============ INTRODUCTION ============ Bluebottle is a GPU-centric finite-difference incompressible Navier-Stokes flow solver coupled with the Physalis method for fully resolving spherical particles dispersed throughout the flow. It is a research code being developed by Adam Sierakowski (firstname.lastname@example.org) under the supervision of Prof. Andrea Prosperetti at the Johns Hopkins University. Bluebottle is capable of simulating particle-laden fluid flows in configurations ranging from particles in Stokes flow to flows at moderate Reynolds number. Since particles are fully resolved within the flow solver, Bluebottle accurately captures the physical behavior of these fluid flows at arbitrary particle volume fraction. Bluebottle has been used to investigate particle behavior in channel flows, shear flows, sedimentation, and other canonical situations with up to 8,000 particles in domains consisting of over 30-million degrees of freedom on a single GPU. Constructed with the primary goal of bringing to bear the power inherent in today's GPU hardware on particle flow physics simulations, Bluebottle has been shown to operate up to 100 times faster than a legacy CPU implementation. ==================== OBTAINING BLUEBOTTLE ==================== Bluebottle has been released under the Apache License, Version 2.0, and it is available for download at http://github.com/groundcherry/bluebottle. ===================== INSTALLING BLUEBOTTLE ===================== For installation instructions, see the accompanying INSTALL document. ======================== BLUEBOTTLE DOCUMENTATION ======================== The most recent documentation can be found on the Bluebottle Wiki at http://lucan.me.jhu.edu. ========================= QUESTIONS AND BUG REPORTS ========================= Bluebottle is an academic research code being actively developed.
