Simulating complex flows at multiple scales
A uniform platform for high-quality computational fluid dynamics simulations has long been viewed as promising for treating any type of flow. The EU-funded PonD project proposes a novel formulation of fluid dynamics as a kinetic theory, with a small number of tailored, on-demand constructed particles. This formulation could remove any restrictions on flow speeds and temperatures, delivering for the first time seamless and universal computation of any type of flow, from high Knudsen number rarefied gas flow to supersonic flow and turbulence. This particle-on-demand approach will be demonstrated in a wide spectrum of multiscale problems, including atmospheric reentry and geostrophic turbulence.
