Kick-off for project ADAPTEX
4th April 2023
Kick-off meeting of ADAPTEX took place end of March at DLR in Cologne. Six partners from academia and industry, including the German Aerospace Center (DLR), the Universities of Cologne and Aachen, Jülich Supercomputing Center and Hydrotec GmbH are collaborating on this project to improve the accuracy and performance of computational fluid dynamics simulations on supercomputers. The project will focus on the mathematical basis of the discontinuous Galerkin method on dynamically adaptive grids to enable high resolution, computationally efficient modelling of Earth system models. The project addresses applications such as ocean modelling, atmospheric transport processes, and flood simulations, with EMAC as one of its pilot applications. One goal is the development of a dynamical core with an adaptive grid in MESSy.
