Open Problems in Computational Steering of Massive Parallel Unstructured Grid Based CFD Simulations

Christian Wagner
Traditionally, analysis of flow fields resulting from computational fluid dynamics (CFD) calculations is a sequential process. The flow area defined by surrounding geometry is tessellated, a mesh is generated and divided into subregions, transferred to a cluster or supercomputer and the result is transferred back. Then, a variety of post-processing tasks should give insights to the physical problem. At that point, parameters chosen wrong can be identified and the simulation has to be done again...
