This paper reports research in progress. Two types of domain decomposition have been used in distributed computing with networked workstations for the numerical modeling of full-scale utility boilers. The numerical model is a three-dimensional combustion code which couples turbulent computational fluid dynamics with the chemical reaction process and the radiative heat transfer. Two approaches, here called microscale parallelism and macroscale parallelism, are proposed to study the intrinsic parallelism of typical combustion simulations. We describe the implementation of the microscale parallelism as well as its performance on networked workstations.
