Two Mechanical Engineering Faculty members receive computing support from the LLNL Institutional Computing Grand Challenge program to study Large-Scale Wind Farms

A Mechanical Engineering faculty proposal for high performance computing (HPC) allocation at the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL) was selected for support during the 8th Institutional Unclassified Computing Grand Challenge.  Dr. Jay Sitaraman and Dr. Dimitri Mavriplis will use the “Vulcan” supercomputer to study Large Scale Simulations of Wind Farm Aerodynamics in Turbulent Atmospheric InflowConditions.
LLNL’s Vulcan supercomputer has 393,000 processors and is the 6th fastest HPC facility in the world.  The goal of the UW project is to simulate and analyze flow fields in large wind farms. Both faculty members have worked extensively in developing Helios, which is one of the only computational tools capable of performing simulations at such large scales.  Helios was co-developed by the U.S. Army and the University of Wyoming for performing rotorcraft simulations.  It is expected that results from the large-scale computational flow simulation will become a benchmark and provide guidance for optimizing turbine placement in future wind farms.
