报告题目:Fast and Versatile Fluid-Solid Coupling for Turbulent Flow Simulation


The intricate motions and complex vortical structures generated by the interaction between fluids and solids are visually fascinating. However, reproducing such a two-way coupling between thin objects and turbulent fluids numerically is notoriously challenging and computationally costly: existing approaches such as cut-cell or immersed-boundary methods have difficulty achieving physical accuracy, or even visual plausibility, of simulations involving fast-evolving flows with immersed objects of arbitrary shapes. In this paper, we propose an efficient and versatile approach for simulating two-way fluid-solid coupling within the kinetic (lattice-Boltzmann) fluid simulation framework, valid for both laminar and highly turbulent flows, and for both thick and thin objects. We introduce a novel hybrid approach to fluid-solid coupling which systematically involves a mesoscopic double-sided bounce-back scheme followed by a cut-cell velocity correction for a more robust and plausible treatment of turbulent flows near moving (thin) solids, preventing flow penetration and reducing boundary artifacts significantly. Coupled with an efficient approximation to simplify geometric computations, the whole boundary treatment method preserves the inherent massively parallel computational nature of the kinetic method. Moreover, we propose simple GPU optimizations of the core LBM algorithm which achieve an even higher computational efficiency than the state-of-the-art kinetic fluid solvers in graphics. We demonstrate the accuracy and efficacy of our two-way coupling through various challenging simulations involving a variety of rigid body solids and fluids at both high and low Reynolds numbers. Finally, comparisons to existing methods on benchmark data and real experiments further highlight the superiority of our method.

报告题目:Stable, Scalable Spectral Methods for Fluid Simulation


In this talk, we introduce Stable, Scalable Spectral Methods for Fluid Simulation. First, we introduce Scalable Laplacian Eigenfluids. In this method, we present a set of analytical basis functions that can be used to effectively represent the velocity field of the fluid. We show that by carefully applying the discrete sine and cosine transforms, the storage costs of the basis functions can be made completely negligible. The resulting algorithm is both faster and more memory-efficient than previous approaches. Next, we introduce a fast, expressive spectral method for simulating fluids over radial domains, including discs, spheres, cylinders, ellipses, spheroids, and tori. We do this by generalizing the approach of Laplacian Eigenfunctions, resulting in what we call spiral-spectral fluid simulations. We show basis functions that support scalable FFT-based reconstruction can be analytically constructed.
