The main activities in the reporting period have been:
- to prepare an initial working implementation of
the electromagnetics application code on the
target architectures which will form the basis for later parallel
It has been agreed that the first step in the
production of the EM application will be an optical ray tracing of
the BAe model data using bi-cubic patches. Model data has been
supplied by BAe and the development of serial ray tracing software
(based on existing code) is in progress.
- to produce a parallel implementation of the EM
application code that
incorporates a parallel ray-tracing set of routines managed by a dynamic load
balancer. The load-balancer will be included as a support routine
in the PINEAPL Library.
Development of the sequential ray-tracer and its integration with the BAe EM
applications is continuing and a beta test version was delivered to BAe
by the University of Manchester.
