In recent years, CNRS-CORIA has developed a massively-parallel Large-Eddy Simulation solver named YALES2 for the study of reactive and two-phase turbulent flows. This finite volume solver is extensively used to model unsteady turbulent flows in complex geometries. It has been specifically tailored for Large-Eddy Simulation with low-dissipation and low-dispersion numerical schemes. It is also capable of isotropic dynamic mesh adaptation of tetrahedral-based meshes. This feature is particularly interesting for the tracking of reaction fronts and liquid/gas interfaces. This code is used by more than 200 engineers and researchers in academia and in the industry.
