Road and Scouts: a versioning strategy for large Research software.

Versioning of large research software applications for industry can be sloppy because audiences have different needs. End-users require a clear official version, while research asks for many exploratory versions.

Born in the 1990s, AVBP is combustion software used and developed today by dozens of industrial users and researchers simultaneously. This post will consider whether it is suitable for a semantic versioning strategy.

The use of in-situ analysis tools by EXCELLERAT

Paraview-Catalyst is widely used to perform in-situ visualisation, as in the case of OpenFOAM and Code-Saturne. However, one needs An appropriate version of Paraview-Catalyst on the computer system, the code must be instrumented to transfer its data towards Catalyst, and one usually needs a Python script automatically produced by Paraview.
