Overview of the solver

Equations, properties, methods, etc.:

Using the simulation code:

  • Getting started - overview of files, setup, starting and ending a job.
  • Tutorial - setup a job, basic monitoring and visualisation of outputs.
  • Core implementation - Discretisation, PPE formulation, Predictor-Corrector, Code Structure.
  • Parallel i/o - a brief note on parallel data access.
  • Utilities - pre/post-processing, runtime processing and manipulations, Newton solver for pipe flow.

Non-problem specific codes

  • These are designed for integration with any pre-existing code.
  • File:Arnoldi.f - Krylov-subspace method for calculating eigenvalues of a matrix.
  • File:GMRESm.f90 - Krylov-subspace method for solving the linear system Ax=b for x.
  • File:NewtonHook.f90 - Newton-Krylov-Hookstep method for finding nonlinear solutions x of F(x)=0.
