A project by Ghent University which aims to develop a flexible, open source Large-Eddy Simulations (LES) Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) code-base for multiscale modelling of several multidisciplinary applications.

The overall objective of this concerted research action is to develop a flexible, open source, Large-Eddy Simulations (LES) Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) code-base for multiscale modelling of several multidisciplinary applications. The code-base will contain tools that can be fine-tuned for specific applications, but which are all developed from a strong common basis.

An integrated code-base in the existing OpenFoam framework will be developed, such that an ‘UGent OpenFoam Community’ can emerge, taking advantage of code sharing and joint code development. The long-term objective is that much faster and solid progress can be made by all research units in the consortium (and later on at UGent) that actively use CFD, building upon shared knowledge and experience of all community members and particularly strengthening progress by cross-fertilization among the partners
