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.

CERFACS scientist named in 2019 Clarivate ‘Highly Cited Researchers’ list

superadmin |  25 November 2019

Dr. Rosie Fisher, a researcher at CERFACS working on land surface modeling and terrestrial ecosystem dynamics, was named in the 2019 Web of Science "Highly Cited Researchers" list, which recognizes influential researchers of the past decade, as demonstrated by the authorship of highly-cited papers that rank in the top 1% by citations. Dr Fisher has been working in the Global Change group (GLOBC) at CERFACS since 2018 as part of a collaboration with the National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR) in Boulder, Colorado, where she was formerly a staff scientist.Read more


Sparse Days 2020

Brigitte Yzel |  25 November 2019

Sparse Days Meeting 2020 at Cerfacs, Toulouse June 11th-12th, 2020     The annual Sparse Days meeting will be held at CERFACS in Toulouse on 11th and 12th June 2020.  Registration for the Sparse Days is free but we ask people who are coming to register as soon as possible although the deadline is May 10th. Please register using the registration form. Although an emphasis will be on parallel aspects, any talk that has an association with sparsity is welcome. The length for a talk plus questions is 30 minutes although this is negotiable in either direction. Information on accommodation can be found on the web page.Read more
