Parallel Algorithms for Calculating Underground Water Quality

The PVM system helps us in designing parallel processing programs for multi-computer systems. The implementation of the parallel algorithm enables the solving of large mechanic problems requiring large amounts of computer time and memory.

Figure 3. Xndd program

We designed and built the X Window System program Xndd under Linux. This program can be used for simulating the surface of underground water and the transfer and diffusion of pollution. The interface of the program and some calculation results are shown in Figure 3.
