[ contact / participants ]

evaluation of porting an existing computational fluid dynamics and associated visualisation code to European made MIMD and SIMD platforms

Objectives and Approach

During the first year, both PHOENICS (CFD program) and CFView (visualisation program) have been ported to a MIMD and a SIMD machine. This will enable a comparison between the two ports to be made. The effectiveness of the MIMD implementation will be evaluated on two full industrial test cases in a link to the EUROPORT-1 project (8421).

The key features of the chosen platforms are:
