Abstract

Three iterative schemes of the domain decomposition algorithm for parallel computing to boundary element analysis in potential problems were applied previously. The purpose of this paper is comparison and evaluation of efficiency of the scheme under network cluster system of workstations, for different conditions of number of boundary elements and load balance/ unbalance in each domain. High computational efficiency is shown through some example computations. Key Words: Boundary Element Method, Parallel Computing, Cluster Computing, Domain Decomposition Method, Workstations, Potential Problem INTRODUCTION In the paper [1], the authors applied three different iterative schemes for the parallel computing to the domain decomposition boundary element analysis and compared thei
