Dr Peter Vincent

Reader in Aeronautics and EPSRC Fellow
Department of Aeronautics Imperial College London (Confirmed)

Dr Peter Vincent is a Reader and EPSRC Early Career Fellow working in the department of Aeronautics at Imperial College London. He holds a First Class MSc degree in Physics from Imperial College (graduating top of the year), and a PhD in computational fluid dynamics from the department of Aeronautics at Imperial College. He has also studied in the U.S., serving as a Postdoctoral Scholar in the department of Aeronautics and Astronautics at Stanford University.

  • Accurate simulation of unsteady turbulent flow in the vicinity of complex geometric configurations is critical for improved design of e.g. turbine stages, and hence ‘greener’ aircraft that are more fuel-efficient.
  • Will demonstrate application of PyFR, a high-order accurate Python based computational fluid dynamics solver, to petascale simulation of flow over low-pressure turbine linear cascades.
  • Rationale behind algorithmic choices, which offer increased levels of accuracy and enable sustained computation at up to 13.7 DP-PFLOP/s on unstructured grids, will be discussed in the context of modern hardware.
  • A range of software innovations will also be detailed, including use of runtime code generation, which enables PyFR to efficiently target multiple platforms, including heterogeneous systems, via a single implementation.
