Effective Use of the IBM 3090 Vector Facility for Engineering Analysis 872532

Abstract

Computerized modeling techniques are used extensively in many fields of engineering analysis. The speed of computerized analysis can be increased significantly through effective use of a vector processor. Representative performance gains are shown by benchmark examples, and straightforward techniques for improving performance are described. A tuning methodology for vector processors is summarized in table form by goal, symptom, and appropriate action.
