Overview of Research
- Advanced computing for material forming
- Error estimator and mesh generation
- MultiScale and Stabilized finite Element Methods for Multiphysics Problems
- Incompressible flows
- Conjugate Heat Transfer
- MultiPhase flow & monolithic approaches
- Fluid-Structure Interaction
- Convected LevelSet method


► The main activity of the CIM research group is to answer to the problems appearing in finite element simulation of industrial processes. It involves the development of numerical methods to efficiently model physical phenomena at different scales. The base of all numerical applications developed in the team is the scientific finite element library (CimLib).

1- Development of advanced numerical methods:


Interface capturing using a convected Levelset method applied for mold filling of viscous/turbulent flows: 

Numerical simulation of fluid buckling using a fixed mesh
fluidb

Numerical simulation of fluid buckling using anisotropic mesh adaptation
fluidbmesh
 


2- Development of a scientific parallel finite element library


C++ CimLib scientific library gathers the numerical developments of the group. A meta-language allows the use of CimLib to build an application dedicated to a process or a material.

3- Development of different applications for materials and processes in collaboration with:


Dr. Luisa Da Silva, Dr. Rudy Valette, Dr. Hugues Digonnet, Dr. Marc Bernacki, Dr. Patrice Laure, Dr. Lionel Fourment & Dr. Elie Hachem. Here is a sample of industrial softwares:
