CUDA Implementation of Vertex-Centered, Finite Volume CFD Methods on Unstructured Grids with Flow Control Applications

X.S. Trompoukis, V.G. Asouti, I.C. Kampolis and K.C. Giannakoglou

This chapter presents the graphical processing unit (GPU) implementation of a Navier-Stokes equations solver for steady and unsteady flows and its use for the analysis and optimization of flow control problems based on active control mechanisms. The developed software solves the flow (mean-flow and turbulence model) equations using the vertex-centered, finite volume method on unstructured grids. This is the worst case in memory handling, which is known to be the most important parameter affecting speed-up. Thanks to the use of GPUs, the analysis and, ...
