Parallel CFD 2015

PCFD 2015


Sunday, May 17, 2015 - 7:00 EDT to Thursday, May 21, 2015 - 7:00 EDT


Parallel CFD is an annual conference series dedicated to the discussion of recent developments and applications of parallel computing in the field of CFD and related disciplines. Since the inaugural conference in 1989, many new developments and technologies have emerged. The intervening years have also proved to be extremely volatile for many hardware vendors and a number of companies appeared and then disappeared. However, the belief that parallel computing is the only way forward has remained undiminished. Supercomputers or High Performance Computers in recent terminology all utilize parallel architectures and parallel processing. Parallel technology developed for these machines are now applied to broadband of parallel computers. Moreover, the increasing reliability and acceptance of parallel computers has seen many commercial companies now offering parallel versions of their codes for parallel processors. It is clear that industry is moving to parallel systems and it has shown a keen interest in parallel systems recognizing that parallel computing will play an important role in the future.

Over the years, the meeting sessions involved papers on parallel algorithms, developments in software tools and environments, unstructured mesh applications, combustion, industrial applications, climate modeling, atmospheric and oceanic global simulation, interdisciplinary application, and evaluation of computer architectures ranging from high-end to low-end systems.
