Abstract

A simple parallelization approach using General Purpose computation on Graphics Processing Unit was applied for solving the MHD equations using the CIP-MOCCT method. We investigated the efficiency of this parallelization approach and found that the computational speed of the modified code is significantly improved despite the simple modification.
