Cooperation with DLR Köln.
This project seeks to develop a parallel grid generator and to assemble a uniform, parallel environment - an integrated process of development - for the construction of computational grids (meshes), for the partitioning of meshes, and for the computations of simulations. Currently, the grids are sequentially constructed and are simply partitioned for the parallel flow solver. The quality of the meshes are evaluated automatically by geometry criterions and by hand inspection. The use of very large data sets needs a more practicable and automatic method. The parallel grid generation combined with the flow solver makes it possible to shorten the development cycles, to operate on a larger dataset and to extend methods for controlling grid quality.
In a first step, a geometry partitioning will be developed. This will serve as a basis for the parallel grid point generating. In a second step, the flow solver will be integrated. All aspects of load balancing will be handled here by the geometry partitioning. The parallel grid generator for two and three dimensional problems will be tested and verified on stator-rotor examples.
