Portable HPC Toolbox for simulating and inverting wavefields
Fields of application are related to geophysical studies but can be transferred to other fields where wave propagation plays a prominent role, for example medical ultrasonics.To simulate (acoustic) waves typically explicit finite difference solvers are used.
Specific goals of the wave project are:
- porting and further developing established FD algorithms into an C++ library
- implementing an adaptive grid to increase the spatial sampling for complex structures
- balancing the load for nodes on (heterogeneous) HPC systems
- providing a hardware-independent software
The HPC Toolbox will be tested as an example on seismic exploration data provided by TEEC GmbH.
