Parallel finite element algorithm based on full domain partition for stationary Stokes equations
- 47 Downloads
Based on the full domain partition, a parallel finite element algorithm for the stationary Stokes equations is proposed and analyzed. In this algorithm, each subproblem is defined in the entire domain. Majority of the degrees of freedom are associated with the relevant subdomain. Therefore, it can be solved in parallel with other subproblems using an existing sequential solver without extensive recoding. This allows the algorithm to be implemented easily with low communication costs. Numerical results are given showing the high efficiency of the parallel algorithm.
