an overview of Solfec, with the stress on parallelization and its application to graphite cores

English

Séminaire Modèles et Algorithmes Déterministes: CASYS

30/06/2011 - 09:45 Tomasz Koziara Salle 1 - Tour IRMA

the author will give an overview of Solfec: a distributed memory parallel Contact Dynamics code. He will talk about the design aspects of  the overall implementation: from time integration and kinematic models, through contact detection and implicit contact solvers and also about parallelism, dynamic load balancing as well as about the current application to nuclear graphite cores. Finally, he will talk about the bottlenecks and limitations and hope for some discussion about how things can still be improved.
