Abstract

Parallel programming and parallel execution of a new formulation for the finite element analysis of box girder bridges E. Moreno", A. Fafitis\ A. FaustinP "9029 W. Windsor, Phoenix AZ85037, USA ''Civil Engineering Department, Arizona State University, TempeAZ 85287, USA ^Computer Science Department, Arizona State University, TempeAZ85287, USA ABSTRACT This paper addresses the results of a researeh on a Finite Element Parallel Formulation for the Structural Analysis of Thin-walled Box Girder Bridges and its implementation in the GLU Programming Environment. This new formulation whieh is based on plane stress quadrilateral quadratic elements has demonstrated that it is well suited to Coarse-grain Parallel processing. 1 INTRODUCTION The analysis of the majority of structural engineering systems tends to be inherently complex in nature. As a result, a true structure is generally replaced by an idealized approximation suitable for mathematical analysis. Establis
