Large Eddy Simulation (LES)
CENTAUR has been used to create meshes for LES cases involving complex geometries. The ability to easily create large, high quality meshes is key to successful LES applications. CENTAUR also allows for the minimum element volume to be explicitly controlled thus preventing time scale limitations imposed by small elements. Parallel mesh generation allows for the large meshes needed for LES to be generated in a reasonable time. Some examples of successful LES runs performed using CENTAUR grids are shown below.
For more information on the technical features of CENTAUR, please see the Grid Generator section of our web site.
