CFMS & Partners hold Webinar on High-Order CFD Technologies

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 high-order 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).

IC, Zenotech and CFMS will present an update on the Innovate UK project ‘Hyperflux’ (industrialising high order flux reconstruction methods), including a presentation on PyFR by Imperial College. PyFR is an open-source Python based software framework using Flux Reconstruction.  Zenotech will provide an update on the implementation of high order methods within the ZCFD code.

Sam Paice, Chief Operating Officer commented, “High-order methods have the potential to speed up the design cycle, reduce costs and improve products. We’re delighted to have the opportunity  to present with our partners, and to share progress in the development of these new industry methods and Hyperflux.”
