CAGIRE brings together researchers from different backgrounds (turbulence modeling, applied mathematics, experimentation) who have gradually developed a common vision of what should be the CFD tools of the future. This objective is based on the strong motivation to be useful to industrial actors from different fields.
The considered flows are turbulent and most often bounded by walls. Consequently, they are characterized by the simultaneous presence of a multiplicity of spatial and temporal scales, which represents a challenge in terms of physical modeling and simulation.
This INRIA project-team was created in May 2016 as a team of the Bordeaux-South-West center and is hosted by the Department of mathematics and applied mathematics (LMAP), a joint research unit of the CNRS and the university of Pau. Our multidisciplinary approach allows us to study our application fields, mainly related to aeronautical and automotive propulsion, energy production and the reduction of their environmental impacts, from three different angles (experimentation, modeling, simulation).
