Title The design of a portable parallel frontal solver for chemical process engineering problems
Abstract We report on the design and development of a parallel frontal code for the numerical solution of the large sparse highly unsymmetric linear systems of equations that arise in industrial-scale chemical process engineering. The code has been developed as routine HSL MP43 for the mathematical software library HSL 2000 (http://www.cse.clrc.ac.uk/Activity/HSL). The main design goals for HSL MP43 were: portability, ease of use, efficiency, and flexibility. We discuss how each of these objectives are addressed within HSL MP43 and illustrate the performance of the code using a range of large-scale problems from chemical process simulation and optimization.
