This project will provide state-of-the-art predictive capabilities for simulating systems central to advancing the U.S. Army’s modernization priorities related to long-range precision fires and future vertical lift platforms. The goals of the project are to: (1) Produce geometry and meshing technologies that support the modeling and discretization techniques needed to explicitly track evolving/interacting components and material phases. (2) Couple with a developing finite element analysis capability that includes the range of models needed to address both internal and externals ballistics. (3) Work directly with U.S. Army ARDEC RDAR-DSM and RDAR-WSB personnel on long-range precision fire relevant simulations. (4) Work with ARL-VTD and Sikorsky on the application of the geometry and meshing technologies developed to future vertical lift platforms. Since the level of computation required for these simulations can only be addressed through the application of large-scale parallel computers, and the simulation workflow components must closely interact throughout the simulation, all the geometry, meshing and analysis components will operate in parallel interacting through well-defined interfaces. The parallel evolving geometry and meshing components developed in this project will be of substantial interest to the military and civilian applications across a broad range of industries that now regularly apply large-scale simulations.
