View the High-Order CFD Technologies Webinar

The High-Order Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) Technologies webinar discusses 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 outlines 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 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.

About CFMS

We are proud to be a growing, independent and not-for-profit organisation that specialises in high value design capability. We promote advanced modelling and simulation, underpinned by HPC, pushing the boundaries of technology.

Through our exceptional, collaborative, virtual and physical facility, we enable the adoption and acceleration of new technologies for advanced modelling and simulation, while improving learning and developing awareness of state-of-the art.

Our collaborative links extend across industry, academia and the research supply chain. Engaging with organisations large and small, we enable companies of all sizes to experience the full benefit of modelling and simulation, helping to provide access to the right tools, resources, skills and technologies, resulting in increased productivity and faster, more informed decision-making.

As a trusted and neutral provider, our vision is to drive a revolution in engineering design capability, working with organisations to reduce risk in the design phase, product development costs and time to market.
