Abstract

CFD in realistic geometries requires complex meshes. Among the many commercial knitters on the market, CENTAUR is particularly powerful for unstructured meshes. It is therefore a good candidate for meshing complex geometries.

Objective of the training

The objective of this training is to learn mesh generation techniques, especially for unstructured and hybrid meshes using the CENTAUR software.

Learning outcomes

At the end of the training, participants will be able to:

  • Use CENTAUR via the graphical interface.
  • Import a geometry, clean it and put in data the boundary conditions.
  • Create the sources of refinement, whether they are surfacic or volumic.
  • Generate a first mesh and have a critical look at the number of cells and smallest cell volume.
  • Evaluate the quality of the mesh and know how to clean it.

Target participants

This course is intended for anyone in the field of CFD (engineers, doctoral students, postdocs, trainees) wishing to mesh any geometry under Centaur. The target is primarily internal aerodynamics, not external (aircraft wing for example).

Prerequisites

Basic knowledge of what a mesh is and preliminary notions of CFD.

In order to follow this course, you need to:

  • be familiar with the use of basic Linux commands.

In order to verify that the prerequisites are satisfied, the following questionnaire 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 it.

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
