Description Paper from the AFRC 2018 conference titled Leveraging the Uintah Computational Framework for Commercial Simulation of Industrial Flares
Abstract With funding from the Department of Energy, to further the use of government funded high; performance computing (HPC) software in the analysis of industrial problems, REI is working; with the University of Utah to leverage the Uintah Computational Framework for simulation of; industrial flares. The Phase I program leveraged the strength of the LES basis of the Arches; component of the UCF, along with its demonstrated scalability to O(100K) processes, to simulate; industrial two industrial flares that were tested as part of the Texas Commission on Environmental; Quality (TCEQ) flare study completed in 2010.; The air-assist flare design from the TCEQ study was the basis of an Arches simulation that was; carried out on the Nimbix commercial HPC facility. The Nimbix platform was selected as the; commercial HPC provider due to its containerized cloud computing capabilities which streamlined; our efforts in developing a web-based interface between the computing resources and Arches.; During the Phase I program, a basic user interface was developed for easing the flare case; definition and setup, case monitoring, and post processing. In addition to the air-assist flare; simulation, a simulation of a steam-assist flare design from the TCEQ study was also carried out.; This paper will present the results of the two flare simulations using resources from a commercial; HPC facility.
