Book Description

2 Nov 1992 0262193264 978-0262193269
Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) is one of the most important applications for high-performance computing, setting the pace for developments in scientific computing. Anyone who wants to design a new parallel computer or develop a new software tool must understand the issues involved in CFD in order to be successful. The demands of CFD, particularly in the aerospace and automotive industries, coupled with the emergence of more powerful generations of parallel supercomputers, have led naturally to work on parallel computational fluid dynamics; and initial results from using parallel machines to study the properties of liquids and gases in motion are promising. "Parallel Computational Fluid Dynamics" provides a survey of this developing field. Drawn from such different disciplines as mechanical and aeronautical engineering, computer science, and numerical methods, contributions cover implementations of CFD codes on commercially available large-scale parallel systems, Studies of parallel numerical algorithms for CFD applications, and discussions of computer science topics with direct applciation to parallel CFD. Researchers should find that "Parallel Computational Fluid Dynamics" serves a number of needs. It presents the expertise of multidisciplinary research groups that will make it possible to succeed in solving the "grand challenge" problems stimulated by the new national High Performance Computing and Communication Programme. It offers aeronautical or mechanical engineers an introduction to what has been accomplished in the last few years in CFD on parallel machines. And it provides researchers in the areas of hardware, software, and algorithms with a useful survey of CFD's computational requirements as well as a source of applications to test out new ideas.

3.0 out of 5 stars It still a good book for researchers 4 Mar 1999
By A Customer
The book is a joint effort of 31 contributors. It was written in the early 90's when computational scientists started to consider seriously the implementation and engineering application of Parallel CFD.
Although the book arised out of a Parallel CFD conference, it is more a book than a conference proceedings. The chapters are grouped into 3 parts. They are: Implementations on parallel machines, numerical algorithms for parallel CFD and performance evaluation & computer science issues.
Unlike other titles in the same series, this is NOT a user's guide nor is it a handbook for parallel CFD. If you are looking for information that will get you started in using parallel CFD(writing and porting a parallel code for e.g.) this is not the book. Instead, it provides a complete background to the mulitdisciplinary research work and important issues in this field. Methodology in parallel CFD is presented.
I feel that the material has a flavour of computere science as oppose to computational. Many ideas might have been outdated by now, however there are not many books on the subject written since this one. It is still a good book to researchers and engineers who want to be aware of all aspects of parallel CFD.
