    • Abstract


      Tarang is a general-purpose pseudospectral parallel code for simulating flows involving fluids, magnetohydrodynamics, and Rayleigh–Bénard convection in turbulence and instability regimes. In this paper we present code validation and benchmarking results of Tarang. We performed our simulations on $1024^{3}$, $2048^{3}$, and $4096^{3}$ grids using the HPC system of IIT Kanpur and Shaheen of KAUST. We observe good `weak' and `strong' scaling for Tarang on these systems.
