Advanced Simulation Library (ASL) is a free and open source hardware accelerated multiphysics simulation platform (and an extensible general purpose tool for solving Partial Differential Equations).
Its computational engine is written in OpenCL and utilizes matrix-free solution techniques which enable extraordinarily high performance, memory efficiency and deployability on a variety of massively parallel architectures, ranging from inexpensive FPGAs, DSPs and GPUs up to heterogeneous clusters and supercomputers. The engine is hidden entirely behind simple C++ classes, so that no OpenCL knowledge is required from application programmers.
Mesh-free, immersed boundary approach allows one to move from CAD directly to simulation drastically reducing pre-processing efforts and amount of potential errors. ASL can be used to model various coupled physical and chemical phenomena and employed in a multitude of fields: computational fluid dynamics, virtual sensing, industrial process data validation and reconciliation, image-guided surgery, computer-aided engineering, design space exploration, crystallography, etc.
- Numerical methods: Finite Difference, Lattice Boltzmann, Immersed Boundary.
- Computational engine: implemented in OpenCL, wrapped into C++ classes.
- Architectures: Embedded systems (FPGA, DSP), CPU, GPU, APU, MIC, clusters/supercomputers.
- Interfacing: VTK/ParaView, MATLAB (export).
- import file formats: .stl .vtp .vtk .vti .mnc .dcm.
- export file formats: .vti .mat.
- flexible and complex geometry using simple rectangular grid.
- mesh-free, immersed boundary approach allows to move from CAD directly to simulation.
- generation and manipulation of geometric primitives.
