Ramesh Balakrishnan from Argonne presented this talk at the Stanford HPC Conference. “The main scientific challenge in fluid dynamics remains that of gaining better insight into the physics of turbulence and its role in the transfer of momentum, heat, and mass in engineering applications which include the aerodynamics of high lift devices, chemically reacting flows in combustion systems, such as combustors of jet engines, and the aeroacoustics of low and high speed flows.”
Babek Hejazialhosseini from ETH presented this talk at the Stanford HPC Conference. “This talk outlines the challenges that hinder the effective solution of complex flows on contemporary supercomputers. It demonstrates several generalizable techniques towards achieving unprecedented performance on both IBM Blue Gene/Q and Cray supercomputers. Simulation of cloud cavitation collapse, a challenging flow problem with a broad range of applications, is presented.”
The Science and Technology Facilities Council (STFC) and London-based Maxeler Technologies are collaborating in a project funded by the UK Department of Business Innovation and Skills to install the next generation of supercomputing technology in a new facility at the Daresbury Laboratory focusing on energy efficient supercomputing to enable UK industry to have the edge in using a technology designed for the move towards Exascale computing.
