The Alya system is a high performance computational mechanics code developed at the Barcelona Supercomputing Center (BSC). Alya is designed from scratch to take advantage of parallel architectures.

However, it is necessary to discover performance bottlenecks originating from the increase of complexity of each level of concurrency and to correct them in the source code Alya. Together with the main developer (Dr. Guillaume Houzeaux) we will use the performance analysis tools (Vampir and TAU) to investigate the performance and scalability of Alya and do some benchmarks with Alya on different computer platforms.
