Slide2

Outline

Multi-Physics Software Suite;

Next-Generation Multiphase Flow Dynamic core (synergy between projects within AMCG);

Emerging Multi-Physics Technologies.

Slide3

AMCG: Multi-Physics Software Suite

Fluidity

(Multiphase)

EVENT (Radiation Transpot)

FETCH (coupled Multiphase and RT)

Fluidity-ICOM (CFD, single phase, multi-material)

Fluidity-Multiphase(CMFD)

VGeST (DEM, FEMDEM)

Radiant (RT)

FETCH-2(couples multiphase,RT and structural response)

Legacy

Fissile solutions, porous media matrix, reactors;

Compressible (with phase change) and incompressible flows;

Simple structural mechanics response (i.e., limited stress failure criteria);Quad/Hex finite elements with CV representation of scalar fields (no parallel adaptivity);

Add an

adaptivity

library which performs topological operations on the mesh, and mesh movement, to optimise the size and shape of elements in response to error measures

Working robustly and efficiently in parallel

Also building an adjoint to the model for data assimilation, sensitivity studies and goal-based error estimationMake use of open source solutions for solvers, preconditioners, I/O, visualisation, etc

Multi-Physics Models

Finite/Discrete Element Methods;

Particle modelling (Newton Law) and structural mechanics (material engineering – stress modelling);

One-/Two-Way coupling with Fluidity;

Used in coastal defence, reservoir fractures and particle flows applications;

But can be potentially used in nuclear engineering (geological waste repository and

stress-induced core fractures and degradation in reactors

)

‘donor’ mesh

‘target’ mesh

‘super mesh’ and mapping from donor mesh

Following construction of the

supermesh

we are able to perform projection operations to achieve conservative, bounded (etc…) interpolation schemes.

Slide15

One-/Two-way coupling of Fluids and Solids (Capturing Interactions)In Fluidity, solid is treated as fluid (multiphase flow)1 mesh for the domain (fluid), 1 mesh for solid: user-friendly as it is easy to generate the meshes of complex solidsUsage of Conservative Interpolation in order to obtain solid's location on the fluids meshExchange of momentum and location between solids and fluid at each time-stepIntroducing third phase: Air (acting as a surface)

sequestration and storage aquifers (PhD student);

Chemical kinetics and thermodynamic equilibrium;

In order to improve of our understanding of a set of SA phenomenology

we need a sophisticated thermo-chemical model framework

within (or coupled to) FETCH2 with a reliable chemical-kinetics library covering:

Chemical reactions and advanced thermodynamics
