Organization activites

CERFACS is a research organization that aims to develop advanced methods for the numerical simulation and algorithmic solutions of large scientific and technological problems of interest for research as well as industry, and that requires access to powerful computers. Large Eddy Simulation of reacting and non-reacting turbulent flows in complex geometries. Coupled simulations of multi-physics problems including heat transfer, and multi-phase flows and flames).

CERFACS hosts interdisciplinary teams, both for research and advanced training that are comprised of physicists, applied mathematicians, numerical analysts, and software engineers. Approximately 100 people work at CERFACS, including about 90 researchers and engineers, coming from 10 different countries. Several interns can also be found in the laboratory .
