Tidal simulation

Lancaster University, 7-8 April 2016

The programme for the HPC-CORE (High Performance Computing-based Computational fluid dynamics for Offshore Renewable Energy) workshop has now been published. This event brings together scientific specialists from Engineering, Atmospheric and Environmental Sciences, and HPC experts to discuss the state of the art for simulation software, and the leading-edge simulations being undertaken with such software.

EPCC has a strong collaboration with one of the workshop's organisers, Dr M. Sergio Campobasso, who we have worked with for a number of years parallelising and optimising the COSA simulation code, and I will be speaking at the workshop about a current ARCHER eCSE project to improve the I/O and load balance of COSA.

EPCC has a strong presence at the event. Along with my talk, there will also be presentations from Dr Alan Gray on GPUs for scientific computing, and Dr Angus Creech from IES will talk about modelling large-scale tidal flows for tidal power generation, which is the focus of another eCSE project with Dr Creech. We are working together to optimise Fluidity for tidal simulations, improving performance to enable much larger simulations to be undertaken.

It looks like it will be a very interesting workshop and I'm looking forward to all the interesting discussions and science that come out of it.
