Massively parallel computation provides enormous capacity to perform simulations on a time scale that can change the paradigm of how simulations are used by scientists, engineers and other practitioners to address discovery and design. We consider in this work an active flow control application on a realistic wing design that could be leveraged only by a scalable fully implicit unstructured finite element flow solver and the access to high performance computing resources. After a brief…

Scalability study of an implicit solver for coupled fluid-structure interaction problems on unstructured meshes in 3D
TLDR
This paper introduces a multilevel unstructured mesh Schwarz preconditioned Newton–Krylov method for the implicitly discretized, fully coupled system of partial differential equations consisting of incompressible Navier–Stokes equations for the fluid flows and the linear elasticity equation for the structure.
High-Order Stabilized Finite Elements on Dynamic Meshes
TLDR
The development of dynamic mesh capability for turbulent flow simulations using the Streamlined Upwind Petrov-Galerkin (SUPG) discretization and the ability of these schemes to satisfy the discrete geometric conservation law (GCL) on curved elements is assessed.
PUMI: Parallel Unstructured Mesh Infrastructure
TLDR
The overall design, software structures, example programs, and performance results are presented, and the effectiveness of PUMI is demonstrated by its applications to massively parallel adaptive simulation workflows.
Component-based workflows for parallel thermomechanical analysis of arrayed geometries
TLDR
This work automate the simulation process from problem specification to the solution of the underlying PDEs, including problem setup, domain definition, and mesh generation, and establishes the utility of the proposed approach by demonstrating that qualitatively different stress concentrations are seen in solder joints near the center of such an array and a solder joint seen at the edge of the same array.
Performance Analysis, Design Considerations, and Applications of Extreme-Scale In Situ Infrastructures
TLDR
This paper examines several key design and performance issues related to the idea of in situ processing at extreme scale on modern platforms: scalability, overhead, performance measurement and analysis, comparison and contrast with a traditional post hoc approach, and interfacing with simulation codes.
TYPE One machine , one minute , three billion tetrahedra
TLDR
A new scalable parallelization scheme to generate the 3D Delaunay triangulation of a given set of points is presented and it is finally shown how this very efficient parallel Delauny triangulated can be integrated in a Delaunays refinement mesh generator taking as input the boundary of the domain to mesh.
One machine, one minute, three billion tetrahedra
TLDR
A new scalable parallelization scheme to generate the 3D Delaunay triangulation of a given set of points using a multithreaded version of the Delaunays kernel that is able to concurrently insert vertices.

Scalable implicit finite element solver for massively parallel processing with demonstration to 160K cores
TLDR
This work presents a parallelization paradigm and associated procedures that enable the implicit, unstructured flow-solver to achieve strong scalability on various systems and considers fluid-flow examples in two application areas to show the effectiveness of the procedures.
Unstructured mesh partition improvement for implicit finite element at extreme scale
TLDR
This work applies a combination of global and local partitioning and an iterative improvement algorithm, LIIPBMod, developed in the previous study to the simulations at extreme scale with up to O(1010) elements and up toO(300K) cores.

Controlling Unstructured Mesh Partitions for Massively Parallel Simulations
TLDR
Two methods are developed that work in conjunction with graph/hypergraph-based procedures to provide improved partitions, particularly for time-critical calculations where individual cores may be lightly loaded in terms of the number of mesh entities per core.
