  2. 2. Efficient Partitioning of Dynamic Structured Grid Hierarchies

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Johan Steensland; Uppsala universitet.; Uppsala universitet.; [2002]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; scientific computing; partitioning; structured grids; adaptive mesh refinement; dynamic load balancing; Scientific Computing; Beräkningsvetenskap;

    Abstract : This thesis aims at decreasing execution time for large-scale structured adaptive mesh refinement (SAMR) applications executing on general parallel computers. The key contributions are (1) A conceptual dynamically adaptive meta-partitioner able to select and configure an appropriate partitioning technique, based on application and computer state, and (2) A characterization of new and existing domain-based partitioners, enabling a mapping from application and computer state onto appropriate partitioners, and (3) Sketched scalable solutions, expressed in terms of natural regions and expert algorithms, for the problem to efficiently partition large-scale SAMR applications with deep grid hierarchies executing on general parallel computers, and (4) A software partitioning tool Nature+Fable, implementing the greater parts of these sketched scalable solutions and engineered as part of the meta-partitioner.

  3. 3. The Full Multigrid Method Applied to Turbulent Flow in Ventilated Enclosures Using Structured and Unstructured Grids

    University dissertation from Chalmers University of Technology

    Author : Peter Emvin; Chalmers tekniska högskola.; Chalmers University of Technology.; [1997]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Fysik; Physics; Teknisk mekanik; Engineering mechanics; multigrid; finite volume; finite element; k-epsilon; k-omega large Eddy simulation; ventilated enclosure; local mesh refinement; adaptivity;

    Abstract : Computational fluid dynamics require large computer resources and it is thus of paramount interest to have as efficient an algorithm as possible. This means that both an accurate discretization and a fast solver are required. In this work, we have used the full multigrid concept, which is a general and optimal solver. READ MORE

  4. 4. Metadata Management in Multi-Grids and Multi-Clouds

    University dissertation from Umeå : Umeå University, Department of Computing Science

    Author : Daniel Espling; Umeå universitet.; [2011]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; grid computing; cloud computing; accounting; billing; metadata; monitoring; structure; fairshare; scheduling; federated; datalogi; Computer Science;

    Abstract : Grid computing and cloud computing are two related paradigms used to access and use vast amounts of computational resources. The resources are often owned and managed by a third party, relieving the users from the costs and burdens of acquiring and managing a considerably large infrastructure themselves. READ MORE

  5. 5. Structured Model Reduction and its Application to Power Systems

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Christopher Sturk; KTH.; [2012]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY;

    Abstract : Many of today’s engineering systems have a network structure. Consider for instance power systems, where multiple grids of different geographical coverage are interconnected to form larger grids, a set of vehicles moving in formation or distributed control systems, where several controllers act locally with limited information.
