Introduction

Among other objectives, we assess the behaviour of real exascale-class scientific and engineering applications on the different generations of platforms made available by the project. These real applications, used by academia and industry, running daily in production in existing European (PRACE Tier-0 systems) or national HPC facilities, have been selected by the different partners in order to cover a wide range of scientific and engineering domains (geophysics, fusion, materials, particle physics, life sciences, combustion, aerodynamics, weather forecast…), as well as a wide range of hardware and software requirements. Some of these applications are also part of the PRACE Benchmark.

AVL EXCITE™

AVL EXCITE™ is a software for the simulation of rigid and flexible multi-body dynamics of powertrains. It is a specialized tool that calculates the dynamics, strength, vibration and acoustics of combustion engines, transmissions and conventional or electrified powertrains.

AVL FIRE™

AVL FIRE™ is the leading CFD simulation tool in the field of combustion analysis. It specializes in the accurate prediction of all IC Engine relevant processes including injection nozzle flow, fuel injection, combustion, emission and exhaust gas aftertreatment. The software also supports the development of electrified powertrains and drivelines.

AVL FAME™

Within its flexible automated meshing environment (FAME™) AVL FIRE™ offers multiple options for automated grid generation enabling fast, reliable and accurate discretization of complex three-dimensional domains with or without moving system boundaries. All grids feature grid boundary layers. Grid refinement is performed either automatically depending on model curvature or on user request. Solution dependent adaptive grid refinement is available too.
