Parallel simulation of turbulent flow in a 3-D lid-driven cavity

Abstract

In this paper we present, a new version of the standard CFD benchmark lid-driven cavity problem in which now all six sides of the 3-D cavity are in motion to promote more efficient mixing. We solve this problem with a, new form of large-eddy simulation at moderate Reynolds number to demonstrate the ability of this procedure to automatically predict transition to turbulence. We report parallel speedups observed on a general-purpose symmetric multiprocessor employing MPI for parallelization.
