The performance of unstructured grid codes on workstations and distributed memory parallel computers is substantially affected by the efficiency of the memory hierarchy. This efficiency essentially depends on the order of computation and numbering of the grid. Most grid generators do not take into account the effect of the memory hierarchy when producing grids so application programmers must renumber grids to improve the performance of their codes. To design a good renumbering scheme a detailed… CONTINUE READING
