Highlights of the Year
On Tuesday, 19 June, the Project AMDECC (Adaptation de Maillage Dynamique et massivement parallèle pour la simulation aux grandes Echelles des Chambres de Combustion aéronautiques), launched 5 years ago within a partnership with Safran Tech and the CORIA (UMR6614 CNRS Université de Rouen and INSA Rouen), received the Award for Best Collaborative Project, one of the Digital Simulation Trophies awarded by Teratec and Usine Digitale. The aim of this project is to design helicopter engines that afford better, and cleaner, performance. To achieve this, the team uses large-scale simulations of engine combustion chambers with a view to improving quality-to-cost ratio. Optimising the simulations is key to the project's success since this approach requires intensive use of high-performance computing. Adaptation is performed with the MMG platform developed by C. Dobrzynski. For more information see https://www.inria.fr/en/centre/bordeaux/news/amdecc-project-wins-award-at-teratec-forum and https://www.mmgtools.org .
One of the articles of M. Colin, 'Standing waves for the nonlinear Schrödinger equation coupled with the Maxwell equation', published in Nonlinearity, has been selected for the journal's 2017 Highlights Collection<http://iopscience.iop.org/journal/0951-7715/page/Highlights-of-2017>.
