CAGIRE brings together since May 2016 researchers coming from different horizons and backgrounds (turbulence modelling, applied mathematics, experiment) who elaborated since 2011 a common vision of what should be the simulation tool of fluid dynamics of tomorrow. If not entirely application-driven, this project is based on the will for developing tools that could be useful in a way or another to the companies (big but also small !) that are active in the competitive fields of aviation/automotive propulsion and energy production. The targeted flows are (mostly) wall bounded and turbulent. As a consequence, they feature a multiplicity of time and scale fluctuations that renders their simulation extremely challenging. The team's motto is agility or equivalently a clever use of adaptativity in the developed simulation suite based on I) The capability of being run on any present or future new supercomputer in a way that fully benefits from the hardware evolution while limiting the painful and time consuming phase of machine adaptation by the recourse to an efficient runtime, ii) A high level of accuracy and robustness permitting the use on a large range of flow configurations: ranging from the generic lab scale geometry to that of a practical interest, iii) The capability of adapting on the fly the physical modelling by recourse to dynamic hybridization of the most relevant models of a given class with a focus on the turbulence modeling.
