Industrialization of high resolution numeric of complex flows in hydraulic systems
Available CFD tools however reach their limit at complex flow problems, because they have not been designed for massive parallel simulations.
The project team develops a CFD tool for real gas and multiphase flows, which takes into account new hardware architectures and exploits them. The CFD tool FLEXI, developed at the IAG (University of Stuttgart), is used as a basis. The researchers want to enhance it further for massive parallel industrial applications by i.e. improving efficiency of the communication between computational cores.
The project aim is an Open-Source CFD tool. The Robert Bosch GmbH wants to couple it with its own software libraries to simulate complex flows within Bosch products for the product development.
