The TeraGrid's collective computing resources can help researchers perform very-large-scale simulations in computational fluid dynamics (CFD) applications, but doing so requires tightly coupled communications among different sites. The authors examine a scaled-down turbulent flow problem, investigating the feasibility and scalability of cross-site simulation paradigms, targeting grand challenges such as blood flow in the entire human arterial tree.
