Block-Structured Adaptive Mesh Refinement Methods for Multiphase Microgravity Flows and Star Formation: A NASA ESS Computational Technologies Project.

Under this proposal, we will develop a software framework for implementing block-structured AMR algorithms, based on the Chombo C++ framework for AMR applications developed at at LBNL. There are two components to this activity. The first is the development of algorithm and software enhancements to the Chombo library to enable the support of of two applications areas in the HPCC ESS project: microgravity and star formation. The second is the development of a data visualization and analysis package, called ChomboVis, that will meet the needs of a broad range of ESS users of block-structured AMR.
