Keywords: finite element method, domain decomposition, partitioning, parallel.
An introduction to the domain decomposition method for parallel finite element analysis is presented. The domain decomposition method allows decomposition of large-size problem solutions to solutions of several smaller size problems. Algorithms of domain partitioning with compute load balancing as well as direct and iterative solution techniques are considered.
