The general-purpose finite element system PERMAS has been ported to parallel computer architectures within the scope of the ESPRIT project EUROPORT-1. The kernel of this 1 M lines of code has been restructured in such a way that parallelism is automatically identified and exploited at runtime. This paper describes the general structure of the approach and(More)
The simulated models and requirements of engineering programs like computational fluids dynamics and structural mechanics grow more rapidly than single processor performance. Automatic parallelisation seem to be the obvious approach for huge and historic packages like PERMAS. In this paper we evaluate how preparatory steps on the big input matrices can(More)
