Abstract
We describe our parallelization of an unconditionally stable solution scheme of the Navier-Stokes equation that has recentlybeen used for animation purposes. Our parallelization gives good speed-ups on current multi-processor workstations. These speed-ups close the gap that existed towards real time animation for several 3D-examples. In addition to parallelizing the solver software the integration of a fast 3D-volume renderer into the parallel framework has been an important step to achieve this goal. Our parallelization is portable on workstations and PC s running under the UNIX or the WIN32 operating systems.
