Multiphase flows are widely used in many practical applications in industry, such as oil industry, chemical and thermal engineering, bioengineering and medicine. Especially flows in tubes with granular layer. Multiphase flows in inclined tubes are poorly studied. Numerical study of multiphase flows in inclined tubes was performed. Cases of clear tube and tube with granular layer were examined. Simulation model was based on lattice Boltzmann method. Parallel algorithm was programmed in CUDA C. For numerical simulations graphical processor nVidia Tesla C2075 was used. Bubble flow in inclined tubes with different inclination angles and diameters of beads were studied. Simulation results are in agreement with the experimental studies. Flow pattern of air bubble was examined.

Free GPU computing nodes at hgpu.org

Registered users can now run their OpenCL application at hgpu.org. We provide 1 minute of computer time per each run on two nodes with two AMD and one nVidia graphics processing units, correspondingly. There are no restrictions on the number of starts.

The platforms are

Node 1
  • GPU device 0: nVidia GeForce GTX 560 Ti 2GB, 822MHz
  • GPU device 1: AMD/ATI Radeon HD 6970 2GB, 880MHz
  • CPU: AMD Phenom II X6 @ 2.8GHz 1055T
  • RAM: 12GB
  • OS: OpenSUSE 13.1
  • SDK: nVidia CUDA Toolkit 6.5.14, AMD APP SDK 3.0
Node 2
  • GPU device 0: AMD/ATI Radeon HD 7970 3GB, 1000MHz
  • GPU device 1: AMD/ATI Radeon HD 5870 2GB, 850MHz
  • CPU: Intel Core i7-2600 @ 3.4GHz
  • RAM: 16GB
  • OS: OpenSUSE 12.3
  • SDK: AMD APP SDK 3.0

Completed OpenCL project should be uploaded via User dashboard (see instructions and example there), compilation and execution terminal output logs will be provided to the user.
