Events: New GRID WARS Contest Now Open
Posted Tue October 21, 2003 @01:31PM
Print version Email story Tweet story
Announcements Engineered Intelligence Corporation (EI) announced a new version of the popular GRID WARS parallel programming challenge, where competing programs written in CxC (“C by C”) fight for survival of the fittest in a grid of processors, will be held live in EI’s Booth #2019 at the SC2003 Conference in Phoenix, November 18-21. HP and Microsoft are sponsoring “GRID WARS Interactive” and are providing the computing platform and prizes.

In EI’s booth, attendees will select from warriors submitted through and have their choices loaded into a live GRID WARS Interactive battle, where they will fight for control of virtual parallel processors. Attendees who select winning warriors will be awarded prizes from HP and Microsoft.

Those interested in parallel computing can enter warriors by downloading the Grid Wars Interactive challenge kit from, which includes ALL previously submitted warriors. Prizes will be awarded to those who submit the most winning warriors at SC2003. Details available on the web site.

Drag Prediction Workshop Results Available
Posted Mon October 20, 2003 @08:14AM

News The results from the 2nd AIAA CFD Drag Prediction Workshop held in Orlando, Florida June 21-22, 2003 are available.

The workshop had the goal of assessing the state of the art CFD for semi-complex aircraft geometries and consisted of two required and two optional cases using the DLR-F6 [pdf] civil transport geometry. The F6 geometry includes both a wing-body and a wing-body-nacelle configuration. The two required cases were a grid sensitivity study and calculation of the drag polar, both at Mach 0.75. The optional investigations included tripped versus fully turbulent drag prediction and calculation of drag variation with Mach number.

The 2nd workshop drew 22 participants from the North America, Europe and Asia. A number of different grid types and turbulence models were used to calculate a total of 480 solutions using 1.25 years of CPU time.

Some conclusions [pdf] were that that data scatter was percieved to be less than in the 1st workshop, that medium sized grids (~5M points) are adequate, and that fully turbulent calculations are fine for predicting drag variation with speed.
