The serial version of the CABARET code emerged as the result of more than 12 years work of Dr Karabasov and his collaborators within the group of Prof. Goloviznin of the Russian Academy of Science, Moscow. This code has been used extensively for grids involving up to 105 points for both compressible and incompressible flows, however current state of the art high fidelity MILES simulations require millions of grid points. This could be achieved with a new version of the code, re-designed for distributed processing. CABARET is particularly suited to this approach since the computational stencil only requires information from the first layer of nearest neighbour cells.
