The NSinker benchmark
The NSinker benchmark#
This is the “NSinker” benchmark defined in
Johann Rudi, Georg Stadler, Omar Ghattas. Weighted BFBT Preconditioner for Stokes Flow Problems with Highly Heterogeneous Viscosity SIAM J. Sci. Comput., 39(5), S272–S297. https://doi.org/10.1137/16M108450X
It creates a number of spherical high-viscosity, high-density sinking spheres in a box geometry that provide a challenge for the Stokes preconditioner. The difficulty of the problem is determined by the number of sinkers and the viscosity contrast between sinkers and background, which can be adjusted in the parameter file.
