Welcome to Code_Saturne

Welcome to Code_Saturne

Code_Saturne solves the Navier-Stokes equations for 2D, 2D-axisymmetric and 3D flows, steady or unsteady, laminar or turbulent, incompressible or weakly dilatable, isothermal or not, with scalars transport if required.

Several turbulence models are available, from Reynolds-Averaged models to Large-Eddy Simulation models. In addition, a number of specific physical models are also available as "modules": gas, coal and heavy-fuel oil combustion, semi-transparent radiative transfer, particle-tracking with Lagrangian modeling, Joule effect, electrics arcs, weakly compressible flows, atmospheric flows, rotor/stator interaction for hydraulic machines.

Code_Saturne is an open source CFD software.

The latest news

  • A new tutorial

    11 Feb 2014

    A new tutorial is available for download. It explains how to perform a Lagrangian simulation of pulverised coal combustion using Code_Saturne. This is an example of simulation of biomass slagging in a co-combustion (coal /biomass) case where most of the pulverized fuel remains coal (90% of injected mass).
