The mathematical methods and the numerical algorithms developed in the team-projects or in the labs associated with the ISCD are collected and, if needed, optimized by the engineers at ISCD. The software packages are disseminated, mostly as open-source software, into the scientific community. A selection of these packages is given hereafter:
Tinker-HP is a free molecular dynamics software package developed by Prof. Piquemal’s group at LCT-ISCD for solving for multiscale simulations of large complex systems with advanced polarizable force fields on parallel computers.
Basilisk-Gerris Flow Solver
Basilisk is a free software developed by Stephane Popinet et al. at D’Alembert laboratory (SU), for the solution of partial differential equations on adaptive Cartesian meshes.
MMG Mesh Adaptation
Mmg is an open source software for simplicial remeshing and mesh adaptation. An open-source consortium project is ensuring that Mmg remains a non-competitive and multidisciplinary tool as well as a research framework.
ISCD Toolbox Repository
This toolbox repository provides a collection of open-source finite element solvers for solving Partial Differential Equations on unstructured meshes (fluid mechanics, elasticity, shape optimization, transport).
The team leaders and the researchers at the ISCD have been successful in raising funding through different types of grants, including grants for large collaborative research (Programme Investissements d’Avenir). Over the last five years, the yearly amount of third-party funding represents more than 3 times the endowment of the ISCD.
