Gregor Schwarz: A Flexible Cartesian Grid Data Structure for Coupled Simulations
In computational fluid dynamics it is sometimes beneficial to couple different solvers within the same simulation. In this bachelor's thesis a parallel data structure based on Cartesian grids is developed that allows such a coupling. The focus of the data structure lies on its flexibility: the solvers can operate on different resolved Cartesian grids that are positioned arbitrarily in the computational domain and are scattered on different processors. In addition to that, solvers are allowed to have an arbitrary cell format. Due to the flexibility of the developed Cartesian grid data structure, the coupling of different solvers can be performed easily without the need for major adaptions to the code.
