Extension of the massively parallel code AMITEX: non-periodic, GPU, coupling

Engineering sciences Materials and applications Mechanics, energetics, process engineering


The AMITEX code developed by CEA is a massively parallel code (distributed memory), using Discrete Fourier Transforms, for the numerical simulation of the mechanical behavior of heterogeneous materials. It overcomes the limitations (in size and computation time) encountered by standard finite-element codes used in the same context. A stabilized version of the code, available to the public at https://amitexfftp.github.io/AMITEX/, is used by various national (Mines Paris, ONERA, ENSTA Bretagne, I2M-ENSAM Bordeaux, Météo-France, etc.) and international (USA, UK, China, Canada, Germany, Finland, Poland, etc.) teams.
The aim of the post-doc, proposed over two years, is threefold: to extend the field of application of the AMITEX code to non-periodic boundary conditions, to explore a possible adaptation to hybrid CPU/GPU architectures, and to use these extensions to develop FFT-based multi-scale couplings. This objective is built around the 2decomp open source library, on which AMITEX is based, and whose development was taken over in 2022 (https://github.com/2decomp-fft/2decomp-fft)[1] by a French-English team.
The various tasks of the post-doc consist of :
- extend the functionalities of the AMITEX code (non-periodic BC) by introducing different types of discrete transforms (sine, cosine, Fourier) within the 2decomp library,
- explore 2decomp's current development towards the use of hybrid CPU/GPU architectures, with the aim of setting up a first AMITEX-GPU code,
- use this new functionality for multi-scale coupling, where a local (refined) simulation interacts with a global (unrefined) simulation [3] via non-periodic boundary conditions.
