The Efficient Use of the CRAY X-MP Multiprocessor Vector Computer in Computational Fluid Dynamics
For many problems in computational fluid dynamics the elapsed times for simulations are too large to make the routine use of the technique in research and development pragmatic, even with a vector computer such as the CRAY-1. With the CRAY X-MP series of supercomputers the elapsed time for such jobs may be reduced by more than a factor of seven. In this paper we discuss the factors important to the efficient exploitation of the novel features of these machines.
