Abstract

A new paradigm for computing fluid flows is the use of Graphics Processing Units (GPU), which have recently become very powerful and convenient to use. In the past three years, we have implemented five different fluid flow algorithms on GPUs and have obtained significant speed-ups over a single CPU. Typically, it is possible to achieve a factor of 50-100 over a single CPU. In this review paper, we describe our experiences on the various algorithms developed and the speeds achieved.
