User Manual for Finite Element and Finite Difference Programs: A Parallel Version of NISTIR 6269 and NISTIR 6997

Abstract

This document contains the descriptions, algorithms, user information and listings of the parallel Fortran90/MPI versions of the suite of programs found in NISTIR 6269, Finite Element and Finite Difference Programs for Computing the Linear Electric and Elastic Properties of Digital Images of Random Materials. These programs use 3-D digital image data on random materials as input and then calculate the effective properties of the random material when subjected to applied fields (for example, mechanical/thermal stresses and AC/DC electric fields). The purpose behind this undertaking is to execute these programs in a parallel computing environment (for example, Linux clusters), so as to decrease real-time execution, increase potential problem size, and increase digital resolution/problem accuracy.
