The Stanford ASCI Gas Turbine Engine Simulation ProgramProfessor W. C. REYNOLDS
Center for Integrated Turbulence Simulations
Friday, July 05, 10.00 p.m., Meteo France International Conference Center
This talk will present an overview of the Stanford ASCI Gas Turbine Engine Simulation Program by its Director. Large-scale unsteady RANS turbomachinery simulations and Large Eddy Simulations of the combustor in a modern commercial aircraft engine are being run separately and in an integrated manner on the USA's most powerful supercomputers as a means to develop methods for complex multiphysics large-scale simulation. The research involves fundamental simulations for turbulence and combustion model development, new algorithms for accurate combustion LES on unstructured meshes, and research on new computer systems and architectures for Streaming Scientific Computation, an important new paradigm for scientific computing that Stanford expects to demonstrate with kernels from the engine simulation code on new hardware in 2007.
