Pawsey and CFD Community of Practice first meeting
9:30am - 11:00am
Meet Alexis and Basha, Supercomputing Specialists supporting researchers working on CFD at Pawsey, while they present about resources, tools and services available at the Centre for the community. Register for the meeting here.
The session will be followed by 45 min Q&A for the participants.
Topics presented will include:
- Introduction to Pawsey computing resources
- Present and future
- Type of parallelism supported
- Shared memory
- Distributed memory
- CFD tools
- software(open and licensed)
- Libraries, API’s
- Development tools, parallel profiler, debuggers, etc
You can register for the meeting here.
If you are an Australia CFD practitioner and have not yet joined the Community of Practices you can join here. To read more about the space read Pawsey works with AFMS to build a CFD community in Australia.
About your hosts
Alexis’s formal qualifications include a PhD in Environmental Engineering, Masters in Mechanical Engineering (Thermofluids) and Bachelor of Mechanical Engineering (Thermofluids).
He commenced with Pawsey in March 2018 and brings a wealth of knowledge in the application and development of numerical/computational tools for the development of solutions for scientific and applied engineering and fluid mechanics problems.
In his current role, he is responsible for engaging new researchers, undertaking collaborative uptake projects to develop or improve the performance of computational tools/workflows, and presents training material focused on computational research.
Alexis is a University lecturer, he has received numerous awards and published a number of journal articles.
Basha obtained his PhD in Mechanical Engineering from UTM Malaysia.
Basha has extensive experience in parallel algorithms and numerical methods related to computational Fluid Dynamics, Multiphase flow and Heat transfer. He has worked on several modelling & simulation software, such as COMSOL, SolidWorks, Ansys CFX, FLUENT, ICEM CFD, Hysys, and has published more than 40 journal and conference papers in this research area.
After joining the centre, he has been actively involved in supporting users to install software, scaling and optimization of the codes. He is also involved in revising training materials and developing CFD-CPU and CFD-GPU testing codes.
