Short summary
A new framework was designed for the widely used Carbon Bond Mechanism Z (CBM-Z) gas-phase chemical kinetics kernel to adapt the single-instruction, multiple-data (SIMD) technology in next-generation processors like Knights Landing (KNL) to improve their calculation performance. The optimization is aimed at implementing the fine-grain level parallelization of CBM-Z. The test results showed significant acceleration with our optimization on both CPU and KNL platforms.
