Numerical simulation programs using the lattice Boltzmann equation are limited in the range of problems they can address by memory requirements. We describe an implementation scheme that can reduce memory usage by up to 78%. The performance of both the simple and the memory-reduced implementation are compared. Memory access is the determining factor in the speed of execution of memory intensive applications. We therefore look at the cache memory utilization in both the storage reduced version… CONTINUE READING
