Current role

Research Assistant involved in the Prosperity Partnership in Computational Science for Advanced Simulation and Modelling of Virtual Systems (ASiMoV). A collaboration between Rolls-Royce and a consortium of partners, including the universities of Bristol, Cambridge, Edinburgh, Oxford and Warwick ; and two local SMEs - CFMS and Zenotech.

The ASiMoV project aims to simulate an entire aircraft jet engine in operation at very high fidelity, with a goal that one day the civil aviation authorities would be confident enough to certify the virtual design. This requires efficient use of High Performance Computing (HPC) resources at Exascale, posing significant challenges to existing HPC CFD simulation codes. Specific challenges are developing tools/models to identify/assess viability of software and hardware optimisations for proprietary codes, and performance-aware 'coupling' of different CFD codes (turbine airflow and combustion).
