Abstract—The paper shares the experience of executing enormous computations by Large Eddy Simulation (LES) for environmental studies, using the commercial Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) code FLUENT 6.3® on an Intel Xeon® quad-core workstation and Intel Core® dual-core PC. The computational performancein terms of iteration resource and time expenditure for both single and parallel processingare assessed, with the later proving more efficient for large computational domainswhich arenecessary for simulations where both external and internal fluctuations dominate such in the case of flow and pollutant dispersion within urban street canyons.
