Scai Department @ CINECA in collaboration with DIEF (Dipartimento di Ing. Enzo Ferrari, Università di Modena e Reggio Emilia) and the MIMESIS (fluid dynamics & energy company) is going to run, on the PLX cluster, a flexible and versatile full-scale CFD modelling strategy of the airflow in a road tunnel. This study is applied to the case of the Mont-Blanc tunnel on behalf of the GEIE_TMB (Gruppo Europeo di Interesse Economico del Traforo del Monte Bianco).
The final model assembled consists of around 200 M of cells. The simulations will be carried out with the use of the open-source suite OpenFOAM.
