Abstract:

The study undertook to examine the utility of cellular automata in physical science calculations, especially in fluid dynamics. The scope of the study was expanded to include several related topics which would be of some interest to our sponsors. These include 1 a comparison of cellular automata CA techniques to conventional methods of solving the partial differential equations of fluid dynamics or other physical situations and 2 the utility and status of using parallel or concurrent processing machines for doing either CA or conventional fluids calculations.
