Code_Saturne

Code_Saturne is an open source general purpose computational fluid dynamics software package developed by EDF. It is based on a co-located Finite Volume approach that accepts meshes with any type of cell, including tetrahedral, hexahedral, prismatic, pyramidal, polyhedral and any type of grid structure, including unstructured, block structured, hybrid, conforming or with hanging nodes. Its basic capabilities enable the handling of either incompressible or expandable flows with or without heat transfer and turbulence (mixing length, 2-equation models, v2f, Reynolds stress models, Large Eddy Simulations etc.). Dedicated modules are available for specific physics such as radiative heat transfer, combustion (e.g. gas, coal), magneto-hydro dynamics, compressible flows, two-phase flows (Euler-Lagrange approach with two-way coupling) with extensions to specific applications (e.g. for atmospheric environment: code Mercure_Saturne). Further information can be found at the Code_Saturne website.

Code_Saturne is freely available on HPCx. Any users interested in using the package should send a query to the Helpdesk to obtain usage instructions.
