Abstract:

Using the interface methods developed by the principal investigator and co-workers, significant progress has been made in the studies of fluid flow focused on chaotic mixing and shock interactions. The studies were carried out only in two dimensions on sequential machines. In most of the cases for realistic problems of physical interest, further progress requires development of three dimensional algorithms. These algorithms, used for scientific purposes, including multiple computation to explore the solution dependence on physical parameters, will require extensive computer resources, which cost-effective parallel computations will allow. Our collective research supported by this grant has been to develop parallel algorithms for three dimensional fluid computations based on the interface methods.
