Finite Element Analysis, FEM

January 19, 2024

A common HPC workload involving the solving of certain types of advanced equations across a wide variety of fields. FEM problems are found in simulations of structural loads on buildings, the forces on a vehicle in a crash safety test, the movement of biological structures like joints, and many other problems. Most often an MPI-based workload, as the overall goal, regardless of the underlying application technicalities, is to simulate certain types of forces across a given calculation space all relative to and interacting with each other.
