High Performance Computing Applications

Open access


High Performance Computing (HPC) is required for many important applications in chemistry, computational fluid dynamics, etc., see, e.g., an overview in [1]. In this paper we shortly describe an application (a multiscale material design problem) that requires HPC for several reasons. The problem of interest is analysis of the fiber-reinforced concrete and we focus on modelling of stiffness through numerical homogenization and computing local material properties by inverse analysis. Both problems require a repeated solution of large-scale finite element problems up to 200 million degrees of freedom and therefore the importance of HPC computing is evident.
