The finite element method (FEM) has been widely used for the structural modeling of physical systems. Due to computation-intensiveness and computation-locality, it is attractive to implement the finite element method on distributed memory multicomputers. Many research efforts have already provided solid algorithms for mesh partitioning and load balancing. However, without proper support, mesh partitioning and load balancing are labor intensive and tedious. In this paper, we present an… CONTINUE READING
