Flow library on the web network


The FLOWNET initiative is intended to provide the scientific and industrial communities with a code validation tool for flow modelling and computational/experimental methods (subsonic. transonic, supersonic and hypersonic regimes). Such scientific development constitutes a crucial and mandatory step in the industrial validation. By means of network databases, multi-disciplinary knowledge is cross fertilized and archived. It provides share of technical complements (test case definitions, experiments models grids, codes, etc) to scientists and engineers. It enhances quality trust in the pre-industrial process. The ultimate goal of the network is to bring together academic and industrial node partners in a dynamical open way to evaluate continuously in terms of accuracy and efficiency the quality and performance of CFD software for improving complex design in industry. Six kernel members (INRIA. Dassault Aviation. DASA, CIRA. DLR, Univ. of Roma) are sharing academic, technological and industrial FLOWNET responsabilities including: -installation of database and integration of experimental/computational data, -coordination and management of industrial/academic node partners, -workshops, -evaluation and integration of available experiments, -Short Courses, Seminars and Trainings, -integration and quality assessment of data related to industrial test cases. The twenty six nodes (INRIA. Dassault Aviation, DASA. CIRA, DLR, Univ.of Roma, ALENIA, BAe, EGT. SAAB, SENER, ONERA, EPFL, IUSTI,. LEA, Politecnico TORINO, RWTH. Univ Lyon1, VUB, HTG, VKI, NTUA, HAI, Carlos III Madrid, ABB, SMR) of the network originate mainly from Industries. SMEs. Laboratories and Universities. They will provide experimental and/or computational data for a better understanding of flows and their associated software in aerospace design. propulsion and wind energy applications. The kernel and selected partners have been involved in many international database workshops and have demonstrated academic/industrial expertize in code validation strategies in various European projects or recognized associations. The substantial benefit to an institution in operating FLOWNET is the sharing of its own knowledge in flow modelling. Computing and experimenting with other institutions involved in similar research or industrial activities. This will he enhanced by the setting up of a Web site where all TN partners will exchange continuously experiences.
