ABSTRACT
This paper is declared a work of the U.S. Government and is not subject to copyright protection in the United States} sequential finite-volume numerical procedure for solving the time-dependent Maxwell equations has been ported to multicomputers using the Message Passing Interface, Power Fortran, and autotasking programming models. The ported softwares were tested on a 256-node IBM SP, and a 32-node, as well as a 64-node SGI Origin 2000 systems. The parallel and the computing efficiency of different programming models are assessed for future research efforts. A previously unobtainable high frequency bistatic radar cross-section from this method calculation for a perfectly electrical conducting sphere is demonstrated and verified.
