Nektar++ strong scaling performance on Mira
We have recently performed some tests of the Nektar++ incompressible Navier-Stokes solver on a Formula 1 car geometry. The tests were run on Mira up to 131k cores and show excellent scaling of of the code for massively parallel simulations.
Installing Nektar++ on OS X through MacPorts or Homebrew
This post briefly summarises how to install Nektar++ using either the MacPorts or Homebrew package managers. Both of these install a version of Nektar++ that includes MPI for parallel execution, ARPACK for stability analysis, FFTW for homogeneous expansions, PETSc support and a full set of solvers. They can also both be used to install development versions of Nektar++.
