How GPU Technology Is Transforming Flow Simulation

Gamers may have been the first to enjoy the benefits of GPU technology. Today it has grown into many areas of enterprise and supercomputing where it packs an impressive punch. Now a team led by Peter Vincent, a senior lecturer in the Department of Aeronautics at Imperial College London, is giving CFD technology a 10x boost with the launch of the new GPU-accelerated PyFR v1.0.0. Computational Fluid Dynamics is the computational simulation of fluid flow. It helps engineers understand complex air and fluid flow patterns without building a wind tunnel. They're incredibly helpful when designing aircraft, wind turbines and even F1 racing cars. Comments
