In order to efficiently represent complex systems, numerical modelling has to rely on many physical models at a time: an ocean model coupled with an atmospheric model is at the basis of climate modelling; a combustion model coupled with a radiation model allows the computation of a combustion chamber temperature. The continuity of the solution is granted only if these models can constantly exchange information.
OpenPALM is a software allowing the concurrent execution and the intercommunication of programs based on in-house as well as commercial codes.
The OpenPALM team proposes training to the coupler several times each years at CERFACS. Moreover, don't hesitate to contact us directly (firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com) if you want informations on the coupler, on the instrumentations on the code to couple as well as on coupling algorithms.
The next basic course will take place at CERFACS from January 14 to 16 2015 with at most 20 participants. Please check the application policy
