Major Past Projects

The FP7 infrastructure project LinkSCEEM that ended in 2015 help established the CaSToRC as a regional computational center for the Eastern Mediterranean. Through the coordination of the €3 million project, CaSToRC organized 64 training events in Cyprus, Egypt, Jordan, Greece, Israel, Lebanon and Turkey reaching a total of over 1500 scientists.  CaSToRC personnel trained in High Performance Computing (HPC) help spread the know-how to the region.

FSI: Accelerating FSI solvers using General Purpose Graphical Processing Units (GPGPUs)

The objective is to develop new algorithms that can be used to solve fluid-structure interaction (FSI) problems. FSI problems are ones where the flow interacts with structures like its boundaries or embedded particles, for example the flow of blood in the arteries and veins, the interaction of blood and heart valves, the flow of aqueous humor in the eyes, breathing, swallowing, movement of food in the alimentary canal. The flow affects the shape of these structures which in turn affects the flow features. FSI is an active and very challenging area of a computational fluid dynamics (CFD) research with particular relevance to biomedical engineering. The serial algorithms and developed source code will be further optimized using parallelization techniques.
