Parallel implementation of a gas-kinetic BGK method on unstructured grids for 3-D inviscid missile flows

A 3-D gas-kinetic BGK method and its parallel solution algorithm are developed for the computation of inviscid missile flows on unstructured grids. Flow solutions over a supersonic missile are presented to validate the accuracy and robustness of the method. It is shown that the computation time, which is an important deficiency of gas-kinetic BGK methods, may significantly be reduced by performing computations in parallel. © 2009 Springer-Verlag Berlin Heidelberg.


Parallel-MLFMA Solutions of Large-Scale Problems Involving Composite Objects
Ergül, Özgür Salih (2012-07-14)
We present a parallel implementation of the multilevel fast multipole algorithm (MLFMA) for fast and accurate solutions of large-scale electromagnetics problems involving composite objects with dielectric and metallic parts. Problems are formulated with the electric and magnetic current combined-field integral equation (JMCFIE) and solved iteratively with MLFMA on distributed-memory architectures. Numerical examples involving canonical and complicated objects, such as optical metamaterials, are presented to...

A parallel implementation of the multilevel fast multipole algorithm (MLFMA) is developed for fast and accurate solutions of electromagnetics problems involving complex plasmonic metamaterial structures. Composite objects that consist of multiple penetrable regions, such as dielectric, lossy, and plasmonic parts, are formulated rigorously with surface integral equations and solved iteratively via MLFMA. Using the hierarchical strategy for the parallelization, the developed implementation is capable of simul...
Parallel processing of two-dimensional euler equations for compressible flows
Doǧru, K.; Aksel, M.h.; Tuncer, İsmail Hakkı (2008-12-01)
A parallel implementation of a previously developed finite volume algorithm for the solution of two-dimensional, unsteady, compressible Euler equations is given. The conservative form of the Euler equations is discretized with a second order accurate, one-step Lax-Wendroff scheme. Local time stepping is utilized in order to accelerate the convergence. For the parallel implementation of the method, the solution domain is partitioned into a number of subdomains to be distributed to separate processors for par...
Recursive Two-Way Parabolic Equation Approach for Modeling Terrain Effects in Tropospheric Propagation
Ozgun, Ozlem (2009-09-01)
The Fourier split-step method is a one-way marching-type algorithm to efficiently solve the parabolic equation for modeling electromagnetic propagation in troposphere. The main drawback of this method is that it characterizes only forward-propagating waves, and neglects backward-propagating waves, which become important especially in the presence of irregular surfaces. Although ground reflecting boundaries are inherently incorporated into the split-step algorithm, irregular surfaces (such as sharp edges) in...
Parallel computation of forward radiated noise of ducted fans with acoustic treatment
Özyörük, Yusuf (2002-03-01)
Forward radiated noise of ducted fans is computed numerically on parallel processors solving the three-dimensional, time-dependent Euler equations in body-conformed coordinates with a fourth-order-accurate, finite-difference, Runge-Kutta time-integration scheme. Sound attenuation effects of inlet wall acoustic treatment are included in computations employing a time-discrete form of the standard impedance condition. A distributed computing approach with domain decomposition is used for integrating the equati...
