About the GPU Research Center at Universida de Vigo
Universida de Vigo was selected as a GPU Research Center based on their research developing Multi-GPU strategies for the open source DualSPHysics model. This model, especially suited to solve complex fluid problems, started from a collaborative effort amongst researchers at the Universida de Vigo (Spain), the University of Manchester (UK) and Johns Hopkins University (US). Preliminary tests carried out at Barcelona Supercomputing Center (GPU Center of Excellence) have shown promising strong and weak scalability values on the order of 85% and 100% respectively for 32 TeslaM2090 cards.
