COMPLEXITY 2017 - First Spring School on Lattice Boltzmann Methods with OpenLB Software Lab

Date2017-03-06 - 2017-03-10


VenueHammamet, Tunisia Tunisia



Topics/Call fo Papers

In recent years, Lattice Boltzmann Methods (LBM) turned into an established numerical tool for computational fluid dynamic (CFD) problems and beyond. The simulation of complex multi-physical problems benefits strongly from the comprehensive mesoscopic modelling underlying LBM and establishes LBM besides traditional numerical methods.
Target audience
The expected attendees are Master and PhD students as well as researchers and developers from academia and industry, who seek to learn both, theoretical and practical aspects of LBM. As simulation is an interdisciplinary discipline, the spring school addresses to engineers, computer scientists, mathematicians, physicians and others. Based on their interest in CFD, this course provides a collaborative platform for LBM for developers and researchers.
Objective of the spring school
The spring school introduces scientists and applicants from industry to the theory of LBM and trains them on practical problems. The first three days are dedicated to the theoretical fundamentals of LBM up to ongoing research on selected topics. Followed by two days of mentored training on case studies using OpenLB, the participants gain deep inside into LBM and its applications.
This educational concept is probably unique in the LBM community and offers a comprehensive and personal guided approach to LBM. Participants also benefit from the knowledge exchange during poster session, coffee breaks and the excursion at the Mediterranean sea.
Lab room and requirements
In the computing lab sessions on Thursday and Friday, the participants are trained on practical applications, deploying the open source software OpenLB. Particular focus is placed on case studies, which are important to understand and verify the theory presented in the lectures, earlier in the spring school. By the help of experienced tutors, the computing lab sessions also enable to set up OpenLB simulations for relevant problems. To guaranty personal tutoring and intensive exchange between experienced mentors and novices, the lab is limited to 30 participants.
The attendees are responsible to bring their own laptop equipped with the software
GNU c++ compiler 4.8 and higher
OpenMPI 1.6 and higher
