In this research, a numerical algorithm was developed to solve the incompressible Navier-Stokes equations using explicit time stepping. The goal of this research was to develop an unsteady SIMPLER based algorithm with lower computational overhead. The new explicit algorithm uses a four stage Runge-Kutta scheme to update the velocities and eliminates the need for the pressure correction equation and sub-iterations. This algorithm was derived for use on unstructured tetrahedral grids and was validated with the lid-driven cavity and unsteady rotor flows. This algorithm proved to be easily parallelized and was implemented in CUDA. As a result, accelerations of over 80x are observed compared to a CPU based implicit SIMPLER algorithm using a standard workstation.

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.
