In this paper, the performance and scalability of different multi-core systems is experimentally evaluated for the Tsunami simulation EasyWave. The target platforms include a standard Ivy Bridge Xeon processor, an Intel Xeon Phi accelerator card, and also a GPU. OpenMP, MPI and CUDA were used to parallelize the program to these platforms. The absolute performance […]

Having learned a great deal about the problem and also the solutions over the course of this project, it is the opinion of the author that the method undertaken within this report is unsatisfactory for delivering performance enhancement over alternative approaches. Firstly the domain transfers result in reduced performance. For larger simulations these prove to […]

In this report we present a novel approach to model coupling for shared-memory multicore systems hosting OpenCL-compliant accelerators, which we call The Glasgow Model Coupling Framework (GMCF). We discuss the implementation of a prototype of GMCF and its application to coupling the Weather Research and Forecasting Model and an OpenCL-accelerated version of the Large Eddy […]

In this Master Thesis an analysis of illumination conditions at the lunar south pole using parallel computing techniques is presented. Due to the small inclination (1.54o) of the lunar rotational axis with respect to the ecliptic plane and the topography of the lunar south pole, which allows long illumination periods, the study of illumination conditions […]

FLEXPART is a popular simulator that models the transport and diffusion of air pollutants, based on the Lagrangian approach. It is capable of regional and global simulation and supports both forward and backward runs. A complex model like this contains many calculations suitable for parallelisation. Recently, a GPU-accelerated version of the simulator (FLEXCPP) has been […]

Urban form modifies the microclimate and may trap in heat and pollutants. This causes a rise of energy demands to heat and cool building interiors. Mitigating these effects is a growing concern due to the increasing urbanization of major cities. Researchers, urban planners, and city architects rely on sophisticated simulations to investigate how to reduce […]

Effective utilization of GPU processing capacity for scientific workloads is often limited by memory throughput and PCIe communication transfer times. This is particularly true for semi-analytic Fourier-domain computations in earthquake modeling (Relax) where operations on large-scale 3D data structures can require moving large volumes of data from storage to the compute in predictable but orthogonal […]

Radiative transfer (RT) calculations are among the most computationally expensive components of global and regional weather and climate models, and radiation codes are therefore ideal candidates for applying techniques to improve the overall efficiency of such models. In many general circulation models (GCMs), a physically based radiation calculation can require as much as 30-50 percent […]

In terminal airspace, integrating arrivals and departures with shared waypoints provides the potential of improving operational efficiency by allowing direct routes when possible. Incorporating stochastic evaluation as a post-analysis process of deterministic optimization, and imposing a safety buffer in deterministic optimization, are two ways to learn and alleviate the impact of uncertainty and to avoid […]

In this paper, we propose new methods for building geological illustrations and animations. We focus on allowing geologists to create their subsurface models by means of sketches, to quickly communicate concepts and ideas rather than detailed information. The result of our sketch-based modelling approach is a layer-cake volume representing geological phenomena, where each layer is […]

Geostatistical methods provide a powerful tool to understand the complexity of data arising from Earth sciences. Since the mid 70’s, this numerical approach is widely used to understand the spatial variation of natural phenomena in various domains like Oil and Gas, Mining or Environmental Industries. Considering the huge amount of data available, standard implementations of […]

Environmental problems and issues are not limited by artificial boundaries created by man. Usually there are different teams or individuals working on the catchments, estuaries, rivers and coastal basins in different countries using different parameters and formulations for various processes. However, the system is a natural one and as such no boundaries exist. When a […]

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.
