    Implementation of a Parallel Dual Reciprocity Boundary Element Method for the Solution of Coupled Thermoelasticity and Thermoviscoelasticity Problems

    M. Koyuncu1, F. Y. Ikikat1, G. C. Icoz2, B. Baranoglu3, A. Yazici2

    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.84, No.1, pp. 13-26, 2012, DOI:10.3970/cmes.2012.084.013

    Abstract A parallel dual reciprocity boundary element method solution to thermoelasticity and thermoviscoelasticity problems is proposed. The DR-BEM formulation is given in Fourier Transform Space where the Time Space solutions are obtained through inverse Fourier Transform. The parallellization of the code is achieved through solving each frequency at a distinct computational node. The implemented parallel code is tested on 64-core IBM blade servers and it is seen that a linear speed-up is achieved. More >

    Parallel Node-based Local Tetrahedral Mesh Generation

    Y.F. Nie, Y.Q. Li, L. Wang

    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.83, No.6, pp. 575-598, 2012, DOI:10.3970/cmes.2012.083.575

    Abstract In this paper, we introduce the parallel Node-based Local FEM (NLFEM)-a novel version of FEM with natural parallel performances and adaptivity to various complex parallel environments. As a crucial part of 3D NLFEM, the Node-based Local Tetrahedron Mesh Generation (NLTMG) algorithm is presented, where guaranteeing the global conformity of local meshes is a strategy of ensuring the validity of the NLFEM and decoupling the NLFEM. In order to generate conforming local mesh, we search the neighbor nodes by the neighborhood of a corresponding multilevel bucket and then those nodes are Delaunay tetrahedralized by the TetGen.

    Finite Element Approximate Inverse Preconditioning for solving 3D Biharmonic Problems on Shared Memory Systems

    G.A. Gravvanis1, K.M. Giannoutakis2

    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.71, No.4, pp. 305-330, 2011, DOI:10.3970/cmes.2011.071.305

    Abstract In this paper we present parallel explicit approximate inverse matrix techniques for solving sparse linear systems on shared memory systems, which are derived using the finite element method for biharmonic equations in three space variables. Our approach for solving such equations is by considering the biharmonic equation as a coupled equation approach (pair of Poisson equation), using a FE approximation scheme, yielding an inner-outer iteration method. Additionally, parallel approximate inverse matrix algorithms are introduced for the efficient solution of sparse linear systems, based on an anti-diagonal computational approach that eliminates the data dependencies.

    Jong Keun Moon1, Seung Jo Kim2

    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.67, No.3, pp. 239-264, 2010, DOI:10.3970/cmes.2010.067.239

    Abstract Large structural problems with high precision and complexity require a high-performance computation using the efficient parallel algorithm. The purpose of this paper is to present the parallel performance of thermal-structural coupled analysis tested on a parallel cluster system. In the coupled analysis, the heat transfer analysis is carried out, and then the structural analysis is performed based on temperature distribution. For the automatic and efficient connection of two parallel analysis modules, the several communication patterns were studied. The parallel performance was demonstrated for the sample and the real application problems, such as a laminated composite More >

    High Velocity Impact Simulation of Brittle Materials with Node Separation Scheme in Parallel Computing Environment

    Ji Joong Moon1, Seung Jo Kim1, Minhyung Lee2

    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.59, No.3, pp. 275-300, 2010, DOI:10.3970/cmes.2010.059.275

    Abstract This paper describes the parallelization of contact/impact simulation for fracture modeling of brittle materials using a node separation scheme (NSS). We successfully demonstrated the fracture modeling of brittle materials using a cohesive fracture model. Since a NSS continuously generates new free surfaces as the computation progresses, the methodology requires increased computational time. To perform a simulation within a reasonable time period, a parallelization study is conducted. Particular methods for effective parallelization, especially for brittle materials, are described in detail. The crucial and most difficult strategy is the management of the data structure and communication needed More >

