FINITE ELEMENT MATRIX GENERATION ON A GPU

By A. Dziekonski, P. Sypek, A. Lamecki and M. Mrozowski

Abstract

Abstract—This paper presents an efficient technique for fast generation of sparse systems of linear equations arising in computational electromagnetics in a finite element method using higher order elements. The proposed approach employs a graphics processing unit (GPU) for both numerical integration and matrix assembly. The performance results obtained on a test platform consisting of a Fermi GPU (1x Tesla C2075) and a CPU (2x twelve-core Opterons), indicate that the GPU implementation of the matrix generation allows one to achieve speedups by a factor of 81 and 19 over the optimized singleand multi-threaded CPU-only implementations, respectively. 1
