Advanced CFD and Turbulence Modelling targeting HPC: Code_Saturne Training Course at Barcelona Supercomputing Centre (BSC, Spain)

The course (sponsored by CECAM and partly by PRACE) will take place on 3-5 October 2018.

The following topics will be dealt with:

  • Fundamentals of CFD, Introduction to turbulence, focusing on Large-Eddy Simulation (LES)
  • Description of the latest fully validated version of Code_Saturne (V5.0) and its structure
  • Using Code_Saturne's GUI
  • Using Code_Saturne's user subroutines
  • Introduction to HPC, with an overview of the code's performance on various types of architectures, including Xeon Phi Knights Landing and GPUs

The following hands-on sessions will be delivered first:

  • Hands-on Session: laminar flow through tube bundles using the GUI
  • Hands-on Session: LES of flow through tube bundles with GUI
  • Hands-on Session: LES of flow through tube bundles with user subroutines

The last hand-on session will offer the opportunity to the attendees to perform an overnight simulation on Marenostrum IV.

The second part of the tutorial will deal with:

  • Hands-on Session: Use of subroutines for advanced post-processing
  • Hands-on Session: Effect of the partitioning on the time to solution
  • Hands-on Session: Code-Code coupling (flow in a pump)
  • Hands-on Session: Turbulent flow in a pump using Code_Saturne's turbomachinary module

The 2 last hands-on sessions will offer the opportunity for the attendees to perform an overnight simulation on Marenostrum IV.
