Abstract:

We comment on the current performance of computational fluid dynamics codes on a variety of scalable computer architectures. The performance figures are derived from both the finite volume and finite element methodologies, and encompass shared, virtual shared, and distributed memory architectures, as exemplified by the SGI Origin series, CM5, and the CRAY T3DE family, respectively.
