Centrale Nantes & Siemens Digital Industries Software chair on numerical simulation applied to fluid mechanics

The agreement provides for multi-year funding to the tune of several million euros, with the aim of keeping both organisations at the forefront of digital simulation technology using SPH methods.

In the form of five modules, the scientific and technical programme of this new research chair aims to increase the accuracy, speed and robustness of Siemens' "Simcenter SPH Flow" software.
One of the modules involves using artificial intelligence to replace difficult physical equations and find solutions to complex problems.
With the aim of meeting the needs of engineering departments in the creation of new innovative products, three priority fields of application have been identified:
  • fluid flows around vehicles,
  • lubrication of transmissions
  • and the cooling of electrical and electronic systems.
