- The appropriate utilization of massively parallel computers for solving the Navier-Stokes equations is investigated and determined from an engineering perspective. The issues investigated are: (1) Should strip or patch domain decomposition of the spatial mesh be used to reduce computer time? (2) How many computer nodes should be used for a problem with a given sized mesh to reduce computer time? (3) Is the convergence of the Navier-Stokes solution procedure (LU-SGS) adversely influenced by the domain decomposition approach? The results of the paper show that the present Navier-Stokes solution technique has good performance on a massively parallel computer for transient flow problems. For steady-state problems with a large number of mesh cells, the solution procedure will require significant computer time due to an increased number of iterations to achieve a converged solution. There is an optimum number of computer nodes to use for a problem with a given global mesh size.
