High-Order Computational Fluid Dynamics Technologies Webinar

The Centre for Modelling & Simulation (CFMS) and partners will be holding a webinar on the topic of ‘High-Order (HO) Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) Technologies’, on 21st September 2015, between 14.00 - 15.00 (GMT+1)

Delegates will have the opportunity to hear about the development and industrialisation of HO CFD methods, gaining an appreciation of the current state of the art - as well as a view on the future capability. High-order CFD techniques are attracting considerable research interest, as they offer the potential for significantly more accurate fluid dynamics simulation - particularly in the age of many-core processors (such as GPUs).

While CFD is used in many engineering sectors, greater accuracy & efficiency are required before it can replace expensive physical prototypes for unsteady flows (including acoustics) and for resolving shed vortices and wakes.  High-order flux reconstruction methods developed by Dr. Peter Vincent from the department of Aeronautics at Imperial College London (IC) are a potential solution.

The webinar agenda will outline the developments in the production of high-order meshing, delivered by High Order Preprocessor (HOPR), who produce open-source software for the generation of three-dimensional unstructured high-order meshes, and Pointwise, a developer of software used for grid generation and preprocessing for computational fluid dynamics (CFD).

Zenotech and IC will present an update on the Innovate UK project ‘Hyperflux’ (industrialising high order flux reconstruction methods), led by CFMS which is a prototype software base developed for industrial evaluation.

Hyperflux is one of several funded projects within the ‘Towards Zero Prototyping’ Programme run by Innovate UK together with the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC). Having commenced September 2014, the Hyperflux project will run for two years, resulting in the creation of a prototype software for industrial evaluation,
