Parallel Fluid Dynamics Computations of Incompressible and Compressible Flow

Northern New Mexico College (NNMC) was granted a research plan that allowed three undergraduate students in the Engineering Department to participate in parallel computational fluid dynamics research. The performed research had two components: an introductory curriculum based on incompressible fluid dynamics and an advanced curriculum based on compressible fluid dynamics.

In this research, students successfully implemented their computational fluid dynamics codes in parallel. Below is some of their generated results.
