High Performance Learning for Aeronautical Flow Physics
Developing innovative Artificial Intelligence techniques to tackle fluid mechanics and aerodynamics problems


I currently lead research at DAEP to develop AI-based CFD solvers. Some part of the CFD solvers are replaced by a deep neural network. It contribute to the effort of improving the performance of CFD codes, especially on GPUs. This activity is realized in collaboration with AI experts (Jolibrain) and Cerfacs (Helios group : http://cerfacs.fr/helios/)

Current PhDs :
- Antonio Alguacil : Developing new solvers for acoustic propagation.
- Ekhi Ajuria : Developing AI-based incompressible solvers.


Part of the AI activity is dedicated to flow reconstruction. In particular, denoising problems and missing data reconstruction are under investigation. First results on denoising and pressure reconstruction from PIV measurements show promising possibilities for deep learning to complement CFD and experiment in fluid mechanics.


Prospective works are carried out to apply AI techniques to develop new optimization procedures. This current work is sustained by 2 research master projects and a postdoc fellow funded by DGA (ETAP projet).

Using high-fidelity simulations to investigate aeroacoustics sources and propagation in complex flows

This activity is lead by Marc Jacob accross the whole DAEP groups. My research focuses on using high-fidelity simulations (Navier-Stokes CharlesX and LBM Palabos) to address aeroacoustics problems. Current investigations include :

  • Characterizing high-fidelity codes with acoustic benchmarks
  • Investigation of a jet-pump for propagation of acoustic waves in complex media, in collaboration with Stéphane Moreau from Sherbrooke Univ.
  • Hydrodynamic-Acoustic coupling using forced LES simulations, with applications to cavity flows and vortex-sound.


PostDoc : Innovative methods for acoustic propagation and source detection

Artificial Intelligence (AI) recently emerges in many engineering fields as a new approach to handle complex systems and elaborate physical models. Based on the training of large neural networks, Deep Learning is one of those methods which has shown outstanding results. In fluid mechanics, breakthrough in numerical methods can be expected by using such a technique to develop complex physical models, or accelerating current numerical solvers. Yet, the small amount of studies dedicated to AI for fluid mechanics suggests that progress is still required to make these methods mature and reliable. The department of Aerodynamics, Energetic and Propulsion (DAEP) at ISAE- Supaero is currently applying deep learning techniques to several problems encountered in fluid mechanics, involving data from experiments or numerical simulations. This postdoc position will complement the current team to apply AI to tackle acoustic problems, in . particular :
- the propagation of acoustic waves in complex media, complementing the PhD. of Antonio Alguacil
- the experimental detection of acoustic sources
This postdoc will involve both simulations, experiments in the Anechoic chamber at Supaéro, and deep learning techniques.The position is for maximum 3 years. Application can be sent to michael.bauerheim isae-supaero.fr
