FASTEST-3D is an MPI-parallel finite-volume flow solver based on block-structured meshes that has been developed at the University of Erlangen-Nuremberg since the early 1990s. It can be used to solve the laminar or turbulent incompressible Navier-Stokes equations. Up to now its scalability was strongly limited by a rather rigid communication infrastructure, which led to a dominance of MPI time already at small process counts. This paper describes several optimizations to increase the… Expand
