Abstract

Distributed memory systems have gained immense popularity due to their favorable price/performance ratios. This study seeks to reduce the complexities, involved in developing parallel applications for distributed memory systems. The Loci system is a coordination framework which was developed to eliminate most of the accidental complexities involved in numerical simulation software development. A distributed memory version of Loci is developed and has been tested and validated using a finite-rate chemically reacting flow solver developed in the sequential Loci framework. The application developed in the original sequential version of Loci was parallelized with minimal changes in its source code. A comparison with the results from the original sequential version guarantees a correct implementation. The performance measurements indicate that an efficient implementation has been achieved.
