EUROPORT 1 - HPCN3S
The Parallel Algorithms team of CERFACS is involved in Europort-1 (Esprit project EP 8421), project no. 8336, whose acronym is HPCN3S.
The objective of EUROPORT is to demonstrate the benefits of parallel computing technology for industry. This is done by porting 38 large serial commercial and industrial codes to parallel computers. One of these codes is N3S, a CFD package developed by EDF (Electricité De France) and INRIA-Simulog (France) for the simulation of complex industrial flows. It is widely used in different industries, including the automotive, aerospace, defence, energy, oil, turbomachinery, environment, and medical.
Within the HPCN3S consortium, coordinated by Simulog, the complete software (compressible and incompressible implicit time schemes for unstructured meshes made of tetrahedra) is parallelised with the help and expertise of CERFACS and EDF. The end-users of this project are IFP (Institut Français du Pétrole), CISE (Centro Informazioni Studi Esperienze, Italy), and VKI (Von Karman Institute, Belgium).