    A Relocalization Technique for the Multiscale Computation of Delamination in Composite Structures

    O. Allix1, P. Kerfriden1, P. Gosselet1

    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.55, No.3, pp. 271-292, 2010, DOI:10.3970/cmes.2010.055.271

    Abstract We present numerical enhancements of a multiscale domain decomposition strategy based on a LaTIn solver and dedicated to the computation of the debounding in laminated composites. We show that the classical scale separation is irrelevant in the process zones, which results in a drop in the convergence rate of the strategy. We show that performing nonlinear subresolutions in the vicinity of the front of the crack at each prediction stage of the iterative solver permits to restore the effectiveness of the method. More >

    Node Placement Method by Bubble Simulation and Its Application

    Ying Liu1, Yufeng Nie2, Weiwei Zhang2, Lei Wang2

    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.55, No.1, pp. 89-110, 2010, DOI:10.3970/cmes.2010.055.089

    Abstract In the light of the ideas and treatment technologies about molecular dynamics simulation and bubble meshing, a new approach of node placement for the meshless method called node placement method by bubble simulation (NPBS method), is proposed. Nodes are seen as the centers of the bubbles which can be moved by their interacting forces. Through dynamic simulation, bubbles are placed into a near-optimal configuration, and the centers of bubbles will form a good-quality node distribution in the domain. This process doesn't need updating the mesh connection constantly, i.e., is totally meshfree. Some example results show… More >

    Solution Methods for Nonsymmetric Linear Systems with Large off-Diagonal Elements and Discontinuous Coefficients

    Dan Gordon1, Rachel Gordon2

    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.53, No.1, pp. 23-46, 2009, DOI:10.3970/cmes.2009.053.023

    Abstract Linear systems with very large off-diagonal elements and discontinuous coefficients (LODC systems) arise in some modeling cases, such as those involving heterogeneous media. Such problems are usually solved by domain decomposition methods, but these can be difficult to implement on unstructured grids or when the boundaries between subdomains have a complicated geometry. Gordon and Gordon have shown that Björck and Elfving's (sequential) CGMN algorithm and their own block-parallel CARP-CG are very robust and efficient on strongly convection dominated cases (but without discontinuous coefficients). They have also shown that scaling the equations by dividing each equation… More >

    Cell Cycle Modeling for Budding Yeast with Stochastic Simulation Algorithms

    Tae-Hyuk Ahn1, Layne T. Watson1,2, Yang Cao1,1, Clifford A. Shaffer1, William T. Baumann3

    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.51, No.1, pp. 27-52, 2009, DOI:10.3970/cmes.2009.051.027

    Abstract For biochemical systems, where some chemical species are represented by small numbers of molecules, discrete and stochastic approaches are more appropriate than continuous and deterministic approaches. The continuous deterministic approach using ordinary differential equations is adequate for understanding the average behavior of cells, while the discrete stochastic approach accurately captures noisy events in the growth-division cycle. Since the emergence of the stochastic simulation algorithm (SSA) by Gillespie, alternative algorithms have been developed whose goal is to improve the computational efficiency of the SSA. This paper explains and empirically compares the performance of some of these More >

    An Efficient Parallel MLPG Method for Poroelastic Models

    Luca Bergamaschi1,2, ,Ángeles Martínez2, Giorgio Pini2

    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.49, No.3, pp. 191-216, 2009, DOI:10.3970/cmes.2009.049.191

    Abstract A meshless model, based on the Meshless Local Petrov-Galerkin (MLPG) approach, is developed and implemented in parallel for the solution of axi-symmetric poroelastic problems. The parallel code is based on a concurrent construction of the stiffness matrix by the processors and on a parallel preconditioned iterative method of Krylov type for the solution of the resulting linear system. The performance of the code is investigated on a realistic application concerning the prediction of land subsidence above a deep compacting reservoir. The overall code is shown to obtain a very high parallel efficiency (larger than 78% More >
