The AVBP code from CERFACS at the heart of three PRACE projects from the 23rd call

CERFACS |  30 September 2021

Cerfacs is involved in three PRACE projects of the 23rd call for which hour allocation runs from 01/10/2021 to 30/09/2022. Researchers from ECL/LMFA UMR5509 (Ecole Centrale de Lyon) and IMFT (UMR 5502) laboratories have earned projects entirely based on the use of the LES solver developed by Cerfacs AVBP and involve the support of experts from the CFD and COOP teams underling the importance and effectiveness of collaborations between French labs and Cerfacs. Alexis Giauque from ECL/LMFA UMR5509 (Ecole Centrale de Lyon) has obtained not only one but two PRACE projects! The first project LESFAN (RA0101, 30 000 000 CPU hours on Irene/Rome TGCC) is based on the use of AVBP in the turbomachinery version to study the generation of noise by a fan of a real airplane engine. The second, PRACE-EDGES (RA0101, 40 000 000 CPU hours on Irene/Rome TGCC) focuses on LES modeling of dens gas in complex geometries. To do so, the LMFA Team has developed advanced thermodynamic closures in AVBP allowing the direct simulation of such flows. Laurent Selle from IMFT (UMR 5502) has received CPU hours for the GASTON project (RA0061, 30 000 000 CPU hours on Marenostrum BSC) which aims to study the structure of hydrogen flames in porous materials. For this, IMFT and Cerfacs will perform coupled simulations considering the reactive flow with AVBP as well as the conduction in the porous medium with AVTP which is known to play an central role in the flame stabilization process.Read more

watch the online contest ”my thesis in 180 sec” organized for Marie Curie actions

CERFACS |  24 September 2021

Next Thursday, Sept 30th the #FallingWallsLab #MSCA research presentation competition will take place, . This is a competition in which 15 researchers compete to deliver the best presentation of their research topic in the format "my thesis in 180 seconds" . Javier Crespo-Anadon, 3rd year PhD student in the CFD team is one of the 15 finalists and he will present this thesis topic: ignition in spinning combustion engines for a reduction in CO2 emissions! You can watch it online on the above website on Sept 30th at 3pm. I encourage you to go to the website and register!  You'll be able to listen to the other participants' pitches and vote for your favorite. Come and see for yourself what kind of research the EU funds!Read more
