Parallelization in OpenFOAM for HPC Deployment

Date: April 03 + April 05, 01.00 pm, 2024; Format: online

Short abstract: OpenFOAM is an open-source, mature, and established C++ library for computational continuum mechanics (CCM) including Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD). To leverage its full potential, it is crucial to efficiently use high-performance computing (HPC) resources on modern distributed-memory parallel computer architectures. This must be based on a sound understanding of parallelization in OpenFOAM and HPC techniques available.

The training will be concerned with introducing the participants to the different concepts of parallelization, along with code examples for illustration. Moreover, we will provide hands-on exercises to further deepen and solidify the transferred knowledge. The participants will further gain an overview of the distinct techniques and dedicated tools involved in running a massively parallel computation using OpenFOAM, as well as over ongoing HPC-related activities in research and development.

Language: English

Capacity: 100

Further information: Participants need to have a standing knowledge of using Linux, GIT and have some experience in C++ programming (preferably with OpenFOAM). Also, insight into CFD theory (e.g., basic concepts of discretization) is assumed.
