Research

 Research

- Research topics :

  • Multidisciplinary Design Optimization
  • Bio-inspired Fluid Design
  • Soft Sails for Propulsion & Energy
  • Unsteady separated flows & Flow Control

- Our research is based on the development of a computational framework VLab 3.0 to make time accurate highly reliable numerical simulations in fluid mechanics. This computational framework is based on parametric geometries (in house development), a mesher (GAMBIT, GMSH, ICEMCFD) and a solver (FLUENT, StarCCM+, OpenFOAM) and may be used to produce new design by solving optimization problems (fluid mechanics or multiphysics).

Flow Control

- VLab 3.0 is used to investigate the leading-edge flow separation around an airfoil and its control through the implementation of actuators on the wall surface. New flow control strategies are defined and validated through high-fidelity numerical simulations based on RANS, URANS, DES, DNS and on actuator design optimizations.

Bio-inspired Fluid Design

- We are trying to gain insight into the physical mechanisms of the unsteady flow of corrugated dragonfly wing sections .

- We are studying the flow around bio-inspired wings with sinusoïdal leading-edge as whale flippers.

VLab

- VLab is a framework or a numerical plateform developped at the DAEP to simulate, design and optimize flows around or in various geometries. It is based on the coupling of mesh generators, solvers and optimization algorithms to produce enhanced flows in optimized geometries through high-fidelity numerical simulations.

- Recently developed :

  • 2D simulation around all airfoil geometries (Javafoil format)
  • 2D simulation around multi-elements airfoil
  • 2D simulation & optimization of corrugated dragonfly wing sections
  • 3D sails aerodynamic & optimization
  • 3D Fluid-Structure Interaction on sails
  • 3D Biomimetic Wing Optimization
