NASA researcher Dr. Sharadchandr Gavali profiled the National Combustion Code (NCC) application with Open|SpeedShop. The parallel EEMD (PEEMD) is being used to analyze Hurricane Sandy (2012) for better understanding of the multiple scale processes that may have impacted Sandy's movement, intensification and formation. We have interacted with Samsung Cheung about the performance analysis of this NASA application of interest. The USM3D Navier-Stokes flow solver contributed heavily to the NASA Constellation Project (CxP) as a highly productive computational tool for generating the aerodynamic databases for the Ares I and V launch vehicles and Orion launch abort vehicle (LAV). We have interacted with Jahed Djomehri from NASA on questions about performance analysis for this application of interest at NASA. OVERFLOW was developed as part of a collaborative effort between NASA's Johnson Space Center and NASA Ames Research Center (ARC). The driving force behind this work was the need for evaluating the flow about the Space Shuttle launch vehicle. Originally developed by NASA's Pieter Buning, Dennis Jespersen and others, the code is an outgrowth of earlier codes F3D and ARC3D. We have interacted with Dennis Jespersen regarding performance analysis of the OVERFLOW application. Another NASA application of interest is Goddard Cumulus Ensemble (GCEM3D). We have exchanged emails with Daniel Kokron at NASA about performance analysis of that application.
High performance computing applications in fields such as Structural Mechanics, Computational Fluid Dynamics, Electronic Design Automation, Quantum Chemistry, Weather and Climate, Defense and Intelligence, and many other computational domains benefit from accelerators such as GPUs and Intel MIC. Companies and laboratories using these disciplines are all potential customers for the heterogeneous performance analysis capable/enabled Open|SpeedShop commercial product.
