Particle Simulations on GPUs

In this mini-symposium we will explore the impact of the GPU in engineering simulations and glimpse into the future of simulations and computational engineering. Industrial-scale simulations using particle-based methods, such as the discrete element method, remain a big challenge, but the GPU architecture is changing that perception fast, as demonstrated by the recent advancement of the open-source framework Blaze-DEM. However, engineering simulation is still characterized by either the analyze-wait-modify-analyze cycle or more recently the batch analyze-wait-modify-batch analyze cycle. The GPU is enabling a new paradigm denoted to interactive simulation and design (ISD), allowing engineers to simulate process changes before being actually implemented.
While this mini-symposium is primarily focused on the algorithms and computational implementation of particle based methods using DEM, SPH, LBM on the GPU, applications of these methods in science and engineering will also be explored.
