Our research relies on building new computational methods to address new engineering problems. That means we write our own codes and go through rigorous exercises of software design, development and testing. We advocate the use of version control and keep our codes on git servers. We also collaborate with others, such as the SU2, Nektar++, and Incompact3D projects for our work on high-fidelity fluid-structure interaction and multidisciplinary optimization. Our purpose is to share our codes with the wider community once they are sufficiently mature for others to benefit from it. The codes below are (or will be shortly) available for others to use under a BSD open-source license.
|SHARPy||Simulation of High-Aspect Ratio Planes (and HAWT)||del Carre, Goizueta, Muñoz||Hesse, Murua, Simpson, Maraniello|
|Nektar++||High-order spectral/finite-element CFD for flow around complex geometries||Bao|
|SU2||Aerodynamic optimization and FSI||Gomes, Venkatesan-Crome||Sanchez|
|Incompact3D||High-order finite-difference incompressible CFD for wind farm simulation||Deskos|
Most of our research is sponsored by the UK Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council and as such we have the commitment to make freely and openly available our research data. While we monitor the development of the college policy on data management, the only effective way to distribute any data files is via direct request, so please contact us at email@example.com and we will do our best to reply promptly.
