Glossary

CFD
"Computational Fluid Dynamics"; the prediction of the behaviour of fluids and of the effects of fluid motion past objects by numerical methods rather than model experiments

CUDA
"Compute Unified Device Architecture"; NVIDIA’s parallel computing architecture which enables increases in computing performance by harnessing the power of the GPU

Culises
In-house developed CUDA library by FluiDyna GmbH for solving large systems of linear equations on GPUs

GPU Computing (or GPGPU)
Use of a GPU (graphics processing unit) to do general purpose scientific and engineering computing

HPC
High-Performance Computing, use of supercomputers or clusters of supercomputers:  Application of supercomputers to computational problems that are either too large for standard computers or would take too long

OpenFOAM®
