Numerical turbulence simulation on different parallel computers using the sparse grid combination method

Workshop 07 Parallel Numerical Algorithms
Part of the Lecture Notes in Computer Science book series (LNCS, volume 1124)


The parallel numerical solution of the Navier-Stokes equations with the sparse grid combination method was studied. This algorithmic concept is based on the independent solution of many problems with reduced size and their linear combination. The algorithm for 3-dimensional problems is described. Its parallel implementation on an IBM SP2 and a cluster of 16 HP workstations is discussed.
