Alya, is a parallel multiphysics CFD code of the PRACE Benchmark Suite for HPC applications. In the context of combustion, the numerical discretization is based on a second-order spatial low-dissipation finite element scheme with an explicit temporal third-order Runge-Kutta method for momentum and scalar transport. Alya has been designed to run on leading HPC systems and includes both the MPI and OpenMP models to take advantage of the distributed and the shared memory paradigms. Accelerators like GPUs are also exploited to further enhance the performance of the code.
