Davy Virdee MSc in High Performance Computing The University of Edinburgh Year of Presentation: 2011
The idea behind this thesis is to investigate and develop a large-scale three-dimensional Discrete Element Model that can simulate several millions of snow particles falling under the influence of gravity. This model can be used to simulate the behaviour of the snow particles to allow for in-elastic collisions and cohesion using high performance computing. This model is then profiled and benchmarked for scalability and finally some suggestions are listed for optimisation for future research. The project extensively studies and discusses the development of the model and the various driving factors  behind the high performance computing (HPC) solution.
