Impactful PRISM research

The Platform for Research in Simulation Methods (PRISM, https://prism.ac.uk) is a major research programme based at Imperial encompassing activity in computational science. The main outputs of PRISM are frameworks for encoding composable mathematical abstractions as software, making advances in numerical mathematics practically applicable to a wide range of high-performance real-world applications across industry and in […]

3rd PRISM Workshop on Application of Time-Stepping Techniques

In this workshop we wish to share experiences on application of time-stepping techniques, for example parallel time integration, encapsulation of time integration and implicit time integration. As before the format of the on-line workshop will involve a series of 3 short 15-minutes talks followed by a group discussions and a summary session. The event’s programme […]

Blog: The wake passing effect in LPTs with Nektar++

In a gas turbine engine, the pressure expansion through the high- and low-pressure turbines (LPT) is achieved in a number of subsequent stages. The interaction of multiple stages of rotors and stators is a crucial source of deterministic unsteadiness which has repercussions on the loss production mechanisms, and it is thus of great importance to […]
