Abstract: A numerical technique for mesh refinement in the HeaRT (Heat Release and Turbulence) numerical code is presented. In the CFD framework, Large Eddy Simulation (LES) approach is gaining in importance as a tool for simulating turbulent combustion processes, also if this approach has an high computational cost due to the complexity of the turbulent modeling and the high number of grid points necessary to obtain a good numerical solution. In particular, when a numerical simulation of a big domain is performed with a structured grid, the number of grid points can increase so much that the simulation becomes impossible: this problem can be overcomed with a mesh refinement technique. Mesh refinement technique developed for HeaRT numerical code (a staggered finite difference code) is based on an high order reconstruction of the variables at the grid interfaces by means of a moving least square interpolation: numerical code is written in modern Fortran (2003 standard of newer) and is parallelized using domain decomposition and message passing interface (MPI) standard. The multi-resolution algorithm is been validated by the comparison with DNS and LES data.

Skills short description: My personal skills are High Performance Computing in Fortran 90/95/2003 with OpenMP and MPI paradigms, debugging of codes with GNU Debugger and Intel Debugger, versioning control with GIT and SVN and scientific data analisys with Tecplot and Paraview; I've also a limited knowledge of C, Python and OpenFOAM. From the numerical point of view, my personal skills are numerical compressible codes, with reacting and non-reacting flows, with staggered or collocated variables, on structured cartesian and cylindrical meshes, Godunov numerical schemes with linear and ENO, WENO, MUSCL reconstructions, Riemann solvers (exact, Roe, HLL, HLLC), LES simulations.
