Abstract

The thermoacoustic AVSP code developed at Cerfacs is a general purpose Helmholtz solver which computes the frequency of oscillation, growth rate and spatial structure of the thermoacoustic modes of interest. Several test cases are considered during this one day training session in order to get the participants acquainted with the different features of AVSP (speed of sound inhomogeneities, complex valued boundary impedance, multi-perforated liners, acoustic flame coupling, multi-burner annular combustors, …).

Objective of the training

This training session aims at teaching to the partcipants the basics of combustion instabilities as well as how to use the thermoacoustic AVSP code.

Learning outcomes

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

  • master the different features AVSP solver
  • use the AVSP solver.

Target participants

This training session is for engineers, physicists, computer scientists and numerical analysts who wish to learn on thermoacoustic instabilities.

Prerequisites

In order to follow this course, you need to be able to:

  • use basic Linux commands (changing a directory, removing a file, …)
  • perform elementary operations on complex numbers (conjugate, polar form, …) and use Euler’s formula,
  • explain physical properties of waves (frequency, pulsation, wave number, …)
  • use basic notions of acoustic impedance.

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 them.

The Cerfacs will participate in the French HPC competence centre.

superadmin |  17 April 2020

The European Commission, via a EuroHPC call for projects, has asked each of the member states to create a National HPC Competence Centre, which will be its sole interlocutor, both to express the needs of users with regard to these new technologies and to accompany them in their implementation. Teratec, Cerfacs and Genci presented their candidature as French HPC Competence Centre which was accepted by the commission. The starting date of the Competence Centre is set for 1 September 2020.Read more
