DescriptionAs part of the Oak Ridge Leadership Computing Facility (OLCF) Early Science program, NASA ran a series of simulations on the new, GPU-accelerated system Summit, using the flow solver FUN3D to produce solutions for a set of representative descent conditions. The raw output from these simulations was over a petabyte of data. We produced visualizations at the NASA Advanced Supercomputing Division at Ames Research Center using parallel techniques where feasible to accelerate the process. Included with this summary is an animation with some of the highlights of our visualizations so far. We discuss some of our visualization design choices, and plans for future work.
