  • A non-overlapping domain decomposition method (DDM) is proposed herein to solve Maxwell equations in R{sup 3}. In this work, the Maxwell equations are discretized using a vector finite element method with hierarchical H(curl) vector basis functions. There are two major ingredients in the proposed non-overlapping DDM: (a) A proper 1st order transmission condition to enforce field continuity across domain boundaries and (b) A cement technique to allow non-matching grids for neighboring domains. Moreover, a detail Fourier analysis of the transmission condition for a canonical half-space example is presented. The analysis provides significant insights into the convergence behavior of the proposedmore » non-overlapping DDM for solving electromagnetic radiation problems, such as the large finite antenna arrays. Particularly for the antenna arrays, the proposed non-overlapping DDM is extremely efficient since the formulation can easily incorporate geometrical repetitions. Exponentially tapered notch (Vivaldi) antenna arrays with size up to 100x100 elements are solved on a common PC to validate the proposed non-overlapping DDM.« less
  • The neutron diffusion equation in reactor physics is solved on a multiple-instruction, multiple-data parallel computer network composed of five transputers. A parallel variant of the Schwarz alternating procedure for overlapping subdomains is used for domain decomposition. The parallel Schwartz algorithm with the concept of underrelaxation in pseudo-boundary conditions is applied to two types of reactor benchmark problems: fixed-source problems and eigenvalue problems. Results of parallel computation for these problems are reported and compared with results of sequential computation. The results show that a very high speedup can be achieved in fixed-source problems in spite of the small problem size andmore » that a relatively high speedup, although lower than that of fixed-source problems, can be obtained in eigenvalue problems.« less
  • Recent advances in high performance computing systems and sensing technologies motivate computational simulations with extremely high resolution models with capabilities to quantify uncertainties for credible numerical predictions. A two-level domain decomposition method is reported in this investigation to devise a linear solver for the large-scale system in the Galerkin spectral stochastic finite element method (SSFEM). In particular, a two-level scalable preconditioner is introduced in order to iteratively solve the large-scale linear system in the intrusive SSFEM using an iterative substructuring based domain decomposition solver. The implementation of the algorithm involves solving a local problem on each subdomain that constructs themore » local part of the preconditioner and a coarse problem that propagates information globally among the subdomains. The numerical and parallel scalabilities of the two-level preconditioner are contrasted with the previously developed one-level preconditioner for two-dimensional flow through porous media and elasticity problems with spatially varying non-Gaussian material properties. A distributed implementation of the parallel algorithm is carried out using MPI and PETSc parallel libraries. The scalabilities of the algorithm are investigated in a Linux cluster.« less
