In this report we describe the integration of the FEMLCORE code in the SALOME platform. The SALOME platform is an open source tool that has a CAD, a mesh generator and a visualization software integrated for model development. This integration represents a main step in the direction of coupling FEMLCORE with a nuclear system code like CATHARE, in order to drive three-dimensional simulation with boundary conditions obtained with the system code. The CATHARE/SALOME interface is developed by CEA and EDF and it can be used only under private agreement. We substitute CATHARE with a mono dimensional code based on the SALOME integrated libMesh library which is open-source software. CEA and EDF originally developed the libMesh-SALOME interface for Laplacian and Linear Elastic two-dimensional solutions. Here we present 3D-CFD/3D-CFD coupling for energy and Navier Stokes with libMesh and FEMus libraries. Simulations with FEMLCORE (3D-porous) and the FEMUS interface are presented where the interface is used to transfer data for heat generation and pressure loss analytical distributions. Finally a 3D-porous/1D-porous coupling FEMLCORE/libMesh is presented.

Abstract

In this report we describe the integration of the FEMLCORE code in the SALOME platform. The SALOME platform is an open source tool that has a CAD, a mesh generator and a visualization software integrated for model development. This integration represents a main step in the direction of coupling FEMLCORE with a nuclear system code like CATHARE, in order to drive three-dimensional simulation with boundary conditions obtained with the system code. The CATHARE/SALOME interface is developed by CEA and EDF and it can be used only under private agreement. We substitute CATHARE with a mono dimensional code based on the SALOME integrated libMesh library which is open-source software. CEA and EDF originally developed the libMesh-SALOME interface for Laplacian and Linear Elastic two-dimensional solutions. Here we present 3D-CFD/3D-CFD coupling for energy and Navier Stokes with libMesh and FEMus libraries. Simulations with FEMLCORE (3D-porous) and the FEMUS interface are presented where the interface is used to transfer data for heat generation and pressure loss analytical distributions. Finally a 3D-porous/1D-porous coupling FEMLCORE/libMesh is presented.
