We have recently performed some tests of the Nektar++ incompressible Navier-Stokes solver on a Formula 1 car geometry. The tests were run on Mira up to 131k cores and show excellent scaling of of the code for massively parallel simulations.
Nektar++ has been used to investigate the incompressible flow around wings with spanwise waviness, using direct numerical simulations at different Reynolds numbers. The waviness was imposed by a coordinate transformation, using a novel technique presented in our JCP paper (1). This global mapping allowed us to consider a 2.5D problem, leading to significant advantages in terms […]
