Prof. Xinyu Zhao receives funding from NSF:CISE:CRII to perform large-scale fire simulations.

The project entitled “Efficient Radiative Heat Transfer Modeling in Large-Scale Combustion Systems” will optimize the a legacy radiative heat transfer code from Prof. Zhao’s lab on the Intel Xeon Phi Knights Landing processors. Currently Prof. Zhao is working with a graduate student (Peiyu Zhang) and an undergraduate student (Andrew Caratenuto) on test problems that are representative of the full-scale problems. Significant speedup has already been observed on knights landing using these test problems.
