Abstract: Traditional FEM algorithm analysis for a serial processing computer can not satisfy the demand of scientific research and engineering technology development. Parallel processing technology provides a new prospect for solving this kind of problems. Cluster parallel computer uses a very popular parallel processing method at present. Based on the features of FE Method, this paper proposes a parallel finite element algorithm, together with an Object-Oriented FEM program under multi-parallel computers with distributing memory. The calculated examples show that this algorithm improves analyzing efficiency with simple organization.
