Main project: A pre-exascale Vortex Particle-mesh solver for complex Fluid-Structure Interaction problems.
Supervisor(s): Philippe Chatelain, Jean-François Remacle
We present an accurate and highly scalable vortex particle method builds upon a Multi-Resolution discretization (MR), an Immersed Interface Method (IIM) and efficient elliptic solvers to simulate bio-inspired locomotion in 3D. This project is intended to bring all the mentioned approaches together to the next scale of computational intensity and concurrency. The consistency between our Lagrangian formulation, these advanced numerical frameworks and a HPC-oriented implementation should unlock the full potential of Belgium’s next generation HPC architectures and thus, enable a leap in the scale of computable problems.
