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.

A practical introduction to open source CFD with Code_Saturne and SALOME in London

Based around the general CFD solver, Code_Saturne, and the suite of pre and post-processing tools, SALOME, the course covers:

  • Fundamentals of CFD and recommended best practices for CFD analysis
  • Presentation of the chain of open-source tools to carry out a full CFD analysis:
    • CAD
    • Meshing
    • Setting up a physical and numerical model and solving
    • Visualisation and analysis
  • Practical application tutorial

The objective of the course is to enable participants to undertake a complete CFD cycle, from CAD generation to results analysis using the following open source software:

  • SALOME - geometry generation, meshing, results visualisation and analysis
  • Code_Saturne - simulating the fluid flow and heat transfer
