Professor and Brazilian HPC4E coordinator, Alvaro Coutinho (COPPE), organised a minisymposium with two sessions, titled "Applications and Computational Strategies for Finite Element Computations using LibMesh - Part I of II" in the framework of the SIAM Conference on Computational Science and Engineering (Georgia, USA). The development of the libMesh finite element library began over a decade ago in order to support adaptive mesh refinement on unstructured grids for finite element simulations of complex applications. It has grown to support hundreds of users across the world, has been used and scaled on large parallel supercomputers, and enabled the study of a wide variety of finite element computations. This minisymposium aims to bring together users and developers of the libMesh finite element library to discuss the latest developments in the library, frameworks supported by the libMesh, and applications enabled by the libMesh infrastructure.
The programme of the minisymposium included:
- LibMesh: Past, Present, and Future
- Scalable Parallel Implementation of a Coupling Scheme Using LibMesh,
- Sedimentation and Deposition Simulation with LibMesh
- A Monolithic Approach to Numerical Simulation of Airflow in the Lungs
- An Overview of the Moose Framework and Physics Modules
- Rattlesnake: A Moose/ libmesh-Based Multiscale Neutronics Application
- An Overview of the GRINS Multiphysics Framework
- In Situ Data Steering with Provenance Data
The SIAM Activity Group on Computational Science and Engineering (CSE) fosters collaboration and interaction among applied mathematicians, computer scientists, domain scientists and engineers in those areas of research related to the theory, development, and use of computational technologies for the solution of important problems in science and engineering. The activity group promotes computational science and engineering as an academic discipline and promotes simulation as a mode of scientific discovery on the same level as theory and experiment. The activity group organizes the biennial SIAM Conference on Computational Science and Engineering.
