First and foremost, the geometry and problem files are taken from StarCD files previously written with sequential StarCD.

Do not forget to specify the maximum number of iterations for the parallel computation... In the Navigation Center, click folder "Analysis Preparation/Running" and then "Set Run Time Controls" to display the corresponding panel. Type the maximum number of iteration you wish and then click "Apply".

In the prostar GUI, click on :

The following panel will appear :
- Choose the STAR-HPC option in the third box under the file name

- Type the number of processors you want to use for calculations in the box "No. of Processors"

- Click on "Apply"

Now the geometry and problem files are correctly saved. The calculation can be made with parallel StarCD ...
