Abstract

The study deals with the parallelization of 2D and 3D finite element based Navier-Stokes codes using direct solvers. Development of sparse direct solvers using multifrontal solvers has significantly reduced the computational time of direct solution methods. Although limited by its stringent memory requirements, multifrontal solvers can be computationally efficient. First the performance of MUltifrontal Massively Parallel Solver (MUMPS) is evaluated for both 2D and 3D codes in terms of memory requirements and CPU times. The scalability of both Newton and modified Newton algorithms is tested.
