PhD Student Seminar on Fluid Dynamics

On 29 November 2011, the first PhD student seminar entitled "Fluid dynamics on supercomputers" took place at the Jülich Supercomputing Centre. PhD students from JSC and the DLR Center for Computer Applications in AeroSpace Science and Engineering (C2A2S2E) in Braunschweig reported on research projects in aerodynamics, propulsion technology, flow simulation and numerical methods. The goal of the joint seminar is to exchange ideas and to improve networking between young researchers from C2A2S2E and JSC. Since 2010, DLR and Forschungszentrum Jülich cooperate in the field of aircraft simulations on supercomputers. Numerical simulations promise to reduce the development risks and to shorten the development cycles of aircrafts. It is expected that the next generation of aircrafts will be developed and tested completely on the computer ("digital aircraft"). Further information can be found at:
