|Title:||Parallel Finite Element Method with FEAP 8.2|
The present Bachelor Thesis deals with the parallelised version of the Finite Element (FE) software tool FEAP. The first part represents an introduction to the theoretical background of the underlying continuum mechanics equations, the Finite Element Method, the solving of the emerging linear systems of equations and the basics of parallelisation. The following chapters describe several aspects of the software packages itself. This includes the required software installation steps in two different environments (Linux and the UNIX derivate IBM AIX) and the validation of the obtained results. In contrast, the second part focuses on the productive application of FEAP. The corresponding topics cover the development of software tools for a convenient handling in common situations and the examination of the actual speed-up for a practical example with different solving algorithms. Finally, the work is concluded by an evaluation of the obtained results and a brief discussion of suitable fields of application.
