Title Homogeneous workstation clustersfor parallel CFD
Abstract A typical CFD application has been implemented on clusters of identical workstations connected by various local area networks, such as Ethernet, FDDI, Ultranet and SOCC. Performance measurements were made of the code and results on workstation clusters were compared to similar results from loosely coupled multi-processor systems communicating via shared memory. The programming methodology is briefly described, followed by measured system performance parameters and a discussion of the results. It is shown that performance can be predicted even without exclusive access to the processors and network. Some recommendations are made for those considering purchase of workstation clusters.
