"Simulation Science: The Modeling of RealWorld Problems"
September 17
3:05pm in LCB 225
The solution of realworld computational science and engineering
problems requires a knowledge of the application domain, sufficient
mathematical sophistication to numerically model the problem through
simulation, a breadth of knowledge in highperformance computing
techniques to solve the simulation on available hardware, and a
familiarity with postprocessing and visualization techniques for
making sense of the torrent of data produced by your
simulation. Simulation science is precisely this endeavor  the
synergy of many different areas so as to solve large realworld
problems through computational simulation. In this talk, I will
discuss my efforts at accomplishing simulation science. Specifically,
I will discuss my work on the use of highorder numerical methods
combined with highperformance computing for solving problems in
computational fluid dynamics, computation mechanics and in
fluidstructure interaction.
