Title: Parallel Computation for Natural Convection in Cavities

Abstract: Parallel computation for thermal convective flows in cavities with adiabatic horizontal boundaries and driven by differential heating of the two vertical end walls, is investigated using supercomputers. A parallel computation code has been implemented using a finite-difference method with a multigrid elliptic solver and a Dufort-Frankel scheme. The domain decomposition techniques are discussed in detail. The parallel code is numerically stable, computationally efficient, and portable to various parallel architectures which support either PVM or NX libraries for communications. Finally, numerical results for various Rayleigh numbers and Prandtl numbers are presented.
