There has been a significant increase in the development and use of high performance computing
and next generation architectures such as Graphics
Processing Units (GPUs) in computational fluid dynamics. These
developments have the potential to provide enormous efficiency gains over the traditional
Central Processing Unit (CPU) allowing for improved prediction and insight into complex
physical systems. This mini-symposium aims to provide a forum for industry and academia to share
experiences in developing and applying their simulation science to computing platforms
other than the traditional CPU.
Topics for this symposium include:
- Fluid-structure interaction,
- Multi-phase flows,
- Multi-scale, multi-physics modelling,
- Developments in mesh-based and mesh-less algorithms for GPUs and
- Transitioning from the CPU in large-scale industrial codes,
- CFD, computational electro-magnetics, environmental science, bio-engineering,
applications in high performance computing.
