Where: AMPHOS21, Barcelona, Spain

PFLOTRAN is an open source, petascale reactive multiphase flow and transport code founded upon the parallel PETSc framework and designed to run on computers ranging from laptops to supercomputers.  PFLOTRAN is being employed by users from around the world to simulate problems of varying complexity, from simple 1D transport to large 3D multiphase flow and biogeochemical reaction in heterogeneous porous media.  This three-day short course and workshop provides an introduction to PFLOTRAN during the first two days, with the third day reserved for advanced topics and user-defined problems.

Topics during the first two days will include:

  • Introduction to process models and governing equations
  • Code compilation and installation
  • Input deck design and layout
  • Execution and visualization of tutorial problems

Advanced topics for the third day can include:

  • Process models supporting radioactive waste management
  • Setup of input decks for attendee-defined problems
  • Complex input decks (e.g. Python scripting, mapping datasets, etc.)
  • How to contribute capability to the PFLOTRAN project

All experience levels are welcome to attend, from beginners to advanced users. Participants must bring their own laptop with a USB port. During the short course, we will distribute USB flash drives with all the software required for the short course pre-installed, therefore participants do not have to have PFLOTRAN prior to the workshop.

We strongly encourage you to register online before the final registration deadline (August 27th 2017).
