Abstract
THE OBJECTIVE OF THIS PROPOSED INVESTIGATION IS TO ADDRESS SOFTWARE ARCHITECTURAL ISSUES WHICH WILL FACILITATE THE IMPLEMENTATION OF ADVANCED FINITE ELEMENT TECHNOLOGY (E.G. HP-VERSION) FOR PARALLEL AND DISTRIBUTED COMPUTATIONALPROCESSING SYSTEMS AND TO PRODUCE A PROTOTYPE SOFTWARE SYSTEM FOR USE IN DEMONSTRATING AND BENCHMARKING THE TECHNIQUES INVESTIGATED. THE SOFTWARE ARCHITECTURE TO BE DEVELOPED WILL PERMIT AN EVALUATION OF THE APPLICABILITY AND FEASIBILITY OF A VARIETY OF CONCEPTS RELATED TO FINITE ELEMENT METHODS FOR SOLID MECHANICS ANALYSIS WHICH HAVE SHOWN PROMISE AS A RESULT OF RECENT RESEARCH IN ENGINEERING, MATHEMATICS, AND COMPUTER SCIENCE INCLUDING:HP-VERSION F.E. MEHTODS, ADAPTIVEMESHING USING NON-CONFORMING ELEMENTS, SOLUTION OF SYSTEMS OF SIMULTANEOUS PARTIAL DIFFERENTIAL EQUATIONS FOR MEDIUM-GRAINED DISTRIBUTED MEMORY PARALLEL PROCESSING SYSTEMS. A PROTOTYPE IMPLEMENTATION WILL UTILIZE OBJECT-ORIENTED SOFTWARE DESIGN AND PROGRAMMING METHODS AND NETWORK AND PARALLEL COMPUTING METHODS TO DEMONSTRATE ADAPTIVE HP-VERSION FINITE ELEMENT TECHNOLOGY FOR THE SOLUTION OF 3 DIMENSIONAL LINEAR STATIC ELASTIC PROBLEMS. TECHNIQUES INVESTIGATED WILL LEAD TO THE DEVELOPMENT OF NEW TOOLS CAPABLE OF SOLVING MORE CHALLENGING NON-LINEAR PROBLEMS. THESE TOOLS ARE IMPORTANT TO THE NATION'S ABILITYTO DESIGN AND PRODUCE SAFE, RELIABLE, AND COST-COMPETITIVE PRODUCTS.
