Numerical simulation of industrial Plasma
Abstract: Provide the research community with a cloud-based simulation tool for plasma simulations, which is one of the more challenging problems in the engineering sciences. The goal is to develop a fully coupled, massively parallel and scalable solver for the simulation industrial plasmas, in complex geometries. The tool should reduce simulation times by at least a factor 100 and be made available to researchers on Microsoft Azure. Typical simulations will use 100 cores or more and run for many hours.
