Numerical tools for complex chemistry simulations: the open source CANTERA solver

nasri |  

Announced
Deadline for registration: 15 days before the starting date of each training
Duration : 1 day / (7 hours)
Pre-registration

Abstract

This training session provides the participants with an introduction to CANTERA, a suite of object-oriented software tools for problems involving chemical kinetics, thermodynamics, and/or transport processes. CANTERA is an open source software, comparable to the CHEMKIN or COSILAB simulation tools, currently used for applications including used for applications including combustion, detonations, plasmas… Participants will get an overview of what it is possible to do with CANTERA, from the installation of the code with insights on its architecture and underlying methods to hands-on sessions enabling script generation and testing.

Target participants

This training session is for engineers, conbustionists, physicists, and students who wish to learn how to use an efficient and free software for problems involving chemical kinetics.

Prerequisites

Unix, Python and some basic knowledge of C/C++.

Scientific contact : Eleonore RIBER

67 climate modelling groups use OASIS3-MCT to assemble more than 80 coupled applications

superadmin |  10 September 2019

OASIS3-MCT is a coupler of codes developed at Cerfacs and used around the world, mainly for climate modelling applications. Our last survey confirms that OASIS3-MCT is used by 67 modelling groups to assemble more than 80 different coupled applications over the 5 continents. These applications include global or regional configurations of ocean and atmosphere models but also sea ice, sea level, wave, ocean biogeochemistry, land, vegetation, river routing, hydrological and atmospheric chemistry models. OASIS3-MCT is used in 5 of the 7 European Earth System Models participating to the 6th Coupled Model Intercomparison Project (CMIP6) that produces the climate simulations forming the basis of the next report of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC)”Read more


Sparse Days Meeting 2019 at Cerfacs, Toulouse

Brigitte Yzel |  12 May 2019

The annual Sparse Days meeting will be held at CERFACS in Toulouse on 11th and 12th July 2019. Registration for the Sparse Days is free but we ask people who are coming to register as soon as possible although the deadline is June 14th. Please complete the registration form (deadline : June 14th) indicating whether you want to give a talk and whether you wish to attend the conference dinner. Although an emphasis will be on parallel aspects, any talk that has an association with sparsity is welcome.Read more
