The study deals with the parallelization of finite element based Navier-Stokes codes using domain decomposition and state-of-art sparse direct solvers. There has been significant improvement in the performance of sparse direct solvers. Parallel sparse direct solvers are not found to exhibit good scalability. Hence, the parallelization of sparse direct(More)
The study deals with the parallelization of 2D and 3D finite element based Navier-Stokes codes using direct solvers. Development of sparse direct solvers using multifrontal solvers has significantly reduced the computational time of direct solution methods. Although limited by its stringent memory requirements, multifrontal solvers can be computationally(More)
Vertical profiles of black carbon (BC) aerosol were determined from aircraft measurements under the Cloud Aerosol Interaction and Precipitation Enhancement Experiment (CAIPEEX) program conducted by the Indian Institute of Tropical Meteorology, India during 2009 over Bangalore and Hyderabad in south India. BC mass loadings decreased approximately(More)
A case of acute segmental inflammation of the terminal ileum in a female patient, who presented with signs and symptoms of acute appendicitis is reported. She had an associated bilateral pulmonary tuberculosis. The role of Mycobacterium tuberculosis in the etiology of the segmental ileal disease, and the relationship of the acute disease of the ileum to(More)
First ever 3-day aircraft observations of vertical profiles of Black Carbon (BC) were obtained during the Cloud Aerosol Interaction and Precipitation Enhancement Experiment (CAIPEEX) conducted on 30(th) August, 4(th) and 6(th) September 2009 over Guwahati (26° 11'N, 91° 44'E), the largest metropolitan city in the Brahmaputra River Valley (BRV) region. The(More)
1. BACKGROUND The road sector is a dominant mode of transport in India. The vast road networks exceed 3.3 million kilometers, including about 65,569 km of National Highways, 1,31,899 km of State Highways and 4,70,000 km Major District Roads and other roads, indicative of the diversity and sizes. The country is experiencing rapid growth in motorized vehicles(More)
