NIMROD TEAM MEETING SEPTEMBER 24-26, 1996 DOE HEADQUARTERS GERMANTOWN, MD AGENDA TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 24 8:30 AM. Brief Review of Pre-APS Milestones Are we on track? Detailed discussion of status deferred for specialized sessions. Kernel Development Plan: DATE MILESTONE 8/29: - Incorporation of full grid structure complete. - Implcit solve incorporated. 9/12: - Implicit field solve with susceptability tensor S incorporated. (Initially S will not contain the full plasma response.) This code will be compiled by this date, but not necessarily checked out. (Cold plasma only.) - Validation plan prepared. - Begin testing with different forms of S. 10/24: - Prepare APS posters. 11/11: - APS meeting, Denver. GUI/Pre-/Post-Processor Development DATE MILESTONE 9/15: - Create screens using Tcl/Tk. 11/1: - Limited functionality and integration with Kernel successfully demonstrated. 11/11: - APS meeting, Denver. 10:30 AM. Break 10:45 AM. Assessment of Pre-APS Progress * Identify problems * Items needing attention * Formulate plan to address problems 12:00 NOON. Lunch 1:00 PM. Report on Status of NIMROD Solver * Results * Implicit solve * Grid 3:00 PM. Break 3:15 PM. Parallel Computing/CG Issues * Portable Parallel CG Solver - Possible software from ICF3D (Alice K.) - Data formats - Collaboration with ISIS group - C++/F90 compatability issues * Higher level parallelization in NIMROD 5:00 PM Adjourn. WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 25 8:30 PM. Status of Post-Processor Development * IBM Data Explorer - Is this the permanent solution for NIMROD? * XDRAW * Interface to GUI * Ready for APS? 10:30 AM. Break 10:45 AM. Status of Pre-processor Development * Suitability of NetCDF format * NIMSET - Functionality - Interface to GUI * Ready for APS? 12:00 NOON. Lunch 1:00 PM. Status of GUI Development * Review screen functionality and functionality diagram - Look for errors/inconsistencies * Interface to Pre- and Post-processors * Progress * JAVA/Conversations with Russell Hulse * Demonstration of GUI screens * Ready for APS? 3:00 PM. Break 3:15 PM. Formulate Post-Aps Development Plan and Milestones 5:00 PM. Adjourn THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 26 8:30 AM. Any Unfinished Business and Discussions 10:00 AM. Break 10:15 AM. Other Business * Collaboration with Keldysh Institute - Possible areas for collaboration (prioritized): 1. Benchmarking and spectral pollution Benchmarking requires intensive effort that team cannot presently afford. Spectral pollution problem to be evaluated during benchmarking 2. Moving boundary/separatrix High potential payoff. Moves this up in the development schedule. 3. Gridding Lower priority for now, but problems may show up during benchmarking. * Discussion of DOE 2000 Issues * Preparation of APS presentations (discussion) * Set future meeting schedule * Action items 12:00 NOON. Adjourn.
