MS4F – Cross-Cutting Aspects of Exploiting Exascale Platforms for High-Fidelity CFD in Turbulence Research

June 27 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm

With the arrival of exascale computing, the theoretical computational performance has increased, opening up for unprecedented simulation capabilities for Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) applications. While offering high theoretical peak performance and high memory bandwidth, to efficiently exploit these systems, complex programming models and significant programming investments are necessary. Furthermore, most known pre and exascale systems currently planned or installed, e.g. Frontier, Leonardo and LUMI, contain a large fraction of accelerators. Thus, the challenge of porting and tuning scientific codes for these new platforms can no longer be ignored. However, established CFD codes build on years of verification and validation of their underlying numerical methods, potentially preventing a complete rewrite and rendering disruptive code changes a delicate task. Therefore, porting established codes to accelerators poses several interdisciplinary challenges, from formulating suitable numerical methods to applying sound software engineering practices to cope with disruptive code changes. The wide range of topics makes the exascale CFD transition relevant to a broader audience, extending outside the traditional fluid dynamics community. This minisymposium aims at bringing together the CFD community as a whole, from domain scientists to HPC experts, to discuss current and future challenges towards enabling exascale fluid dynamics simulations on anticipated accelerated systems.
