Computational Mechanics and Multi-Disciplinary Applications to High Performance Supercomputing Environments

<h3 class="red">Computational Mechanics and Multi-Disciplinary Applications to High Performance Supercomputing Environments</h3><p>This project is concerned with the development of unified computational methodologies, solution algorithms, and finite element modeling/analysis strategies for rigid-flexible multi-body dynamics, contact-impact-penetration, electromagnetics, multi-disciplinary flow-thermal-structural problems, and micro/nano-scale effects in heat conduction. The philosophy and rationale of this work is based on employing a common numerical methodology for each of the individual disciplines in conjunction with common computational algorithms for applicability to supercomputing systems in solving large-scale engineering problems. Various research activities include development of new time integration computational algorithms for transient/dynamic/contact/ impact/damage/penetration problems; development of effective finite element based methodologies, which can be used in multi-disciplinary problems; new physically correct contact models for penetration and impact problems; application of finite element methods in the manufacturing simulations to provide a paradigm for Virtual Manufacturing and the simulation of Virtual Experiment and Virtual Testing. The application areas include a wide range of engineering problems involving multi-physics and space/time domain decomposition with interface to graph partitioning techniques. The overall efforts focus attention on providing new and effective approaches for not only improving the existing capabilities for applicability to supercomputing environments, but also towards providing an accurate understanding of the physics and mechanics relevant to multi-disciplinary engineering problems.</p><p>Return to this PI&#39;s <a href="">main page</a>.</p>

High Resolution Numerical Simulations of Environmental, Renewable Energy, and Biological Flows

<h3 class="red">High-Resolution Numerical Simulations of Environmental, Renewable Energy, and Biological Flows</h3><p>The <a href="">Computational Hydrodynamics and Biofluids Group</a> at the <a href="">St. Anthony Falls Laboratory</a> is developing high resolution, fluid-structure interaction computational fluid dynamics models for simulating: physiologic blood flow in mechanical heart valves implanted in patient-specific anatomies; flow past wind and hydrokinetic turbines; and turbulent flow and sediment transport in natural rivers with nature and man-made structures. The numerical algorithms employ a sharp-interface immersed boundary method for handling arbitrarily complex geometries with multiple moving immersed bodies enhanced with local grid refinement approach. Both loose and strongly coupled fluid structure interaction algorithms have been developed and validated. The computer code has been parallelized with MPI.</p><p>Return to this PI&#39;s <a href="">main page</a>.</p>
