We present an open source, object-oriented software for high throughput Direct Numerical Simulations of compressible, two-phase flows. The Navier-Stokes equations are discretized on uniform grids using high order finite volume methods. The software exploits recent CPU micro-architectures by explicit vectorization and adopts NUMA-aware techniques as well as data and computation reordering. We report a compressible flow solver with unprecedented fractions of peak performance: 45% of the peak for a single node (nominal performance of 840 GFLOP/s) and 30% for a cluster of 47'000 cores (nominal performance of 0.8 PFLOP/s). We suggest that the present work may serve as a performance upper bound, regarding achievable GFLOP/s, for two-pagse flow solvers using adaptive mesh refinement. The software enables 3D simulations of shock-bubble interaction including, for the first time, effects of diffusion and surface tension, by efficiently employing two hundred billion computational elements.
