Abstract

On a coarse-grained parallel code to simulate reactive flows on an IBM RS/6000 workstation-cluster F.-K. Hebeker IBM 2c2en^c Cenfer, f .0. Boz Heidelberg, Germany INTRODUCTION The present note is a continuation based on previous work *•) in a joint research project with the Daimler-Benz AO, Stuttgart. Our aim is to get insight into physical reasons of knock damage in internal com- bustion engines. We invoke numerical simulation methods and take advantage of modern computer architecture. This work combines engineering-mathematical modelling with algorithmic and code devel- opment. Parallel processing is used on an IBM RS/6000 high-end workstation cluster. Prohibiting knock damage in the spark ignited Otto engine forms severe restrictions concerning the efficiency of the engine. Whereas laboratory experiments pertaining to material thermal or mechanical loading are expensive or even impossible, numerical techniques were provided here as a helpful tool but have been, howeve
