Brown University in Rhode Island is seeking an Executive Director for their Center for Computation and Visualization in our Job of the Week.
This simulation visualizes a coaxial jet flow as it can be found in the exhaust of modern jet engines that are used for aircraft propulsion. The visualization highlights the flow instability process and the transition from laminar to turbulent flow. Intensive mixing between the heated primary jet and the cold bypass flow lead to strong noise radiation.
“The goal at Airbus is to create a single fully integrated simulation-driven design process. He explained that they are developing simulation to the point where it is implemented from “conceptual design, to detailed design, all the way to the certification of the aircraft and finally to the continued development of the aircraft.”
“The use of GPUs to accelerate applications is mainstream nowadays, but their adoption in current high performance computing clusters is primarily impaired by the trend of including accelerators in all the nodes of the cluster, as this presents several drawbacks related with increased costs. In this talk we introduce the remote GPU virtualization mechanism, intended to address the drawbacks of GPU computing. The rCUDA remote GPU virtualization framework will also be presented.”
