CRA - Region Nouvelle Aquitaine EVE

  • Coordinator : P.M. Congedo

  • Abstract : The main objective of this thesis is the construction of a numerical platform, for permitting an efficient virtual prototyping of the EVE expander. This will provide EXOES with a numerical tool, that is much more predictive with respect to the tools currently available and used in EXOES, by respecting an optimal trade-off in terms of complexity/cost needed during an industrial design process.i Two research axes will be mainly developed. First, the objective is to perform some high- predictive numerical simulation for reducing the amount of experiments, thanks to a specific devel- opment of RANS tools (Reynolds Averaged Navier-Stokes equations) for the fluids of interest for EXOES. These tools would rely on complex thermodynamic models and a turbulence model that should be modified. The second axis is focused on the integration of the solvers of different fidelity in a multi-fidelity platform for performing optimization under uncertainties. The idea is to evaluate the system perfor- mances by using massively the low-fidelity models, and by correcting these estimations via only few calculations with the high-fidelity code.

CRA - Region Aquitaine ETRURIA

  • Title : EvaluaTion des Risques de submersion côtière et Urbaine par Remaillage et déformatIon Adaptative de maillage (ETRURIA)

  • Type : Co-funded from Region Aquitaine and Inria

  • Duration : 36 months

  • Starting : November 2018

  • Coordinator : M. Ricchiuto

  • Abstract : the objective of this project is to develop improved tools for the simulation of coastal floods by combining mesh adaptation techniques based on remeshing and deformation, representations of the coastal structures allowing to mix exact meshing and embedded representations, and high order schemes. The tools developed will be used to study inundation of French coasts, and in particular coasts of the Nouvelle Aquitaine Region, in collaboration with BRGM, and the Rivages ProTech Center of SUEZ.
