Software Engineering principles are used for the parallelization of one sequential CFD code in order to reduce the required time expense and effort. The obtained experience can be useful for an applied scientist, who wants to use the largest computers, and it also shows where Software Engineering methods should be improved and further developed to fit the needs of parallel programming. Finally, we show an opportunity where Software Engineering probably can provide a helpful tool for today's applied science.
