Lattice group models (LGpM) are kinetic models on integer lattices derived from the automorphism group of the lattice. In the last decades it was too expensive to simulate large systems (100 – 1000 velocities in a 2D or 3D model), with complex physical two or three dimensional domains, on normal computers or clusters within an acceptable amount of time. That changed due to the fast growth of the computing power of modern processing units. We briefly introduce lattice group models and then describe the main parallelization and optimization strategies for an efficient implementation on NVIDIA graphics cards and INTEL processors. Afterwards we present the achieved speedups and discuss some results from numerical simulations of physical phenomena (shock waves, Knudsen pump, Karman vortex street) in two and three dimensions at high, transitional and low Knudsen numbers.

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.
