Rapid-response Urban CFD Simulations using a GPU Computing Paradigm on Desktop Supercomputers

Publication Year: 


We envision that a high-fidelity CFD simulation capability with a rapid computational turn-around time on small-footprint computing systems can transform emergency response and hazard zone prediction for contaminant dispersion in urban environments. In the following, we present the computational performance analysis of a Navier-Stokes solver code that we develop specifically for small-footprint desktop platforms equipped with multiple GPUs.
