COMMERCIAL

APPLICATION FIELD (e.g. physics):

Altair OptiStruct is an industry proven, modern structural analysis solver for linear and nonlinear problems under static and dynamic loadings. As a market leader for structural design and optimization, OptiStruct helps designers and engineers analyze and optimize structures for their strength, durability and NVH (noise, vibration and harshness) characteristics and rapidly develop innovative, lightweight and structurally efficient designs.

SHORT DESCRIPTION OF THE APPLICATION
AND HOW OPENMP IS BEING UTILIZED:

OptiStruct is the implicit finite element analysis and optimization software. OpenMP is used extensively for parallel computing in sparse equation solvers in both the shared memory and distributed memory versions of OptiStruct.

APPLICATION/PRODUCT NAME:
Altair® FEKO®

IS IT PUBLIC/OPEN SOURCE/PRIVATE/COMMERCIAL?:
COMMERCIAL

APPLICATION FIELD (e.g. physics):

FEKO is a comprehensive computational electromagnetics (CEM) code used widely in the telecommunications, automobile, aerospace, marine, and defense industries. Applications include the analysis of antennas, microstrip circuits and biomedical systems, the placement of antennas on electrically large structures, the calculation of scattering as well as the investigation of electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) effects (shielding, cable coupling etc.).

SHORT DESCRIPTION OF THE APPLICATION
AND HOW OPENMP IS BEING UTILIZED:

FEKO offers several EM field solvers (rigorous full wave methods and asymptotic high frequency techniques) which are hybridized to enable the efficient analysis of a very broad spectrum of EM problems. All of these techniques have been rigorously parallelized using MPI. OpenMP is employed for some phases as well (for the time being linear algebra, Finite Difference Time Domain solver, certain phases of the Multilevel Fast Multipole Method). Extending more techniques in FEKO to use OpenMP in combination with MPI is actively pursued.

MATLAB NaN and TSA toolboxes

A time series analysis, statistics and machine learning toolbox for Octave and Matlab® for data with and without MISSING VALUES encoded as NaN’s. (Statistics, Machine Learning, Signal processing)

The NaN-toolbox is free software licensed under GPL v3+

The TSA- and the NaN- toolboxes are able to handle data with missing values (encoded as NaN).
The main idea is that NaN’s can be skipped, the expectation values  can be obtained by ignoring
“missing” values. OpenMP is used in two core functions (sumskipnan_mex and covm_mex), which
compute the sum, the covariance matrix, and counts the samples which are not NaN.

The NaN-toolbox is about 30000 lines in total of both projects. The core functions using OpenMP contain aboout 1800 lines of C/C++ and Matlab/Octave and is available on Linux + Matlab/Octave, Win32/Win64 +  Matlab, Debian/Ubuntu + Octave.

FEATURES OF OPENMP USED:

#pragma omp for schedule(dynamic) nowait

RiverFLO-2D

RiverFLO-2D is a commercial, two-dimensional hydraulic engineering model that solves the depth-averaged shallow water equations with the finite element method. The model uses triangular-element meshes that can have several hundred of thousand of elements and an explicit time integration scheme that constrain the time-step, resulting in considerable computational effort for time-varying simulations.

The code is written in Fortran 95 and the executable is generated with the Intel Fortran compiler. To improve the model performance we make extensive use of OpenMP to parallelize  the main element loops on multiple-core platforms. Our test with up to 6-core processors indicate the code scales reasonably well turning off hyper-threading.  (Fortran 95/2003 using Intel Visual Fortran Composer XE 12.1 on MS-Windows)

FEATURES OF OPENMP USED: Parallel regions, Parallel do’s, private, reduction, etc.

libdoubanm

This is a private library used to support a website.

libdoubanm is a data mining library, contains optimization and matrix/vector algorithms (sparse and dense, SVD, etc). OpenMP is used (with MPI) to parallelize the code.

With OpenMP, the threads number is reduced to one at each machine, messages volume in MPI is reduced, and the time/speed is improved greatly.

OpenMP is used to parallelize the matrix/vector operations automatically (just a flag to toggle on/off, based on OpenMP’s parallel for). OpenMP’s task is used for graph visit.

41305 lines of  C++, Python on Linux using: parallel for, schedule, task
