Experience Real-World Scalability: Witness the Power of Good Scaling in Action!

Testing was performed at Karolina cluster with  NVIDIA A100-SXM4-40GB cards

When simulating a challenging real-world task such as pumping station's discharge object the simulation speed is a key issue. In the case water flows from a pipe, meeting the overflow wall. It is multiphase scenario but can be captured by Moving Particle Simulation (MPS) method. To ensure accurate benchmarking, all calculations are performer within a strict 24-hour timeframe on a powerful cluster. For this demanding simulation, the GPU card memory is never a concern, thanks to our efficient solver (presented single precision, but can run in double precision as well). Starting with an empty piping, we specified the inflow using volumetric flow rate, and over time, the water represented by MPS particles steadily increase, capturing the fluid behavior.

The data presented here show the results from the last few time steps when the simulation reached its highest number of particles in the domain. See how Particleworks' exceptional scaling capabilities easily handle even the most complex scenarios, making it a prime candidate for deployment in supercomputing facilities.

When interpreting the results, keep in mind that for your specific simulation needs, you may also prefer the implicit pressure method integrated in Particleworks, which allows for higher time steps and significantly shorter overall physical simulation time.
