Computational fluid dynamics on a massively parallel computer
Abstract
A finite difference code was implemented for the compressible NavierStokes equations on the Connection Machine, a massively parallel computer. The code is based on the ARC2D/ARC3D program and uses the implicit factored algorithm of Beam and Warming. The codes uses oddeven elimination to solve linear systems. Timings and computation rates are given for the code, and a comparison is made with a Cray XMP.
