libParanumal: Galerkin-Boltzmann 3D flow simulation
libParanumal simulation for 3D flow over a finite fence modeled with the Galerkin-Boltzmann flow equations of gas dynamics (Toelke et al 00). The simulation uses a mix of discretization techniques:
Physical space: a 4th order polynomial discontinuous Galerkin spatial discretization with 2M tetrahedral elements.
Velocity space discretization: second order Hermite expansion modulating a Maxwellian distribution.
Temporal discretization: semi-analytical Runge-Kutta time integrator with adaptive time-step selection.
Far field closure: the outer domain non-wall boundaries are wrapped with a multiaxial MPML absorbing layer to absorb outgoing waves.
Simulation performed by Ali Karakus using 12 NVIDIA GTX 1080TI GPUs on the Virginia Tech Costain Chair cluster, pascal.
