Abstract : The purpose of this work is to study the solution of a 2-D compressible viscous fluid flow in a nozzle on a Hypercube. The analysis of the physical problem on a serial computer and an outline of its parallelization on the hypercube were previously detailed. This paper will detail all the steps of the parallelization and our results: speedups, efficiencies and communication time versus arithmetic time. Keywords: Two dimensional flow, Viscous flow, Nozzle flow, Compressible flow.
