Below are descriptions of the primary experimental and computing resources accessible to our group, including the experimental facilities within the Centre for Wind, Waves, and Water. These resources are readily available to both prospective students and collaborators seeking to engage with our team.
The large-eddy simulation (LES) code used by our group is derived from the LESGO code originally created by John Albertson and Marc Parlange. Our version of the code has since undergone significant changes over time, predominately through work led by Marcelo Chamecki. The LES code is written in fortran and is optimized for execution with high-performance computing facilities including the NCI Gadi supercomputer and the University of Sydney Artemis cluster. The code is best suited for simulating turbulence in the atmospheric boundary layer, particularly in the presence of temperature effects that are difficult to capture experimentally.
