GPU based parallel FDEM for analysis of cable structures

Milko Batinić, Hrvoje Smoljanović, Ante Munjiza, Ante Mihanović

Abstract

A combined finite-discrete element method, adapted for the analysis of a parallel cable element model using graphic cards, is presented in the paper. The basic objective is to speed up sequential computation time by one or two orders of magnitude. The developed solution is implemented in the open-source FDEM Y code. Performance measurements for this solution are conducted on simple examples, and relevant discussions are made.

Keywords
finite-discrete element method, cable element, GPU parallelisation
