Advanced CFD and Practical HPC Considerations

Announcements If you plan to attend The International Supercomputing Conference (ISC) please participate in the Birds of a Feather (BoF) session Advanced CFD and Practical HPC Considerations on 26 Jun 09, which will examine HPC cluster requirements for high-fidelity CFD modeling and simulation, featuring panel discussion from ANSYS, CD-adapco, Clemson's CCMS, Renault F1 Team, and Panasas.

Motivation for the BoF is to review how parallel efficiency and overall simulation turn-around time continues to be a determining factor behind scientific and engineering decisions to develop CFD models at higher fidelity. And while the pay-off in recent years of CFD vs. the alternative of physical experimentation has been remarkable, the maturity of parallel CFD solvers and availability of inexpensive and scalable HPC clusters has not been enough to advance most CFD practice beyond steady state modeling.

The physical characteristics of fluids are inherently unsteady, yet to model such complex flows at a practical HPC scale for industry requires parallel efficiency of both solvers and data I/O. For advanced CFD modeling in areas such as URANS, LES, aeroacoustics and others, data I/O can severely degrade simulation scalability and limit overall CFD effectiveness. This BoF will examine the current state of parallel CFD solver development and parallel I/O for HPC clusters at industry-scale. BoF members comprise CFD experts from commercial CFD software developers ANSYS and CD-adapco, and HPC practitioners who deploy both commercial and research-developed CFD software for industry application.
