Technical University of Munich scientists, working with computational experts at the Leibniz Supercomputing Centre, perform massive simulations focused on understanding turbulent interactions of gas in high-pressure environments.

Despite being among the most researched topics on supercomputers, a fundamental understanding of the effects of turbulent motion on fluid flows still eludes scientists. A new approach developed at TU Darmstadt and running at the Leibniz Supercomputing Centre aims to change that.

Scientists have long used supercomputers to better understand how turbulent flows behave under a variety of conditions. Recognizing a need to include the complex but essential concept of “intermittency” in turbulent flows, researchers at CORIA and RWTH Aachen University used Jülich Supercomputing Centre’s infrastructure to run highly detailed simulations.
