Building a GPU architecture for CFD
Hi all,

I would like to ask for directions on how to build a GPU architecture for CFD simulations. Let's look at it as a client/consultant problem.

I'm the client and I'm asking for:

(1) What hardware is there available? (I've read about CUDA fom nVIDIA)
(2) What software to manage the parallel jobs? (I guess I'm asking for something like Metis-MPI)
(3) Which solvers are mature enough to handle this technology? (ANSYS FLUENT/CFD, OpenFOAM, NUMECA, ...)
(4) Could you explain what steps to follow to have a GPU system working for CFD?
