Summary

New generation multiprocessor computers and parallel processing provide an opportunity to improve the computing efficiency by orders of magnitude. Parallel processing is evolving as one of the most promising approaches for large-scale engineering computations. The first of its kind, this book presents applications of parallel processing in structural engineering.

The book starts with introductory materials on parallel processing concepts for those unfamiliar with the subject. In subsequent chapters the authors present detailed step-by-step algorithms for analysis and optimization of structures on a parallel machine based on their pioneering research performed during the second half of the 1980s. They describe special strategems for maximizing the speedup of the parallel algorithms. Implementation of the algorithms on the programming language C is discussed in detail.
