Example 561: 8 prolate spheroidal ventricular elements processed in parallel

Finite elasticity analysis of an 8 prolate element mesh using parallel processing techniques. The global stiffness matrix is assembled from element stiffness matrices which are calculated concurrently on a network of Silicon Graphics and Dec Alpha workstations. IMPORTANT: This example requires 'proxies' on the alpha and/or a '.rhosts' file on the SGI network so that the 'rsh' command will be able to spawn the remote processes automatically (see your system manager for these privileges).


The comfile run by this example is as follows:
