Cerfacs Enter the world of high performance ...

Research at CERFACS

The CERFACS’ research strategy aims at anticipating the structuring challenges that answer scientific, technological or society issues to which  four major fields are faced for the future decades.

AERONAUTICS – SPATIAL – ENERGY – ENVIRONMENT AND CLIMATE

Research activities at CERFACS

Research is declined in nine axes :

High Performance Computing

Data assimilation and optimization

Numerical methods and linear algebra

Combustion

Aerodynamics

Uncertainties

Climate

Coupling and interfaces

Environment

Challenges at CERFACS

Five big challenges benefit from the CERFACS teams’ interdisciplinary diversity of skills and knowledge :

• Decadal weather forecasts : Declipp challenge

• Modeling for environment and security : Modest challenge

• Simulation of space propulsion : Decola challenge

• Simulation of a turbine operation : Cougar challenge

• Simulation of a whole-body aircraft : Puma challenge
