CERFACS Chemistry Sharing knowledge for CFD chemical kinetics

Numerical methods for Large Eddy Simulations

  From Monday 26 November 2018 to Friday 30 November 2018

  CERFACS, Toulouse - France    

Deadline for registration: 15 days before the starting date of each training
Duration : 5 days / (35 hours)


This training course allows participants to understand the underlying basics of two-phase reacting Large Eddy Simulation (LES): numerics, boundary conditions, LES closures, two-phase flow and combustion modeling. The version 7.0.2 of AVBP has been used for hands-on since October 2016 to compute both academic and realistic configurations of two-phase reacting compressible flows.

Target participants
This training session is for engineers, physicists, computer scientists and numerical analysts who wish to learn to use LES and to manipulate a CFD code dedicated to LES.

Unix, Fortran, numerical simulation.
