Acceleration of plume dispersion simulation using locally mesh-refined lattice Boltzmann method

Onodera, Naoyuki; Idomura, Yasuhiro

A large-scale simulation of the environmental dynamics of radioactive substances is very important from the viewpoint of nuclear security. Recently, GPU has been emerging as one of high performance devices to realize a large-scale simulation with less power consumption. We design a plume dispersion simulation based on the AMR-based LBM. We measure the performance of the LBM code on the GPU-rich supercomputer TSUBAME 3.0 at Tokyo Tech. We achieved good weak scaling from 4 GPUs to 144 GPUs, and 30 times higher node performance with CPUs. The code is validated against a wind tunnel test which was released from the National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology (AIST). The computational grids are subdivided by the AMR method, and the total number of grid points is reduced to less than 10% compared to the finest meshes. In spite of the fewer grid points, the turbulent statistics and plume dispersion are in good agreement with the experiment data.
