Abstract:

The effort has had several components since it was initiated in Oct of 1989 all of these had as their objective the assistance of Dr. Joseph Shang at WRDC in the redirection of his effort toward use of massively-parallel architectures. The major objective was to gain algorithm experience in conversion of two Air Force production CFD codes to a general format applicable to a variety of commercial message-passing architectures. Earlier, an explicit N-S 3D code from WRDC had been converted to the NCUBE. This was used as a model for parallelized production code developed at WRDC under DARPA sponsorship. This effort was completed with the conversion of a serial full 3D Navier-Stokes Beam- Warming CFD code to a 1024-node scalar NCUBE hypercube at SANDIA Albuquerque.
