Saint Venant - 2D periodic Shallow Water and Navier-Stokes solver
The package SAINT-VENANT solves the Saint-Venant (Shallow Water) and Navier-Stokes
equations in 2D periodic domains using a pseudo-spectral Fourier method. The presence
of solid boundaries can be accounted for by using the volume penalization method. Apart
from the simulation unit, the package also contains tools allowing for generation of
MPEG movies and extensive analysis of obtained field using wavelet and Fourier techniques.
The package is the result of a team work coordinated by Marie Farge:
Marie Farge developed the first version, written in Fortran77, from 1981
until 1987; detailed information about the content of the code is
available in her 'These d'Etat', Universite Paris VI, 25 November 1987,
in 2000 Alexandre Azzalini converted the code into Fortran90 and added
the penalization part in collaboration with Gaele Perret; detailed
information about the implementation of penalization is available
in his 'These de doctorat', Universite Paris VI, 17 December 2004,
in 2004 Bartek Protas added the incompressible case.
This is the first release of the package and we are aware that there may still
be many imperfections, as certain elements of the package are incomplete, whereas
other may have not been thoroughly tested. As time permits, we will work to expand
the package and make it more reliable. We encourage people to use this code for
research and / or study and look forward to receiving any comments, remarks,
suggestions for improvement, etc.
The package consists of the following three parts:
Tarball containing the complete distribution, including all source files, libraries,
Tarball containing a sample test case.
Here are some sample animations showing evolutions of
velocity modulus, and
fields obtained in a 1024x1024 simulation of decaying incompressible 2D turbulence.
