Overview

Musubi

Musubi is the multi-level parallel lattice Boltzmann solver within the APES suite. It is working on a linearized octree and uses efficient data structures allowing adaptive parallel simulations. Musubi offers several collision kernels and is designed in a way to deal with huge meshes very efficiently.

How to compile

Musubi makes use of the waf, to manage the compilation.

You will need to have an MPI wrapper for your Fortran compiler and have the FC environment variable set to that, typically that is: export FC=mpif90

You can configure your compilation with:

./waf configure

and then build the executable with

./waf build

How to run

Musubi comes with a collection of cases so you can start simulating right away. Have a look at the testsuite/physics folder.

Documentation

For further details see the Doxygen documentation.

Musubi is member of the High-Q-Club and demonstrated its scalability on the Juqueen at the FZ-Juelich.
