High Performance Computing of flows around hydrofoils
Hydrocontest is a student competition involving teams from different universities around Switzerland and the world. This projects aims at providing an analysis of the performances of hydrofoils by means of computational fluid dynamics in a High Performance Computing context. The numerical scheme is based on the Finite Elements method for the spatial approximation of the Navier-Stokes equations, while on Backward Differentiation Formulas for the time discretization. The numerical implementation is performed in the parallel Finite Elements library LifeV.
