The ADAPT Approach

  • Dynamic Event Tree (DET) driver developed by Sandia National Labs in 2006 and rewritten in python in 2010
  • Tracks DET database, launches jobs, and presents results
  • Jobs may be run on local machines up to High Performance Computers (HPCs)
  • Supports linking multiple simulator codes
  • Calculates figures of merit using time-dependent output data

ADAPT is designed to be simulator- and domain-neutral

  • Simulators must meet a short list of requirements
  • Capable of restarting from saved state with new input
  • Simulator interactions are performed via signal files
    • Emphasis on traceability
    • Enables portability over diverse computational hosts
