I was interested in running a compressible simulation with PyFR.  The target 
Reynolds number would be 2.146e+06.  A p4 mesh would likely consist of around 
15e+06 hexes.  Freddie’s spreadsheet, if I’m reading correctly, estimates a 3-D 
double-precision Navier-Stokes problem would require 3.7e+13 bytes or 35.2GiB 
of memory to run.  Again, correct me if I’m wrong, but if I recall the 
tilmestep should be somewhere between 1/p and 1/p^2 which would be between 0.25 
and 0.0625 for a 4th order simulation.  Ideally, I would like to run this out 
to steady state.

AWS has p3 instances with 1, 4, and 8 NVIDIA V100 cards available each with 
16GB of memory, 5120 CUDA cores, and 7TFLOPS of double-precision performance.  
Is this problem tractable in the latest PyFR release?  Does PyFR provide an 
inlet boundary condition where a total pressure and total temperature profile 
can be specified?
