Purpose and focus of the Pilot Centre

The Belgian Pilot Centre has currently 8 members. Common research projects involve:

  • Experimental and numerical analysis of the turbulence structure in expanding swirling flows
  • Simulation of turbulent non-premixed combustion with CMC models in combination with LES techniques
  • Computational aeroacoustics for confined flows
  • Development of simulation models for two-phase flow
  • Development of non-deterministic methods for the incorporation of uncertainties in CFD predictions
  • Simulation of wake vortex dynamic
  • Simulation and validation of flows in turbo machinery
  • Development of unstructured high-accuracy methods for DNS & LES


Members of the centre participate in the following SIGs:

  • Large Eddy Simulation 
  • Transition Modelling
  • Reactive Flows
  • Microscale heat transfer
