Chunlei Liang Colloquium “High-order Spectral Difference Method for Studying Marine Hydrodynamics and Thermal Convection and Magneto-hydrodynamics for the Sun”
November 1, 2019 @ 2:00 PM - 3:00 PM
Two recent advancements of high-order spectral difference (SD) method for computational fluid dynamics on unstructured meshes will be presented. The first progress is our contribution to a new curved sliding-mesh approach to the SD method for simulating flapping and rotary wing aerodynamics. The second elevation of the SD method is our recent successful design of a massively parallel code, namely CHORUS, for predicting thermal convection in the Sun. Recently, we have also built a simulation capability for predicting magnetohydrodynamics of the Sun.
