Sustainable and Reliable Computing with Tools: Analyzing Precision Appetites of CFD Applications with VerifiCarlo

Energy consumption constraints for large-scale computing encourage scientists to revise the architecture design of hardware but also applications, algorithms, as well as the underlying working/ storage precision. I will introduce an approach to address the issue of sustainable, but still reliable, computations from the perspective of computer arithmetic tools. We employ VerifiCarlo and its variable precision backend to identify the parts of the code that benefit from smaller floating-point formats. Finally, we show preliminary results on proxies of CFD applications.

VPREC to analyze the precision appetites and numerical abnormalities of several proxy applications

The third in a series of presentations from Roman Iakymchuk on work using tools to investigate mixed precision possibilities. He and his co-author Pablo de Oliveira Castro introduce an approach to address the issue of sustainable computations with computer arithmetic tools. They use the variable precision backend (VPREC) to identify parts of code that can benefit from smaller floating-point formats and show preliminary results on several proxy applications.

Neko: A modern, Portable, and Scalable Framework for High-Fidelity Computational Fluid Dynamics

Lisbon Congress Centre Praça das Indústrias 1, Lisboa, Portugal

If you'll be at ECCOMAS 2024, check out 'Neko: A modern, Portable, and Scalable Framework for High-Fidelity Computational Fluid Dynamics' presented by Niclas Jansson on the terrace.CEEC will have a robust presence at ECCOMAS24 this summer in Lisbon, Portugal! Over the course of the conference, we will be represented in three mini-simposium talks ranging from progress with our wind turbine lighthouse case to our latest work on improving FLEXI.

ECCOMAS MS088 – State-of-the-art Machine Learning Techniques For Computational Fluid Dynamics

Lisbon Congress Centre Praça das Indústrias 1, Lisboa, Portugal

Machine learning (ML) in scientific applications including computational fluid dynamics (CFD) is a growing field of research. However, ML can be less stable and more prone to errors in CFD because of its complexity relative to e.g. game theory. Thus, recent research has concentrated on reinforcement learning (RL) or physics-informed methods applied to CFD. Another continuously growing field of research which alleviates the common problems of ML in CFD is physics-informed neural networks (PINNs). Recently, modified versions of classical PINNs have been proposed to push their limitations and make them more tailored to CFD. With these considerations in mind, this minisymposium will discuss the applicability, predictive performance and limitations of state-of-the-art ML methods in CFD.
