Leveraging the performance of LBM-HPC for large sizes on GPUs using ghost cells
Today, we are living a growing demand of larger and more efficient computational resources from the scientific community. On the other hand, the appearance of GPUs for general purpose computing supposed an important advance ...
Numerical investigation of the aerodynamic performance for a wells-type turbine in a wave energy converter
Ocean waves constitute an extensive energy resource, whose extraction has been the subject of intense research activity in the last three decades. Among the different variants of Wave Energy Converters, the principle of ...
Accelerating fluid-solid simulations (Lattice-Boltzmann & Immersed-Boundary) on heterogeneous architectures
We propose a numerical approach based on the Lattice-Boltzmann (LBM) and Immersed Boundary (IB) methods to tackle the problem of the interaction of solids with an incompressible fluid flow, and its implementation on ...
Aerodynamic study of a tricycle wheel subsystem for drag reduction
This paper deals with a computational fluid dynamics (CFD) and experimental drag analysis on an isolated rotating wheel subsystem (including its accessories: tire, suspension, A-arms, and fender) of a motor tricycle vehicle ...
