Team 180 Experiment – CFD SpeedIT Solver on GPUs in the Cloud
This case study from Team 180 is about benchmarking SpeedIT Flow™, one of the fastest Computational Fluid Dynamics implicit single-phase flow solvers currently available. In contrary to other solutions a Semi-Implicit Method for Pressure Linked Equations (SIMPLE) and the Pressure Implicit with Operator Splitting (PISO) algorithms have been implemented on graphics processing unit (GPU). The software is particularly useful in acceleration of time-consuming external and internal flow simulations, such as aerodynamics studies in car and aviation industries. SpeedIT has been benchmarked in the cloud, on Ohio Supercomputer Center resources, and performance compared for CPUs versus GPUs, for applications AeroCar, SolarCar, Motorbike, and DrivAer.
