Abstract

The development of a parallel three-dimensional code for incompressible flows is presented. The solver is based on a third order upwind method. The artificial compressibility formulation is used for coupling the continuity with the momentum equations. The time integration is obtained by an explicit Runge-Kutta scheme. Parallelization on block-structured grids is obtained by using shared-memory, as well as, message-passing model. 1 Introduction The last few years the requirements for solving increasingly more complex problems have provided a driving force for the extensive development of par- allel computing machines. The research on parallel computational methods and codes is continuously growing with the development of new solvers and the inv
