Simulation Techniques and Scientific Computing
Prof. Dr.-Ing. Sabine Roller
Welcome to the chair of Simulation Techniques and Scientific Computing of University of Siegen!
The chairs scientific interest is to develop algorithms and methods for simulations to use parallel systems for simulations. For mesh based applications, the APES program suite is developed with the aim to cover a broad variety of simulation scenarios and their use on massively parallel systems.
The APES software suite is developed for performing simulations on highly parallel systems. It contains tools to perform all necessary steps necessary for a mesh based simulation, starting with a mesh generator, several specialised solvers, up to post processing and visualisation. APES follows a modulare approach with dedicated tools for different purposes. The foundation is the central TreElM library, which implements data types and methods of the mesh. Meshes are represented using octrees, which give great flexibility in the representation of complex geometries, and at the same time are suitable for highly scalable parallel applications.
Our simulations are mainly done at the three national supercomputing centers in
With our tools, we can make use of hundreds of thousands of processing units for a particular simulation.
As an example, this is the development of a Rayleigh-Taylor Instability, as it is simulation with APES. The initial condition also shows the mesh. The result was calculated using a DG method with an order of 32.
