Optimad at SISSA

On 23rd september 2014 c/o SISSA – International School for Advanced Studies – in Trieste, dr. Haysam Telib will hold the seminar “Bitpit: a numerical sandpit for bridging scientific computing and industrial applications”. Bitpit is a communicating collection of open-source C++ libraries and interfaces to third party libraries, which aims at helping scientific computing community to deliver easily¬† a first prototype of their application to industry. The general design philosophy is to transfer complexity from humans to the machines by relying massively on HPC resources: easy but scalable algorithms are preferred over highly-optimised variants even if they may perform better on workstation-like computers. Within this talk the general architecture of the bitpit framework and the state of its implementations will be illustrated. Furthermore applications from the automotive and aeronautical industry as well as from urban planning will be presented.
