Blog: The wake passing effect in LPTs with Nektar++

In a gas turbine engine, the pressure expansion through the high- and low-pressure turbines (LPT) is achieved in a number of subsequent stages. The interaction of multiple stages of rotors and stators is a crucial source of deterministic unsteadiness which has repercussions on the loss production mechanisms, and it is thus of great importance to […]

Implementation of high-performance GPU kernels in Nektar++

Implementation of high-performance GPU kernels in Nektar++ Due to the recent evolution of high performance computing hardware from single-core central processing units (CPUs) to multi-core CPUs and the emergence of general purpose graphics processing units (GPGPUs or short GPUs), these shared memory systems are now characterised by a high degree of parallelism. They also possess […]
