A digital twin for in silico experiments

The catalysts developed by IFPEN are often used in fixed-bed reactors where their grains are packed randomly. For testing them in pilot units, one of the challenges is to guarantee representativity at

Wind farms – a more effective layout using modeling

The development of wind farms requires the optimal placement of wind turbines in relation to each other in order to maximize overall production. If the turbines are too close to each other, wake

LES moves to rapid transients for cleaner powertrains

Gasoline direct injection engines emit soot particles during rapid transients. This still poorly understood phenomenon is taken into account during new WLTCsa, aimed at more accurately reproducing
