Deadline for registration: 15 days before the starting date of each training
Duration : 1 day (7 hours)
Large Eddy Simulation (LES) needs accurate schemes with enhanced spectral properties (low dissipation and low dispersion). Even if standard high order schemes (WENO, compact…) respect this need for structured grids, the situation is less clear for complex geometries, where unstructured grids are required.
The discontinuous spectral methods were introduced in order to circumvent the drawbacks of standard methods on unstructured grids. In this case, any conservative quantity is defined as a local polynomial in a control volume through its definition in several degrees of freedom per cell.
During this training, we will introduce these approaches defines as spectral discontinuous. After a bibliographic review, attention is paid on applications performed with the in-house solver JAGUAR developed at CERFACS and based on a discontinuous spectral formalism.
Objective of the training
To learn about spectral discontinuous approaches and to know how to realize LES computations with them.
The participants should be able to :
- explain the differences between the different numerical schemes,
- chose the good number of iterations in order to reach the convergence,
- use the good sub-grid model,
- chose the good size of unstructured grids,
- being able to simulate academicals configurations.
This training session is for students, engineers, physicists and computer scientists who wish to reinforce or extend their theoretical background to the precise use and analysis of CFD simulations.
In order to follow this course, you need to:
- Knowledge of Unix commands.
- Knowledge of numerical flow simulations.
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.
