Parallel linear solution of large structures on heterogeneous PC clusters

2006-12-01
In this paper, a parallel solution framework for the linear static analysis of large structures on heterogeneous PC clusters is presented. The framework consists of two main steps; data preparation and parallel solution. The parallel solution is performed by a substructure based method with direct solvers. The aim of the data preparation step is to create the best possible substructures so that the condensation times of substructures are balanced. Examples which illustrate the applicability and the efficiency of this approach are presented. In these examples, an existing PC cluster having eight different computers was utilized. © 2006 Civil-Comp Press.

Linear static analysis of large structural models on pc clusters
Özmen, Semih; Toker, Kurç; Department of Civil Engineering (2009)
This research focuses on implementing and improving a parallel solution framework for the linear static analysis of large structural models on PC clusters. The framework consists of two separate programs where the first one is responsible from preparing data for the parallel solution that involves partitioning, workload balancing, and equation numbering. The second program is a fully parallel nite element program that utilizes substructure based solution approach with direct solvers. The first step of data...
Open problems in CEM
Ergül, Özgür Salih (2013-09-09)
This work provides an overview of a parallel, high-order, error-controllable framework for solving large-scale scattering problems in electromagnetics, as well as open problems pertinent to such solutions. The method is based on the higherorder locally corrected Nystrom (LCN) discretization of the combined-field integral equation (CFIE), accelerated with the error-controlled Multi-Level Fast Multipole Algorithm (MLFMA). Mechanisms for controlling the accuracy of calculations are discussed, including geometr...
Nonlinear analysis of R/C low-rise shear walls
Mansour, Mohamad Y.; Dicleli, Murat; Lee, Jung Yoon (SAGE Publications, 2004-08-01)
An analysis method for predicting the response of low-rise shear walls under both monotonic and cyclic loading is presented in this paper. The proposed analysis method is based on the softened truss model theory but utilizes newly proposed cyclic constitutive relationships for concrete and steel bars obtained from cyclic shear testing. The successfulness of the analysis method, when combined with new materials constitutive relationships, is checked against the test results of 33 low-rise shear walls reporte...
PARALLEL MULTILEVEL FAST MULTIPOLE ALGORITHM FOR COMPLEX PLASMONIC METAMATERIAL STRUCTURES
Ergül, Özgür Salih (2013-11-09)
A parallel implementation of the multilevel fast multipole algorithm (MLFMA) is developed for fast and accurate solutions of electromagnetics problems involving complex plasmonic metamaterial structures. Composite objects that consist of multiple penetrable regions, such as dielectric, lossy, and plasmonic parts, are formulated rigorously with surface integral equations and solved iteratively via MLFMA. Using the hierarchical strategy for the parallelization, the developed implementation is capable of simul...
