Abstract:

Parallel computing is nowadays considered a very efficient tool to overcome bottlenecks of traditional serial computing. Typical parallel application decreases the demands on memory and other resources by spreading the task over several mutually interconnected computers and speeds up the response of the application by distribution of the computation over individual processors. This paper compares performance of a parallel 3D mesh generator on two different parallel hardware platforms.
