Abstract

An algorithm for the parallel computing of the boundary-element and finite- element combination method is presented in this paper. By introducing domain decomposition of an entire domain into the boundary-element and finite-element subdomains, each analysis is performed independently and in parallel. Renewal iterative scheme for the parallel computing is the Schwarz method which was adopted to the domain decomposition parallel scheme in the boundary-element analysis. A cluster parallel computing system by workstations connected by LAN is constructed and employed aiming at efficient analysis. Convergence and accuracy of solutions on internal virtual boundaries are shown through some numerical examples Introduction The boundary-element and finite-element co
