HTR solver

HTR solver: An open-source exascale-oriented task-based multi-GPU high-order code for hypersonic aerothermodynamics. In this study, the open-source Hypersonics Task-based Research (HTR) solver for hypersonic aerothermodynamics is described. The physical formulation of the code includes thermochemical effects induced by high temperatures (vibrational excitation and chemical dissociation). The HTR solver uses high-order TENO-based spatial discretization on structured grids and efficient time integrators for stiff systems, is highly scalable in GPU-based supercomputers as a result of its implementation in the Regent/Legion stack, and is designed for direct numerical simulations of canonical hypersonic flows at high Reynolds numbers. The performance of the HTR solver is tested with benchmark cases including inviscid vortex advection, low- and high-speed laminar boundary layers, inviscid one-dimensional compressible flows in shock tubes, supersonic turbulent channel flows, and hypersonic transitional boundary layers of both calorically perfect gases and dissociating air.
