HPC methods for Computational Fluid Dynamics and Astrophysics

You are here

Description:

The aim of this workshop is to present the HPC numerical methods used in the fields of Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) and Numerical Astrophysics. The workshop aims to share the methodologies, numerical methods and their implementation used by the state-of-the-art codes in the HPC environment. Key-note lectures will present the challenges of numerically solving Partial Differential Equations (PDE) in problems related to fluid/hydrodynamics, using massively parallel clusters. The workshop will focus on state-of the art of the different HPC architecture and the related numerical methods. Lecture topics will highlight major areas of Numerical Astrophysics and CFD including N-body dynamics, hydrodynamics/magnetohydrodynamics, relativistic hydrodynamics and magnetohydrodynamics, compressible and incompressible flows, turbulence, multi-phase flows and computational tools (visualization and parallel computing), etc.... For each area state-of-the-art codes used by the community/research group will be described. The key-note lectures will be based on the forefront numerical techniques within the aforementioned areas, and a follow-up will be partially devoted to hands-on experiences, where the participants will be invited to share their knowledge, by opened discussion. Further information will be available later for participants upon confirmations of the speakers.
