Divide and Conquer: Modeling Large-Scale Hydraulics Faster Webinar
Yong Lai, US
Time & Location
29 Oct 2021, 18:00 BST – 30 Oct 2021, 19:00 BST
About the Event
The Bureau of Reclamation (Reclamation) Sedimentation and River Hydraulics (SRH) Group and Freelancer.com are hosting a webinar about the Divide and Conquer Challenge. The $300,000.00 USD Divide and Conquer Challenge seeks solutions to improve the execution speed of models that simulate flow hydraulics and sediment transport in rivers and reservoirs.
The webinar is an opportunity for you to learn:
- The background of the challenge
- What Reclamation is seeking in the solutions
- How to participate in the challenge
- Live Q&A with Reclamation
Challenge details: The Reclamation SRH Group is looking for solutions to improve how quickly engineers can model flow hydraulics and sediment transport in rivers and reservoirs. If you can create a parallel linear equation sparse matrix solver (LESMS) that runs on a multi-core Windows desktop PC, is more stable than the current Reclamation solver, and achieves scalable parallel speedup, you could win your share of the Phase 1 $100,000 prize. If you can parallelize Reclamation’s 2D model, incorporating your LESMS and achieving scalable parallel speedup, you could win a share of another $200,000 prize in Phase 2.
