CFD Codes and Facilities


The in-house Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) code at the University of Sydney called FLAMENCO (Flow Analysis and Modelling Environment with Combustion) is a massively parallel fully compressible structured multi-block solver with RANS, LES and DES models. The base numerical methods employed range from first through to fifth order spatial accuracy and up to third order accurate in time. The underlying algorithms have been validated extensively in complex flows such as turbulent mixing problems, scramjet intakes, aero-acoustics of cavity flows, shock-boundary layer interaction, rocket nozzles, ship airwakes and combustion.
