Mitchell,
   how about running the NIST Fire Dynamics simulation?
http://www.fire.nist.gov/fds/
It simulates the spread of smoke and fire in buildings.
There are some sample input models for download.

The Smokeview program visualizes the output, which will be a nice 
demonstration for your tutor.


But why not just go across to the Oxford E-science centre?
I know for sure they have one cluster there for handling large datasets!
Ask them for help in getting a suitable dataset for your project.

Drop me an email if I can give you any advice, you're in my neck of the 
woods.
