AbstractThe panel method, or the boundary element method, has been widely used for calculating lifting flows in which forces on wing surfaces are primarily of interest. In panel method for a wind generation system with a number of propfans or for an oil platform motion control assembly with a number of thrusters/propellers, calling time for a matrix solver is the key factor for computing efficiency. This paper discusses the code development of an iterative matrix solver in MPI via C and benchmark analysis for a shared and a distributed memory UNIX machine, respectively.
