HPC and Simulation Impacts on Engineering Process

LaBS: from research to industry; a new CFD software based on the lattice Boltzmann Method

LaBS is a Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) tool based on the lattice Boltzmann method and optimized for high performance computing. It allows simulating weakly compressible flows around and inside highly complex geometries. Thanks to its high precision and remarkable performances, LaBS is currently deployed in the automotive and aeronautical industries for aerodynamics and aeroacoustics.

The software suite was developed in the framework of a FUI8 research project, by a consortium of industrial companies and research institutes including CS SI, Renault and Airbus.

LaBS continues to be developed in the framework of the research project CLIMB which is funded by the Fond National pour la Société Numérique. The main purpose of the project is to develop tools and HPC methods allowing multi-physics fluid simulations. 

By bringing together all the actors of the entire value chain, the project’s ambition is to develop and assemble the technological bricks of the following domains:  

  • High performance computing: next-generation processors, infrastructure management, HPC services
  • Computational fluid dynamics: algorithms and physical modeling, specific pre and post-processing,
  • Multi-physics industrial applications : software coupling, complex workflows
Elias Tannoury, LaBS Product Manager: Mr. Tannoury holds a PhD in aeroacoustics from Arts et Metiers ParisTech (ENSAM). He joined CS SI in 2013 as the aeroacoustic simulation leader before becoming the product manager of LaBS. He was previously a research and development engineer at Valeo Thermal Systems and at Danielson Engineering.  .
