Abstract

This paper summarizes our progress and experience in the development of a Computational-Fluid-Dynamics code on parallel computers to simulate three-dimensional spatially-developing mixing layers. In this initial study, the three-dimensional time-dependent Euler equations are solved using a finite-volume explicit time-marching algorithm. The code was first programmed in Fortran 77 for sequential computers. The code was then converted for use on parallel computers using the conventional message-passing technique as well as the newly developed High-Performance Fortran (HPF) language. We obtained good speedup of the code using the message-passing technique, while we have not been able to compile the code with the present version of HPF compilers.
