Keywords: boundary element method, parallel computing, wave scattering problems.
A boundary element library for parallel solution of engineering problems is presented in this paper. The boundary element method is especially suitable for solving problems stated in unbounded domains, since the problem is reduced to the boundary of the domain. The structure of the library is described with focus on the module for parallel solution of wave scattering problems. The parallelization in shared memory using OpenMP is described and the possible parallelization in distributed memory using MPI is discussed. The results for numerical experiments are presented in the last part of the paper.
