Parallel Solution Of Implicit Numerical Scheme For Open Channel Flow Equations

Authors:

Abstract

Open channel flow equations are solved by implicit numerical scheme. Implicit numerical scheme requires considerable computational effort consequent upon the need to solve block tridiagonal system of equations per each time step, and thus parallel solution is employed. Research on different linear solvers has become increasingly complex, and this trend is likely to accentuate because of the growing need to design efficient sparse matrix algorithms for modern parallel computers.
