomes

On completion of this course, you will be able to :

–  install the Antares python library,

–  to use the basic objects of the library in a python program,

–  to contribute to the improvement of development and to find help thanks to the Antares Redmine platform,

– find and use the Antares documentation to use the advanced functions of the library,

– implement the library in a complex application

Target participants

This course is for anyone wishing to process numerical data from CFD calculations in order to extract physical analysis.

Prerequisites

  • Knowledge of Unix commands.
  • Basic knowledge of Python
  • Knowledge of the field of numerical simulation.

In order to verify that the prerequisites are satisfied, the following questionnaires must be completed. You need to get at least 75% of correct answers in order to be authorized to follow this training session. If you don’t succeed it, your subscription will not be validated. You only have two chances to complete them.

First 360-degrees Large-Eddy Simulation of a full engine

Jérôme DOMBARD |  17 June 2020

Within the PRACE project FULLEST (First fUlL engine computation with Large Eddy SimulaTion), a joint collaboration between CERFACS, SAFRAN and AKIRA technologies, Dr. C. Pérez Arroyo (post doctoral fellow at CERFACS) has carried out under the supervision of Dr. J. Dombard the first high-fidelity simulation of a part of the real engine DGEN380 (for now, from the fan to the combustion chamber). This 360-degrees integrated large-eddy simulation contains around two billion cells on the three instances, carried out with the AVBP code of CERFACS.  The CPU cost is obviously large but still within reach, performing around one turn of fan during 5 days over 14400 skylake cores. Post-treatments are in progress and already show, among other complex phenomena, a strong interaction between the high pressure compressor and the combustion chamber (see forthcoming paper GT2020-16288 C. Pérez Arroyo et al). Below a video showing: in the fan an isosurface at mid-height of the vein colored by the Mach number, in the high pressure compressor a gradient of density, in the bypass of the combustion chamber the static pressure and in the flame tube a temperature field. One of the goals of the project is to create a high-fidelity unsteady database to study interactions between modules and may help other teams to develop new lower order models and/or validate existing ones. Beyond the feasibility and the maturity of the AVBP code, this kind of calculation is an important milestone for the aeronautical industry and would allow to apprehend earlier in the design the effect of integration and installation and thus, to reduce the cycle and therefore the cost of the future aircraft engines. We acknowledge PRACE for awarding us access to Joliot-Curie (Genci) hosted at CEA/TGCC, FRANCE, Safran Tech and DGAC fundings within the project ATOM, along with the invaluable technical support at...Read more
