Advancing Strong-Scaling CFD Simulations on Manycore HPC Hardware
Science and engineering companies rely on powerful computers to simulate, in virtual space, the performance of new processes and products. The computer architectures of these systems are evolving to provide even faster virtual solutions with less energy requirements. This hardware evolution impacts software design and implementation of simulation tools such as Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD). The intern’s project involves software design and implementation related to novel CPU/GPU parallel computers and the CFD software used by the partner organization. The CFD software is essential to product development activities requiring efficient use of powerful supercomputers.
