Remarks on the Development of a Multiblock Three-Dimensional Euler Code for out of Core and Multiprocessor Calculations
Our purpose in this paper is to describe some of the problems which were presented by the development of a three-dimensional Euler code with a multiblock grid structure in which only a single block at a time is held in core, and the main data base is out of core. The initial development of the code was motivated by the need to use a much denser mesh than could be accommodated in the then available supercomputers, which had one or two million words of memory, in order to provide adequate resolution of complex three-dimensional flows.
