  • Diurnal cycle RANS simulations applied to wind resource assessment 

    Barcons, Jordi; Avila, Matias; Folch, Arnau (Wiley, 2019-02)
    Article
    Open Access
    Microscale computational fluid dynamics (CFD) models can be used for wind resource assessment on complex terrains. These models generally assume neutral atmospheric stratification, an assumption that can lead to inaccurate ...
  • Parallel 3-D marine controlled-source electromagnetic modelling using high-order tetrahedral Nédélec elements

    Article
    Open Access
    This paper reports on impurity behavior in a set of hybrid discharges with Ne seeding—one of the techniques considered to reduce the power load on reactor walls. A series of experiments carried out with light gas injection ...
  • Extension of the parallel Sparse Matrix Vector Product (SpMV) for the implicit coupling of PDEs on non-matching meshes 

    Houzeaux, Guillaume; Borrell, Ricard; Cajas García, Juan Carlos; Vázquez, Mariano (Elsevier, 2018-09-15)
    Article
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    The Sparse Matrix Vector Product (SpMV) is one of the main operations of iterative solvers, and, in a parallel context, it is also the siege of point-to-point communications between the neighboring MPI processes. The ...
  • A stochastic rupture earthquake code based on the fiber bundle model (TREMOL v0.1): application to Mexican subduction earthquakes 

    Monterrubio-Velasco, Marisol; Rodríguez-Pérez, Quetzalcóatl; Zúñiga, Ramón; Scholz, Doreen; Aguilar-Méléndez, Armando; de la Puente, Josep (European Geosciences Union (EGU), 2019-05-08)
    Article
    Open Access
    In general terms, earthquakes are the result of brittle failure within the heterogeneous crust of the Earth. However, the rupture process of a heterogeneous material is a complex physical problem that is difficult to model ...
  • High-Integrity GPU Designs for Critical Real-Time Automotive Systems 

    Alcaide, Sergi; Kosmidis, Leonidas; Hernandez, Carles; Abella, Jaume (IEEE, 2019-04-16)
    Conference lecture
    Open Access
    Autonomous Driving (AD) imposes the use of highperformance hardware, such as GPUs, to perform object recognition and tracking in real-time. However, differently to the consumer electronics market, critical real-time AD ...
  • Parallel mesh partitioning based on space filling curves 

    Borrell, Ricard; Cajas García, Juan Carlos; Mira, Daniel; Taha, A.; Koric, S.; Vázquez, Mariano; Houzeaux, Guillaume (Elsevier, 2018-09)
    Article
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    Larger supercomputers allow the simulation of more complex phenomena with increased accuracy. Eventually this requires finer and thus also larger geometric discretizations. In this context, and extrapolating to the Exascale ...
  • Evaluating the roles of detailed endocardial structures on right ventricular haemodynamics by means of CFD simulations 

    Sacco, Federica; Paun, Bruno; Lehmkuhl, Oriol; Iles, Tinen L.; Iaizzo, Paul A.; Houzeaux, Guillaume; Vázquez, Mariano; Butakoff, Constantine; Aguado-Sierra, Jazmin (Wiley, 2018-09)
    Open Access
    Computational modelling plays an important role in right ventricular (RV) haemodynamic analysis. However, current approaches use smoothed ventricular anatomies. The aim of this study is to characterise RV haemodynamics ...
