How do you think Code_sature:

http://www.edf.fr/72495i/Accueil-fr/...hargement.html

A little like KIVA. I want to use it to study gas-solid flow. The problem is much information about it is given in French.

Any suggestion is appreciated.

Regards, David

David,

what do you want to know about it's code ?

Maybe you can write to the saturn_code task force (in english).

Thanks. I am trying to contact the research group who releases the code. The theory for the code is well documented mainly in French. I plan to move on if the the part (Lagrangian tracking) is what I have expected. I guess some guy here should have some idea about it.

Hi guys,

I am currently trying to get used to this software developped by EDF, since i already worked with their FEM software Aster and their CAD software Salome and i really like their work.

The bright side for you is that i am french, so if you need some translation on some points of the user guide, you can ask and i will help you.

Cheers

Hello,

I am part of the Code_Saturne developpement team (though I only have basic knowledge of the Lagrangian part, so I may only answer relatively general questions on this aspect).

The user documentation is basically fully translated to English (though some paragraphs seem to have been through automatic translation, everything should be corrected by the time 1.3.2 comes out around the end of the year). There is no current effort that I know of to translate the more detailed parts of the theoretical documentation, though new documents should be in English from the start.

The best way to contact the team is through the saturne-support@edf.fr e-mail. Some of us occasionally visit forums such as this one, but you can more predictably expect an answer within a few days using the main support address (hopefully, we'll have a more dynamic web page within a few months, with either a forum or a mailing list, but this is not quite ready yet).

Best regards, Yvan Fournier

The nice fact about this thread is that it introduces some excellent open source codes. Thanks to all who contribute to such programmes SALOME team in special

Code_turne vs. openfoam, which is the best for research platform. I am try to find a code to solve single-phase flow, and integrate my own code into. I am not professional to CFD, but have written some simple strucutured and unstructured CFD codes by myself.

I am also interested in this topic, particularly with the opinion of somebody who has worked with both codes.

I have experience with OpenFOAM, and can see how the object orientation allows to structure the code. A particular question would be: is it easier to customize OpenFOAM or Code Saturne ?

Thanks

Hi John,

As a member of Code_Saturne development team, I'll try to give you a "not too biased" view of Code_Saturne capability for customization.

Basic setup ca be done through a graphical user interface, though this is not mandatory. The code provides the user with some hooks to customize your simulation, this is done by user subroutine written in Fortran (free-formed for the latest version).

If you need to implement a model, say a turbulent model, you might need to read deeper in the code... but not necessarily! If you just want to solve a new convection-diffusion equation for a scalar, or the variance of a scalar, you only need to "add" this scalar with the generic option, and specify the source term through a user subroutine.

That said the difficult point is that code comments are still in French for the physical / numerical part (the lowest layers like I/O, mesh management, coupling management, parallelism have been written in English from start). We are in the process of translating in English code comments and the theory manual (the part still in French), but it takes time... We hope to have it done for the next version due early next year.

If you need more details, you could perhaps let us know the type of customization you want to do, or contact Code_Saturne support (a contact form is available on Code_Saturne website http://www.code-saturne.org).

I hope it helped ;-)

Kind regards,
David

Salut,
est-ce que tu connais Fluent?
si oui, pourrais-tu me dire quelques avantages (ou differences) qui a Saturn, par raport a Fluent?
Pourrais-je faire une liaison entre la propagation d'ondes sonores et le model de l'ecoulement turbulente, ou quelque chose similaire, a l'aide de Saturn?
Merci cordialement,
Petrut Teodor.
