A parallel algorithm is developed for use with an ablation prediction code. The use of parallel computing is required due to the amount of computational time needed to simulate realistic physical times due to the small time steps demanded by explicit time schemes, and for the future use of the code to handle 3-D defects at the TPS surface. The details of a parallel algorithm using MPI are provided. The performance of this algorithm for a typical ablation problem is provided.
