Abstract

The present paper discusses finite element computational schemes, data structures and interprocessor communication strategies for the implementation of advanced manufacturing simulations with particular emphasis on isothermal resin transfer molding (RTM) process manufacturing simulations on the symmetric multiprocessor (SGI Power Challenge). Thin shell composite mold configurations are used to illustrate the validity of the present implementation of a recently developed and new pure finite element implicit methodology in conjunction with a diagonal preconditioned conjugate gradient method for parallel computations including the process simulations techniques in a SGI Power Challenge node. The techniques developed are applied to large scale problems using a Power Challenge node to demonstrate the practical applicability.
