The research work done in the CASE department is truly multidisciplinary, requiring a deep level of expertise in many fields. In order to successfully develop our applications, the skills of the CASE team in numerical methods and parallel programming must be complemented by experts in the appropriate areas. CASE develops collaborations with other scientific groups in all fields of science and technology, complemented with strong links with Industrial partners who are in need of advanced simulations of complex technology problems. The main objective of the CASE Department is to create new simulation tools with advanced HPC techniques to solve complex problems in science and technology fields.
To achieve its objectives, the CASE team develops and co-develops five main high performance codes, which are used in national/international projects and are the core of the collaborations and contracts with companies:
- : HPC Multiphysics code. It solves Fluid mechanics, Solid mechanics, Electric propagation, Combustion, etc.
- FAll3D: Volcanos ash transport. Used in production in South American Volcanic Ash Advisory Centres (VAAC).
- BSIT (Barcelona Seismic Imaging Tools): Acoustic/Elastic waves, Forward Modelling, RTM, FWI. Promoted by Repsol.
- SIESTA: Ab-initio molecular dynamics. CASE is a co-developer of this code.
