Numerical modeling of large scales and long time

Abstract : Fluid-Structure Interaction (FSI) describes a wide variety of industrial problems arising in mechanical engineering, civil engineering and biomechanics. In spite of the available computer performance and the actual maturity of computational fluid dynamics and computational structural dynamics, several key issues still prevent accurate FSI simulations.Two main approaches for the simulation of FSI problems are still gaining attention lately: partitioned and monolithic approaches. Results in the literature show that the partitioned approach is accurate and efficient but some instabilities may occur depending on the ratio of the densities and the complexity of the geometry. Monolithic methods are still of interest due to their capability to treat the interaction of the fluid and the structure using a unified formulation. In fact it makes the build up of a FSI problem easier as the mesh do not have to fit the geometry of the solids and the transfers are treated naturally.The software Thost has been created based on these analyzes. Thost is a 3D aerothermal numerical software. It has been developped for the numerical simulation of industrial processes like the heating in industrial furnaces as well as quenching. Its target is to model numericaly the thermal history of the industrial pieces in their environment without using any transfer coefficient. However the computational costs are still high and therefore the software is not fully efficient from an industrial point of view to simulate, analize and improve complex processes. All the work in this PhD thesis has been done to reduce the computational costs and optimize the accuracy of the simulations in Thost based on innovatives numerical methods such as dynamic anisotropic mesh adaptation, stabilized finite elements methods and immersing the objects directly from their Computer Aided Design files.
