The MC2 team works actually with the Plastic Omnium company in order to study the flow behaviour around square back ground vehicles (like buses, camions,...) using LES and DNS techniques. The main target of this collaboration is to identify the structures of velocity fields that generate aerodynamical losses, in order to design drag reduction control strategies using pulsed or synthetic jets. In the framework of this project, we also want to compute accurately instantaneous velocity fields, with high velocities. The computations should be performed on long time for complex geometries. A part of this work is included in the PhD thesis of Yoann Eulalie.
