A project of the French ANR (2020 Call)

The VPFlows project is funded by the Agence Nationale de la Recherche, as part of the AAPG 2020 (PRC) program in the CE 46 panel “Numerical models, simulations, applications”.

Theme: Challenging the numerical simulation of viscoplastic flows: cross-comparison with physical experiments

Project's reference #: ANR-20-CE46-0006

Timeline: it is a 48 months project


Institutional partners:
This project originates form previous programs of the CNRS through:


2020 12 16: Kick-off meeting at the ANR (visio) for CE 46 projects (5' each). VPFlows made its speed-dating.

2021 03 17: Kick-off meeting of VPFlows Project with all team members. Visioconference due to sanitary conditions. It's on.

2021 06 18: Meeting with all team members to work on the Data Management Plan (DMP) and workflow for the VPFlows Project. Visioconference.

2021 08 25: The INSMI announces the creation of the GdR CNRS MathGeoPhy (Math for fluid and solid geophysical surface envelopes) from 2022 to 2026. VPFlows is quite involved in this GdR. More news to come soon.


All publications of the project will be available on the HAL Open Archive Repository.

The project provides a Data Management Plan (DMP) through DMP Opidor.
