Inter node parallelization of multiscale fluid particle simulation towards large-scale polymeric fluid simulation

Technical Paper


Parallelized multiscale simulation code for polymeric liquids not only microscopic simulation part but also macroscopic simulation part have been developed. Parallelization of macroscopic part of multiscale simulation arises a data inconsistency, which is solved using a data sorting algorithm. Adjusting the number of computing nodes for the macroscopic simulation to the optimal number, we have found to obtain an ideal speed-up. Numerical accuracy of the developed code has been checked by comparing with analytical solutions.
