Developed by Prof Mark Thompson, the premier expert on Computational Fluid Dynamics in the Department of Mechanical Engineering, the "se2d/se3d" family of Computational Fluid Dynamics codes provide users with the following possibilities:
High-order computations of 2D and 3D geometries,
Simulations incorporating compliant boundaries and fluid-structure interactions,
Stability analysis techniques for transitions to time-dependent and 3D flows,
Plotting for interactive flow visualisation and data output for 2D/3D post-processing of simulation data,
Simulated particle tracking,
Drag/lift force calculations,
Recording of time history of flow at specific locations within the flow.
These codes are available for use by both Final-Year Project students and Postgraduate students within FLAIR, and can be run on platforms ranging from a desktop PC to parallel computer clusters which can be accessed remotely.
Supporting software for mesh generation, post-processing, and flow visualisation can also be provided.
Simulations using these codes have resulted in dozens of publications in leading Journals and international conferences, and several Masters and Ph.D. Graduates successfully applied these codes during their candidature.
