  • The Inria's Research Teams produce an annual Activity Report presenting their activities and their results of the year. These reports include the team members, the scientific program, the software developed by the team and the new results of the year. The report also describes the grants, contracts and the activities of dissemination and teaching. Finally, the report gives the list of publications of the year.

Section: Research Program


The research activities carried out within the ANGE team strongly couple the development of methodological tools with applications to real–life problems and the transfer of numerical codes. The main purpose is to obtain new models adapted to the physical phenomena at stake, identify the main properties that reflect the physical sense of the models (uniqueness, conservativity, entropy dissipation, ...) and propose effective numerical methods to estimate their solution in complex configurations (multi-dimensional, unstructured meshes, well-balanced, ...).

The difficulties arising in gravity driven flow studies are threefold.

  • Models and equations encountered in fluid mechanics (typically the free surface Navier-Stokes equations) are complex to analyze and solve.

  • The underlying phenomena often take place over large domains with very heterogeneous length scales (size of the domain, mean depth, wave length,...) and distinct time scales, e.g. coastal erosion, propagation of a tsunami,...

  • These problems are multi-physics with strong couplings and nonlinearities.
