Modeling and simulation of self propelled swimmers

Numerical simulation of a self propelled fish like prototype

Energy for fluids

Two examples of energy extractors: wind turbines and ocean waves energy converter

Elasto-plastic impact in air

Monolithic model and level-set: the same model and the same scheme are used to simulate a complex fluid-structure interaction

Rarefied gas flow simulations

Blunt body on an octree grid, hypersonic re-entry and nozzle backflow in satellite thrusters.


We aim at a step change in numerical modeling for science and engineering. We do that by developing two fundamental enablers: reduced-order models and monolithic numerical models on hierarchical Cartesian grids. Thanks to these enablers it will be possible to transfer complexity handling from engineers to computers, providing fast, on-line numerical models for simulation.
