LBRG offers course on parallel computing in winter semester 2024/2025

In the winter semester 2024/2025, the LBRG will offer a course on parallel computing. Motivated by the increasing compute power of modern parallel hardware, the course will cover topics such as: parallel programming models, parallel solving of linear equation systems, parallel finite element/volume/difference methods, parallel lattice Boltzmann methods, domain decomposition, load balancing, parallel linear algebra operations, convergence and parallel cost analysis. Besides, applications in natural and engineering sciences are also studied. A focus is placed on efficient parallel algorithms to take advantage of massively parallel computers and enable novel physical insights, ground truth simulations or large-scale predictions.

New Video on our upcoming Fluid Structure Interaction module

We have just released a new video on our OpenLB YouTube Channel. This is a first experimental showcase of OpenLB’s upcoming general purpose fluid structure interaction (FSI) capabilities. Visualized are various viewpoints on the vorticity norm of a two-way coupled four-turbine wind park setup with Reynolds number 1.2 Million. The simulation consisting of 1.5 billion cells utilized a single accelerated compute node of 4x NVIDIA H100 GPGPUs.
Computed on HoreKa Teal at KIT, the world’s sixth most energy efficient supercomputer.
Simulation & Visualization by Adrian Kummerländer
Visualization was generated in ParaView.

Prof. Dr. Eduard Feireisl visited the LBRG

On June 14, 2024, the LBRG had the honor to host Prof. Dr. Eduard Feireisl (Czech Academy of Sciences, https://www.math.cas.cz/index.php/members/researcher/37) for a short research visit.

He gave a talk on dynamic homogenization of incompressible fluid flows (see https://arxiv.org/html/2404.06782v1) and worked together with Dr. Stephan Simonis, Adrian Kummerländer, Julius Jeßberger and PD Dr. Mathias J. Krause towards the numerical analysis of homogenized lattice Boltzmann methods (see https://arxiv.org/abs/2310.14746) for fluid structure interaction problems.
