Three-dimensional flow simulations of the flying snake using Microsoft Azure


Talk presented at the 30th International Conference on Parallel Computational Fluid Dynamics, 17 May 2018.

We ran simulations of the three-dimensional flow around an anatomically correct body section of a flying snake, using our PETSc-based immersed-boundary method code PetIBM on the public cloud platform Microsoft Azure. The simulations ran on NC24r instances using Azure Batch service and Batch Shipyard, solving the Poisson system on multiple GPU devices with NVIDIA AmgX library.
