Abstract:

This investigation applied parallel processing techniques to a computational electromagnetic code to see if high performance computing can improve the utility and efficiency of techniques used in ship electromagnetic designs. Efficient parallel matrix filling, factoring, and solving routines were developed, implemented, and evaluated. Several techniques for mapping the matrix columns onto the processors were also implemented and evaluated. This report lists several benefits that have resulted, or will result, from work done on this Independent Exploratory Development IED project.
