VIPER - A Tool Concept To Control Parallel CFD Applications
Free (open access)
Typical applications in the fields of the so-called Gmrzcf CWW#e5 need massive parallel computer system architectures. Tools like parallel debug- gers, performance analysers and visualizers help the code designer to develop efficient parallel algorithms. Such tools merely support the development cy- cle. But the engineer who makes use of parallel high-performance computing applications, e.g. numerical simulation algorithms in Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD), must be supported in his engineering work by another kind of tool. A user tool for the production cycle is required because con- ventional suggestions rely on serial batch-oriented procedures which have significant drawbacks, and therefore, they are not suitable to make use in nowadays High-Performance Computing (HPC).
