We have developed a highly scalable and efficient GPU-based finite-difference code (AWP) for earthquake simulation that implements high throughput, memory locality, communication reduction and communication  ...  Moreover, we show that AWP provides a speedup by a factor of 110 in key strain tensor calculations critical to probabilistic seismic hazard analysis (PSHA).  ...  The fractal roughness is controlled by a Hurst number, which we set at 0.2, and the size of the heterogeneity by a standard deviation, which we set at 5%, as constrained by near-surface and borehole velocity  ...

DeepWarp: DNN-based Nonlinear Deformation [article]

Ran Luo, Tianjia Shao, Huamin Wang, Weiwei Xu, Kun Zhou, Yin Yang
2018 IEEE Transactions on Visualization and Computer Graphics   pre-print
With the assistance of deformation substructuring, one DNN training is able to handle a wide range of 3D models of various geometries including most examples shown in the paper.  ...  DeepWarp obviates this difficulty by partially restoring the force-displacement relation via warping the nodal displacement simulated using a simplistic constitutive model -- the linear elasticity.  ...  With the linear modal reduction, the cost for the diagonalized linear solver is reduced to O(r), and one should expect more noticeable accelerations by using the GPU.  ...

Supported by such a disc, the jet attains a parabolic shape, similar to the M87 galaxy jet, and the product of the Lorentz factor and the jet half-opening angle, γθ≪ 1, similar to values found from very  ...  Thus pinched regions in the jet can be detectable as radiating hotspots and may provide an ideal site for particle acceleration.  ...  The LAT reduces the number of conserved to primitive variable inversions and thereby increases the accuracy of the simulation (Appendix A); additionally, it speeds up the code by a factor of ∼ 3−5.  ...
