Announcements The University of Colorado Boulder has been awarded an NSF collaborative research grant to lead the conceptualization of a Computational Fluid Dynamics Software Infrastructure (CDFSI) with input from the broader computational fluid dynamics research community.

A project Kick-Off Workshop will be held May 16 & 17, 2018 at the CU Boulder Campus to introduce CFDSI and bring together leaders across the many software components that define, create, and analyze data from both computations and experiments.

Fluid dynamics is a broad field spanning science and engineering domains including climate, environment, health, transportation, propulsion, and power generation from conventional, alternative, and nuclear sources. By engaging a wide range of experts, CFDSI will develop a rich and extensible set of software that can be applied with a wide range of CFD codes to define, solve, and analyze both computational and experimental data.

The conceptualized institute will provide many benefits to the research community and lower or eliminate the barriers to the adoption powerful simulation, data, and analysis resources. To do so, CFDSI will connect the best research in fluid dynamics to the best research in data science/analytics within a highly sustainable software development environment. Specifically, CFDSI will:

  • Enhance dissemination of fluid dynamics data resources and advances in CFD modeling
  • Facilitate research collaboration-- especially between computational and experimental researchers
  • Enable detailed comparisons among different data sources, and detailed validation of computational models
  • Ease the use of advanced CFD models, methods, and codes in new and complex applications
  • Facilitate advanced analytics, such as uncertainty quantification, data compression and optimization
  • Provide students access to advanced CFD and data resources to enhance both graduate and undergraduate education
  • Improve the sustainability of current and future CFD software, and facilitate the management of the growing body of fluid dynamics data sets

Kickoff Workshop
In this workshop, we want to:

  • Introduce CFDSI
  • Bring together leaders across the many software components that define, create, and analyze data from both computations and experiments
  • Discuss what needs are currently unmet or underserved
  • Discuss what analysis capabilities hold promise but need development to be more broadly used
  • Discuss how the community can better share its existing software
  • Discuss how an institute can facilitate improvement in all of the above,
  • Discuss the five Sub-Community Workshops that will follow in June
  • Discuss goals to achieve by the Mid-term Workshop to be held the Saturday before APS-DFD-18 in Atlanta, GA
  • The specific outcomes we hope to achieve from this workshop are:
  • A refined vision for CFSI that reflects intense community engagement
  • A passionately engaged set of attendees that form not only the foundation for the CFDSI community, but represent strong advocates to communicate this vision through their colleagues to grow the community further
  • A set of long term goals for the institute
  • A set of near-term goals for the conceptualization that demonstrate the promise of the full institute so as to grow confidence within the community in its success
  • Define the five Sub-Community Workshops that will follow in June of 2018
