A Parallel-Distributed Implementation of the Pinball Algorithm for Contact-Impact 971532

The extensions to a basic explicit finite element code for execution in a parallel-distributed environment are described. A parallel-distributed implementation of the pinball algorithm for contact-impact is presented. The parallel algorithm employs message-passing for interprocessor communication. Nonlinear benchmark calculations for network-connected Hewlett Packard workstations and the IBM SP-1 are also presented.
