Kelvin-Helmholtz Instability in 2D


Numerical Simulation     Initial & Boundary Condition      Benchmarks

Two-dimensional Euler-equations for an ideal gas (Air with   = 1.4)
Wave propagation scheme with Minmod wave-limiter and transverse wave propagation
Calculation of 1066 time steps with CFL-No.  0.95   to   tend = 0.025s.
AMR-computation with a coarse grid of 120 x 120 cells. 2 levels with refinement factor 4 are used. Finest level corresponds to 1920 x 1920 grid (3.7 M cells).
Number of cells increases continuously from 167 k up to 1.1 M.
44.8 h real time on 6 nodes SP2 (nonadaptive  1250 h)

The computations are included in the following paper:

A distributed memory adaptive mesh refinement package for inviscid flow simulations
