Efficient LBM on GPUs for dense moving objects using immersed boundary condition

  title={Efficient LBM on GPUs for dense moving objects using immersed boundary condition},
  author={Jo{\"e}l B{\'e}ny and Jonas Latt},
There exists an increasing interest for using immersed boundary methods (IBMs) (Peskin 2000) to model moving objects in computational fluid dynamics. Indeed, this approach is particularly efficient, because the fluid mesh does not require to be body-fitted or to adjust dynamically to the motion of the body. Frequently, IBMs are implemented in combination with the lattice Boltzmann methods (LBM) (Kruger 2016). They fit elegantly into the framework of this method, and yield impressive parallel…

Cross-platform programming model for many-core lattice Boltzmann simulations
It is shown that a single code can compile and reach state-of-the-art performance on both many-core CPU and GPU environments for the solution of a given non trivial fluid dynamics problem, and that it is less than ever necessary to draw a distinction between research and production software.
Revisiting the Homogenized Lattice Boltzmann Method with Applications on Particulate Flows
The homogenized lattice Boltzmann method as one approach for direct numerical simulations is revisited and validated for different scenarios, including a 3D case of a settling sphere for various Reynolds numbers and an updated version of the method, which is in good agreement with the benchmark values.
On the accuracy and performance of the lattice Boltzmann method with 64-bit, 32-bit and novel 16-bit number formats
It is shown that the difference in accuracy between FP64 and FP32 is negligible in almost all cases, and that for a large number of cases even 16-bit is sufficient.

The Immersed Boundary-Lattice Boltzmann Method Parallel Model for Fluid-Structure Interaction on Heterogeneous Platforms
A parallel algorithm for IB-LBM on a CPU-GPU heterogeneous platform, in which the CPU not only controls the launch of the kernel function but also performs calculations, is proposed.


Lift generation by a two-dimensional symmetric flapping wing: immersed boundary-lattice Boltzmann simulations
Two-dimensional (2D) symmetric flapping flight is investigated by an immersed boundary-lattice Boltzmann method (IB-LBM). In this method, we can treat the moving boundary problem efficiently on the
