Barracuda Virtual Reactor is the industry-standard tool for simulating fluidized bed reactors (FBRs) for many applications in refining, petrochemicals, cement manufacture, power generation, and other energy-intensive industries. The same award-winning technology is also enabling sustainability technologies including advanced recycling of plastics, waste-to-energy/fuels/chemicals, renewable fuels, hydrogen production, and other decarbonization applications. The complexity of FBR simulation lends itself well to acceleration via GPU computing. Virtual Reactor utilizes NVIDIA’s multi-GPU computing technology to achieve 50-400x speedups over serial processing. This session demonstrates how the NVIDIA DGX A100 provides multi-GPU compute capabilities to everyday software users, in a form factor that fits under a desk or in the data center. Week-long simulations can now be completed in an hour, and previously intractable problems are now solved in industrially relevant time scales.
