This paper describes a method for solving the three-dimensional Suler and Navier-Stokes equations using the massively parallel Connection Machine computer. The program uses a finite-volume, Runge-Kutta time-marching scheme and can accept structured or unstructured grids. The computer program is written entirely in *LXSP, Significant computational speed-ups were obtained over similar codes developed for vector supercomputers.
