ORE Seminar: GPU-based mesh-less CFD modeling of free surface flows and wave

April 24, 3:30pm - 4:30pm
Mānoa Campus, Bilger Hall 150

This talk introduces emerging GPU-based, mesh-less computational fluid dynamics (CFD) models, particularly focusing on turbulent free surface flows and fluid-structure interactions. This modeling framework directly captures the complex dynamics of multi-body structures like Wave Energy Converters (WECs), along with their interactions with surrounding turbulent flows under various sea states. By adopting a mesh-less approach, we eliminate common challenges associated with mesh-based models, such as difficulties in surface tracking and mesh interpolation. Our GPU-based framework marks a significant advancement in the design process of WECs, offering substantially faster and more efficient computations than traditional CPU-based CFD models.
