Scalable parallel algorithm for particle transport is one of the main application fields in high-performance computing. Discrete ordinate method (Sn) is one of the most popular deterministic numerical methods for solving particle transport equations. In this paper, we introduce a new method of large-scale heterogeneous computing of one energy group time-independent deterministic discrete ordinates neutron transport in 3D Cartesian geometry (Sweep3D) on Tianhe-2A supercomputer. In heterogeneous programming, we use customized Basic Communication Library (BCL) and Accelerated Computing Library (ACL) to control and communicate between CPU and the Matrix2000 accelerator. We use OpenMP instructions to exploit the parallelism of threads based on Matrix 2000. The test results show that the optimization of applying OpenMP on particle transport algorithm modified by our method can get 11.3 times acceleration at most. On Tianhe-2A supercomputer, the parallel efficiency of 1.01 million cores compared with 170 thousand cores is 52%.
