Code_Saturne Training Course at Juelich Research Centre (Germany)

The course (sponsored by CECAM) will take place from 4 to 6 October 2017.

The following topics will be dealt with:

  • Introduction to turbulence, focusing on Large-Eddy Simulation (LES)
  • Description of the latest fully validated version of Code_Saturne ( V5.0) and its structure
  • Using Code_Saturne's GUI
  • Using Code_Saturne's user subroutines
  • Introduction to HPC, and Blue Gene/Q

The following hands-on sessions will be delivered first:

  • Hands-on Session: laminar flow through tube bundles using the GUI
  • Hands-on Session: LES of flow through tube bundles with GUI
  • Hands-on Session: LES of flow through tube bundles with user subroutines

The last hand-on session will offer the opportunity to the attendees to perform a simulation on 128 nodes (up to 8,192 threads) of the Blue Gene/Q overnight.

The second part of the tutorial will deal with:

  • Hands-on Session: use of subroutines for advanced post-processing
  • Hands-on Session: effect of the partitioning on the time to solution
  • Hands-on Session: code-code coupling (flow in a pump)
  • Hands-on Session: turbulent flow in a pump using Code_Saturne's turbomachinary module
