Start Date: 15 September 1992 / Duration: 36 months / Status: ongoing

[ contact / participants ]

generation of a reference open and portable workbench to support the migration of High Performance Computing applications in science and engineering to parallel and distributed platforms

Objectives and Approach

The workbench includes:

Migration of representative kernels of state-of-the-art industrial programs are used to validate the workbench:

As a supporting activity to the EUROPORT-1 project (8421), the migration of the PAM-CRASH code will be extended to include all features relevant for a full-front car crash simulation. This will provide an industrially relevant and accepted benchmark to assist with the achievement of the goals of EUROPORT-1: the demonstration of the effectiveness of HPC Systems for industrial applications.

The workbench is demonstrated on a generic MIMD model including FORTRAN and C with portable and standardised communication extensions (PARMACS, PVM). A PARSYTEC system under PARIX with ACE FORTRAN and C Compilers and an implementation of PARMACS will serve as an example for the generic model.
