The paper deals with a parallel algorithm for calculations on multiprocessor computers and GPU accelerators. The calculations of shock waves interaction with low-density bubble results and the problem of the gas flow with the forces of gravity are presented. This algorithm combines a possibility to capture a high resolution of shock waves, the second-order accuracy for TVD schemes, and a possibility to observe a low-level diffusion of the advection scheme. Many complex problems of continuum mechanics are numerically solved on structured or unstructured grids. To improve the accuracy of the calculations is necessary to choose a sufficiently small grid (with a small cell size). This leads to the drawback of a substantial increase of computation time. Therefore, for the calculations of complex problems it is reasonable to use the method of Adaptive Mesh Refinement. That is, the grid refinement is performed only in the areas of interest of the structure, where, e.g., the shock waves are generated, or a complex geometry or other such features exist. Thus, the computing time is greatly reduced. In addition, the execution of the application on the resulting sequence of nested, decreasing nets can be parallelized. Proposed algorithm is based on the AMR method. Utilization of AMR method can significantly improve the resolution of the difference grid in areas of high interest, and from other side to accelerate the processes of the multi-dimensional problems calculating. Parallel algorithms of the analyzed difference models realized for the purpose of calculations on graphic processors using the CUDA technology [1]. © 2013 AIP Publishing LLC.
