Adaptierung und Erweiterung von Casulli-Algorithmen für Parallelrechner mit Hardware-Beschleunigung und zur Anwendung von konservativen Advektionsverfahren

Jacek A. Jankowski

BAW internal R&D-project report, 2010-2012.

Abstract: The aim of the R&D-project is development and application of new programming paradigms in high performance computing through the adaptation of Casulli algorithms for arriving parallel computer architectures with hardware acceleration. Additionally, the existing advection schemes should be adapted for all flow regimes. Continue reading

Assessment of a parallel implementation of a two-dimensional scheme for free surface flows using a GPU

J.A. Jankowski

Abstract: The rapid changes in the present computer architectures throw questions concerning the future of the hardware-oriented programming based on the usage of heterogeneous parallel computing resources, consisting of nodes of interconnected, but separate CPUs and GPUs. However, it is believed that the sustainability of the programming efforts nowadays is to be searched in the fact that the principle source of the performance of the present GPUs as well as the emerging APUs is the hardware acceleration of vector operations. Therefore, this contribution delivers an assessment of a hardware-accelerated parallel implementation of a principal algorithm for a vertically integrated finite difference scheme for free surface flows including non-linear treatment of wetting and drying.

Very high resolution numerical modelling for inland waterway design

R. Patzwahl, J.A. Jankowski, T. Lege

Abstract. The paper discusses the advantages and disadvantages of numerical modelling of rivers with a grid of very high resolution using the new MPI version of UnTRIM as the computational engine. The main aim of the investigation is to assess the economy of this approach taking especially into account the effort required for the mesh generation and its modification, which is usually laborious in the case of coarser meshes requiring exact reproduction of structure lines defining the flow.
