The Flosolver MklB has two nodes, each having four processing elements based on intel's 8086/8087 chips. In each node one of the processor acts as the host. The internade communication is done through the parallel ports available on the hosts. Within a node the cynchronisation and inter processor communication is done through the global memory. As a sample case the flow part NACA 0012 aerofoil at zero incident using transonic small perturbation equation is computed and an efficiency of 90 percent is obtained.
