Jülich Supercomputing Centre, Ausbildungsraum 1, building 16.3, room 213a

The 2017 Hands-on Tutorial on CFD using the open-source software Code_Saturne will take place on 4-6 October 2017, at the Jülich CECAM Node, Forschungszentrum Jülich, Jülich Supercomputing Centre, Germany. The school is aimed at researchers who wish to gain a better understanding of methodologies and best practices in exploiting CFD and turbulence modelling applications on HPC systems.

The programme will contain the following topics:

  • Introduction to turbulence, focusing on Large-Eddy Simulation (LES)
  • Description of the latest fully validated version of Code_Saturne (V5.0) and its structure.
  • Use of Code_Saturne's GUI.
  • Use of Code_Saturne's user subroutines.
  • Introduction to HPC and an opportunity to run simulations on a local supercomputer using a large number of processors.

The hands-on tutorials will focus on flows in tube bundles, and then in pumps (showcasing the code-code coupling and turbomachinery modules).

The course will start at 10am (with registration from 9am) on Wednesday 4 October and finish at 2pm on Friday 6 October.

This school is organised by the STFC Daresbury Laboratory Scientific Computing Department and EDF Energy UK Research Centre and is funded by CECAM.

Participation at the school is free of charge, excluding travel. Tea/coffee/lunch and dinners will be covered. Participants will work from local workstations and submit overnight simulations on one of the Juelich Research Centre supercomputers, their IBM Blue Gene/Q, Juqueen.

The deadline for registration is Friday 22 September 2017.

Prerequisites: Participants are expected to have some experience with Linux systems and programming basics in C/Fortran. They are also expected to know the fundamentals of Computational Fluid Dynamics.

Accommodation will be provided for those that require it (see booking infromation opposite). We will also provide two evening meals in Juelich on Wednesday and Thursday evening.

Please note: we do not have any funding to provide for travel costs.

Start Date: Wednesday, 4th October 2017
End Date: Friday, 6th October 2017

Price: £0
