Presentation of AVBP AVBP is a
parallel CFD code that solves the laminar and turbulent
compressible NavierStokes equations in two and three
space dimensions on unstructured, structured and hybrid
grids. While initially conceived for steady state flows
of aerodynamics the current main area of applications is
the modeling of unsteady (reacting) flows. These
activities are strongly related to the rising importance
paid to the understanding of the flow structure and
mechanisms leading to turbulence. The prediction of these
unsteady turbulent flows is primarily based on the Large
Eddy Simulation (LES) approach. An Arrhenius law simple
chemistry model allows to study reacting flows in the
field of combustion (and related instabilities) for
complex configurations.
AVBP runs on CICT workstations.
The Mesh
The mesh used for our simulations is represented on
the scheme below :
We can notice that the meshes is rather
fine in the zones where the flow might be complex or
where various gradients might be important, especially at
the inlet of the snorkel.
