This paper discusses parallel computing applied to computational aeroacoustics problems. Computer hardware, software and algorithms are also described. A short history of parallel computers is given, along with some discussion of future prospects. We have reviewed much of the literature, but this review is not exhaustive. Finite difference, finite volume, and finite element methods are briefly discussed. There is also a discussion of how aeroacoustic problems scale, and how that relates to computational requirements.
