Hyperflux is one of several projects within the ‘Towards Zero Prototyping’ Programme run by Innovate UK together with the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC). CFMS is leading the Hyperflux project, working with Imperial College, experts in High-order (flux reconstruction) Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) Methods (HOMs) and Zenotech, a CFD software provider and specialist in cloud high performance computing )HPC).
High-order CFD methods using the flux reconstruction (DG) approach offers new potential for the accurate, efficient simulation of unsteady flows (including acoustics) with shed vortices and wakes, providing higher fidelity solutions than currently achievable with low-order schemes on unstructured grids. The software exploits the full power of modern high performance computing (HPC), particularly heterogeneous configurations of conventional and many-core processors for speed and efficiency.
The two year project is now complete and we are pleased to offer industry a working capability for evaluation at CFMS.
With many organisations eager to learn more about high-order CFD and try out the method on realistic test cases, CFMS and partners will be holding a free workshop on 11th October 2016, 10.00 - 16.00 hrs, which will outline the high-order method, describe what has been implemented in the code base and show how to set up and run test cases for aerospace, automotive, maritime, civil and renewables engineering.
