Abstract : FLUSEPA is an advanced simulation tool which performs a large panel of aerodynamic studies. It is the unstructured finite-volume solver developed by Airbus Defence & Space company to calculate compressible, multidimensional, unsteady, viscous and reactive flows around bodies in relative motion. The numerical strategy in FLUSEPA is designed for highly compressible flows and keeps its accuracy in non-Cartesian grids. According the desired accuracy, a second-order accurate shock-capturing scheme is generally used for RANS and URANS simulations and a fourth order accurate vortex-centered scheme is used for hybrid RANS/LES simulations. The meshing strategy is based on multi-overlapping grid intersection which is conservative and allows to quickly and properly mesh 3D complex geometries. It can be seen as a CHIMERA strategy without interpolation. Each body is meshed independently and immersed in background grids. MPMD parallelisation of this code is presented.
