Description/Abstract

The description of multiple, complex, three-dimensional geometries such a yacht sails is a non-trivial task. The use of unstructured and hybrid grids provide more flexibility to the task of computationally representing such geometries. This paper outlines the parallel implementation of an explicit Euler solver, developed to allow the use of any cell topology using customised data structures. The utilisation of these data structures for adaptive gridding and dynamic load balancing is described, whilst near ideal speed-ups demonstrate the efficiency of the parallel algorithm on an IBM SP2.
