A note on anisotropic interpolation error estimates for isoparametric quadrilateral finite elementsApel, Th. 30 October 1998 (has links) (PDF)
Anisotropic local interpolation error estimates are derived for quadrilateral and hexahedral Lagrangian finite elements with straight edges. These elements are allowed to have diameters with different asymptotic behaviour in different space directions.
The case of affine elements (parallelepipeds) with arbitrarily high degree of the shape functions is considered first. Then, a careful examination of the multilinear map leads to estimates for certain classes of more general, isoparametric elements.
As an application, the Galerkin finite element method for a reaction diffusion problem in a polygonal domain is considered. The boundary layers are resolved using anisotropic trapezoidal elements.

Variable preconditioning procedures for elliptic problemsJung, M., Nepomnyaschikh, S. V. 30 October 1998 (has links) (PDF)
For solving systems of grid equations approximating elliptic boundary value problems a method of constructing variable preconditioning procedures is presented. The main purpose is to discuss how an efficient preconditioning iterative procedure can be constructed in the case of elliptic problems with disproportional coefficients, e.g. equations with a large coefficient in the reaction term (or a small diffusion coefficient). The optimality of the suggested technique is based on fictitious space and multilevel decom position methods. Using an additive form of the preconditioners, we intro duce factors into the preconditioners to optimize the corresponding conver gence rate. The optimization with respect to these factors is used at each step of the iterative process. The application of this technique to twolevel $p$hierarchical precondi tioners and domain decomposition methods is considered too.

The finite element method with anisotropic mesh grading for elliptic problems in domains with corners and edgesApel, Th., Nicaise, S. 30 October 1998 (has links) (PDF)
This paper is concerned with a specific finite element strategy for solving elliptic boundary value problems in domains with corners and edges. First, the anisotropic singular behaviour of the solution is described. Then the finite element method with anisotropic, graded meshes and piecewise linear shape functions is investigated for such problems; the schemes exhibit optimal convergence rates with decreasing mesh size. For the proof, new local interpolation error estimates for functions from anisotropically weighted spaces are derived. Finally, a numerical experiment is described, that shows a good agreement of the calculated approximation orders with the theoretically predicted ones.

Local inequalities for anisotropic finite elements and their application to convectiondiffusion problemsApel, Thomas, Lube, Gert 30 October 1998 (has links) (PDF)
The paper gives an overview over local inequalities for anisotropic simplicial Lagrangian finite elements. The main original contributions are the estimates for higher derivatives of the interpolation error, the formulation of the assumptions on admissible anisotropic finite elements in terms of geometrical conditions in the threedimensional case, and an anisotropic variant of the inverse inequality. An application of anisotropic meshes in the context of a stabilized Galerkin method for a convectiondiffusion problem is given.

Partitionierung von FiniteElementeNetzenReichel, U. 30 October 1998 (has links) (PDF)
The realization of the finite element method on parallel computers
is usually based on a domain decomposition approach. This paper is
concerned with the problem of finding an optimal decomposition and an
appropriate mapping of the subdomains to the processors. The quality
of this partitioning is measured in several metrics but it is also
expressed in the computing time for solving specific systems of
finite element equations.
The software environment is first described. In particular, the data
structure and the accumulation algorithm are introduced. Then
several partitioning algorithms are compared. Spectral bisection was
used with different modifications including KernighanLin refinement,
postprocessing techniques and terminal propagation. The final
recommendations should give good decompositions for all finite
element codes which are based on principles similar to ours.

Parallel solution of finite element equation systems: efficient interprocessor communicationApel, T., Haase, G., Meyer, A., Pester, M. 30 October 1998 (has links) (PDF)
This paper deals with the application of domain decomposition methods for the parallel solution of boundary value problems for partial differential equations over a domain $Omegabset R^d$, $d=2,3$. The attention is focused on the conception of efficient communication routines for the data exchange which is necessary for example in the preconditioned cgalgorithm for solving the resulting system of algebraic equations. The paper describes the data structure, different algorithms, and computational tests.

On the preconditioning in the domain decomposition technique for the pversion finite element method. Part IIvanov, S. A., Korneev, V. G. 30 October 1998 (has links) (PDF)
Abstract Pversion finite element method for the second order elliptic equation in an arbitrary sufficiently smooth domain is studied in the frame of DD method. Two types square reference elements are used with the products of the integrated Legendre's polynomials for the coordinate functions. There are considered the estimates for the condition numbers, preconditioning of the problems arising on subdomains and the Schur complement, the derivation of the DD preconditioner. For the result we obtain the DD preconditioner to which corresponds the generalized condition number of order (logp )2 . The paper consists of two parts. In part I there are given some preliminary re sults for 1D case, condition number estimates and some inequalities for 2D reference element.

Nutzung von MPI für parallele FEMSystemeGrabowsky, L., Ermer, Th., Werner, J. 30 October 1998 (has links) (PDF)
Der Standard des Message Passing Interfaces (MPI) stellt dem Entwickler paralleler Anwendungen ein mächtiges Werkzeug zur Verfügung, seine Softwa re effizient und weitgehend unabhängig von Details des parallelen Systems zu entwerfen.
Im Rahmen einer Projektarbeit erfolgte die Umstellung der Kommunikationsbibliothek eines bestehenden FEMProgrammes auf den MPIMechanismus. Die Ergebnisse werden in der hier gegebenen Beschreibung der CubecomImplementierung zusammengefasst.
In einem zweiten Teil dieser Arbeit wird untersucht, auf welchem Wege mit der in MPI verfügbaren Funktionalität auch die Koppelrandkommunikation mit einem einheitlichen und effizienten Verfahren durchgeführt werden kann.
Sowohl fuer die Basisimplementierung als auch die MPIbasierte Koppelrandkommunikation wird die Effizienz untersucht und ein Ausblick auf weitere Anwendungsmoeglichkeiten gegeben.
