Hands-On Tutorial on CFD Using Code_Saturne


Event Details

The 2016 Hands-on Tutorial on CFD using the open-source software Code_Saturne will take place on 4-6 October 2016, at the Hartree CECAM Node, STFC Daresbury Laboratory, UK. The school is aimed at researchers who wish to gain a better understanding of methodologies and best practices in exploiting CFD and turbulence modelling applications on HPC systems.

The programme will contain the following topics:-

  • Introduction to turbulence, focusing on Large-Eddy Simulation (LES) by Prof. M. Germano from Duke University (US).
  • Description of the latest fully validated version of Code_Saturne (V4.0) and its structure.
  • Use of Code_Saturne's GUI.
  • Use of Code_Saturne's user subroutines.
  • Introduction to HPC and an opportunity to run simulations on a local supercomputer using a large number of processors.

The hands-on tutorials will focus on flows in tube bundles, and then in pumps (showcasing the code-code coupling and turbomachinery modules).

The course will start at 10am (with registration from 9am) on Tuesday 4 October and finish at 3:30pm on Thursday 6 October.

This school is organised by the STFC Daresbury Laboratory Scientific Computing Department, the Hartree Centre and EDF Energy UK Research Centre and is funded by CECAM.

Participation at the school is free of charge, excluding travel. Tea/coffee/lunch and dinners will be covered. Participants will work from local workstations and submit overnight simulations on one of the Hartree Centre supercomputers, their IBM POWER8 cluster.

The registration deadline has been extended to Friday 23rd September 2016.

Prerequisites: Participants are expected to have some experience with Linux systems and programming basics in C/Fortran. They are also expected to know the fundamentals of Computational Fluid Dynamics.

Accommodation will be provided at the Mercure Hotel, Chester for those that require it. A FREE shuttle service will operate from the Mercure Hotel. We will also provide two evening meals in Chester on the Tuesday and Wednesday evenings. Please Note: we do not have any funding to provide for travel costs.
