Solving Kinetic Equations on GPUs I: Model Kinetic Equations
We present an algorithm specifically tailored for solving kinetic equations onto
GPUs. The efficiency of the algorithm is demonstrated by solving the one-dimensional
shock wave structure problem and a two-dimensional low Mach number driven cavity
flow. Computational results show that it is possible to cut down the computing
time of the sequential codes of two order of magnitudes. The algorithm can easily
be extended to three-dimensional flows and more general collision models.
