SC8 - Synchronizing cores rapidly: a matter of efficiency

High-Performance Computing (HPC) is a scientific field involving both mathematics applied and computer science, with applications in numerous fields, including climate, energy, sustainable mobility, etc. In all of these fields, we often need to simulate large-scale physical phenomena with mathematical models that require a lot of computing time and storage space...

Modeling wind turbine wake: a question of atmosphere!

In the wake zone located behind each wind turbine, wind velocity is reduced and turbulence increased. This results in a reduction in the lifespan of machines located downstream as well as a decrease in a windfarm’s overall electricity production. To limit these effects and help optimize the siting of turbines on windfarms, analytical wake models exist in the literature but they incorporate numerous simplifying hypotheses concerning wind turbines and their environment...

SC8 - “Massively” accelerated windfarm simulation

In the field of wind energy, Large Eddy Simulations (LES) are widely used to gain a better understanding of wind flow within wind farms. On a wind farm scale, they are also used to establish analytical wake models, and are useful for studying the interactions between individual wind turbines as well as with the atmospheric boundary layer (ABL)...

Faster and just as good: the motto of adaptive methods

In the field of numerical simulation , a sufficiently accurate representation of the data associated with physical models requires, in general, a very large numerical grid that, despite existing
