The grid cycle of the dam-break model is the main part for parallel computation. The $OMP DO directive is used before the grid loop to dispatch all grid computing tasks to different threads in order to maximize the acceleration effect of the model.
Reduction is a parallel approach to compute the sum and can take further advantage of the power of parallel computation.
For the solution, we tried to speedup this simulator by adapting parallel computation approach using GPGPU technology.

In this section we present a detailed process for pC-PIC algorithm using MapReduce based on similarity measures and matrix vector multiplication, since MapReduce is an easier parallel computation framework that takes care of node failure by its replication process.
We model parallel computation as a fully connected network of p homogeneous processors that perform local computations and exchange point-to-point messages.
It explains that with the sequence length increasing, CPU serial computation time cost grows fast; GPU parallel computation time cost grows relatively slow.
Originally designed for accelerating the computer graphics computation, the graphics processing unit (GPU) has emerged as a versatile platform for running massively parallel computation [18-21].
This enables us to perform a parallel computation with message passing interface (MPI) and reduce the computational burden significantly.
Then some parallel computation methods are applied to speed up the computation of PageRank by using a partition of the nodes.
However more developers are using commercial software tools having parallel computation capabilities [10].
