Interoperability between Num3sis and Axel Platforms

Num3sis ( ) is a modular platform devoted to scientific computing and numerical simulation developed at Inria Sophia Antipolis Mediterranee Center. It is not restricted to a particular application field, but is designed to host complex multidisciplinary simulations. Main application fields are currently Computational Fluid Dynamics and pedestrian traffic simulation (by Acumes team), Computational Electro-Magnetics (by Nachos project-team). Some components of the platform are also used by Tosca project-team for CO2 market simulation and wind simulation (in collaboration with Ciric Inria-Chile), and by Inria Project-Lab C2S@EXA for high-performance computing applications. Finally, Lemon team will initiate developments for costal environment simulation in a near future.

To facilitate the coupling between simulation and CAD (Computer-Aided Design), a refactoring of the grid management has been achieved (supported by ADT Simon). This allows interoperability between num3sis and Axel platform, which is developed by Galaad team and is devoted to algebraic geometry. From a practical point of view, grids generated by Axel can now be used by Num3sis for simulation, while PDE solvers in Num3sis libraries can by used interactively by Axel to simulate physical problems.
