Abstract : An efficient unstructured 3D Euler solver is parallelized on a Thinking Machine Corporation Connection Machine 5 distributed memory computer with vectorizing capability. In this paper the SIMD strategy is employed through the use of the CM Fortran language and the CMSSL scientific library. The performance of the CMSSL mesh partitioner is evaluated and the overall efficiency of the parallel flow solver is discussed. (AN)
