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 parallel computations. The exchange of information between subdomains is due to overlapped boundaries at the block interfaces. The sequential solver is parallelized using the PVM (Parallel Virtual Machine) message-passing library routines in a master-slave paradigm. A PC cluster of Pentium processors running on Linux operating system, which are connected over a local network using Transmission Control Protocol/Internet Protocol (TCP/IP), is used for computations. PVM version 3.4 is used as the communication library. To test the performance of the parallel algorithm, subsonic, transonic and supersonic channel flows over a Ni-bump are considered.

Rigorous Solutions of Electromagnetic Problems Involving Hundreds of Millions of Unknowns
Ergül, Özgür Salih (2011-02-01)
Accurate simulations of real-life electromagnetic problems with integral equations require the solution of dense matrix equations involving millions of unknowns. Solutions of these extremely large problems cannot be easily achieved, even when using the most powerful computers with state-of-the-art technology. Hence, many electromagnetic problems in the literature have been solved by resorting to various approximation techniques, without controllable error. In this paper, we present full-wave solutions of sc...

Fully computable convergence analysis of discontinous Galerkin finite element approximation with an arbitrary number of levels of hanging nodes
Özışık, Sevtap; Kaya Merdan, Songül; Riviere, Beatrice M.; Department of Mathematics (2012)
In this thesis, we analyze an adaptive discontinuous finite element method for symmetric second order linear elliptic operators. Moreover, we obtain a fully computable convergence analysis on the broken energy seminorm in first order symmetric interior penalty discontin- uous Galerkin finite element approximations of this problem. The method is formulated on nonconforming meshes made of triangular elements with first order polynomial in two di- mension. We use an estimator which is completely free of unknow...
Least squares differential quadrature time integration scheme in the dual reciprocity boundary element method solution of convection-diffusion problems
Bozkaya, Canan (2005-03-18)
The least squares differential quadrature method (DQM) is used for solving the ordinary differential equations in time, obtained from the application of the dual reciprocity boundary element method (DRBEM) for the spatial partial derivatives in convection-diffusion type problems. The DRBEM enables us to use the fundamental solution of the Laplace equation which is easy to implement computationally. The time derivative and the convection terms are considered as the nonhomogeneity in the equation which are ap...
Aerodynamic design optimization of three dimensional rocket nozzles using adjoint method
Eyi, Sinan (null; 2013-09-13)
A design optimization method based on three dimensional Euler equations is developed. A finite volume method is implemented to discretize the Euler equations. Newton's method is used to solve the discretized form of Euler equations. Newton's method requires the calculation of the Jacobian matrix which is the derivative of the residual vector with respect to the flux vector. Different upwind methods are used in the calculation of flux vectors. Numerical and analytical methods are utilized in the evaluation o...
