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...
Implicit lattice boltzmann method for laminar/turbulent flows
Çevik, Fatih; Albayrak, Kahraman; Department of Mechanical Engineering (2016)
Lattice Boltzmann Method is an alternative computational method for fluid physics problems. The development of the method started in the late 1980s and early 1990s. Various numerical schemes like stream and collide, finite difference, finite element and finite volume schemes are used to solve the discrete Lattice Boltzmann Equation. Almost all of the numerical schemes in the literature are explicit schemes to exploit the natural features of the discrete Lattice Boltzmann Equation like parallelism and easy c...

Numerical Solution of Multi-scale Electromagnetic Boundary Value Problems by Utilizing Transformation-Based Metamaterials
Ozgun, Ozlem; Kuzuoğlu, Mustafa (2011-06-23)
We present numerical solution techniques for efficiently handling multi-scale electromagnetic boundary value problems having fine geometrical details or features, by utilizing spatial coordinate transformations. The principle idea is to modify the computational domain of the finite methods (such as the finite element or finite difference methods) by suitably placing anisotropic metamaterial structures whose material parameters are obtained by coordinate transformations, and hence, to devise easier and effic...
Application of a Robust Multigrid Technique for the Parallel Solution of Initial-Boundary Value Problems
Martynenko, S.I.; Gökalp, İskender; Bakhtin, V.A.; Karaca, Mehmet; Toktaliev, P.D.; Semenev, P.A. (2022-12-01)
This article is devoted to the construction of a parallel multigrid algorithm for the numerical solution of (non)linear initial-boundary value problems (implicit schemes) based on a robust multigrid technique (RMT). A distinctive feature of the proposed algorithm is the possibility of the parallel solution of initial-boundary value problems and initial-boundary value problems in a unified manner involving 3m independent computers (threads, if the OpenMP parallelization technology is used), m = 1, 2, 3, …. C...
