The development and evaluation of quantum computing algorithms for computational fluid dynamics is described along with a detailed analysis of the parallel performance of a quantum computer simulator developed as part of the present work. The quantum computer simulator is used in the evaluation of the quantum algorithms on a conventional parallel computer, and is applied to quantum lattice-based algorithms as well as the Poisson equation. A key result is a demonstration of how the Poisson equation can be solved effeciently on a quantum computer, while its use within a larger algorithm representing a full CFD solver poses a number of signifi- cant challenges.
