Parallel Programming Workshop

Abstract
The aim of these workshops is to give people who already have some programming experience an introduction into the numerics of linear solvers, computational fluid dynamics, and the basics of parallel programming. The focus is on iterative solvers, the programming models MPI and OpenMP, domain decomposition, load balancing and parallel numerics. Language support is given for Fortran, C and C++.
Message Passing with MPI is the major programming model on large distributed-memory systems in high-performance computing. OpenMP is dedicated to shared memory systems.
Hands-on sessions will allow users to immediately test linear solver programming and to understand what the basic constructs of MPI and OpenMP are meant to do.

Content Introduction to Computational Fluids Dynamics
Abstract The course deals with current numerical methods for Computational Fluid Dynamics. The emphasis is placed on explicit finite volume methods for the compressible Euler equations. Moreover outlooks on implicit methods, the extension to the Navier-Stokes equations and turbulence modelling are given. Additional topics are classical numerical methods for the solution of the incompressible Navier-Stokes equations, Aeracoustics and high order numerical methods for the solution of systems of partial differential equations. The last day is dedicated to parallelization of explicit and implicit solvers.
Hands-on sessions will manifest the contents of the lectures. The emphasis of these session is put on the application of CFD codes, especially on grid generation, visualization and the interpretation of results. Furthermore the implementation of algorithms presented in the lectures points up the general structure of CFD codes.
The course is organized by the HLRS, the IAG and the University of Kassel. It is based on the course "Numerical Gasdynamics" held at the IAG which has been awarded the "Landeslehrpreis (prize for excellence in teaching) Baden-Württemberg 2003" (held at Uni. Stuttgart, under auspices of the BMBF project NUSS, contract 08NM227).
