bennyWe have implemented a fluid flow simulation using the smoothed particle hydrodynamics method. The implementation runs in parallel on distributed memory machines using the MPI message passing libraries. Shown in the image is a color contour plot of the velocity field for flow in a channel around an object (the Beaver).
