Distributed parallel computing, which uses general- purpose workstations connected by a network as a large parallel computing resource, is one of the most promising trends in parallel computing. By this technique, the existing computing resources can be utilized effectively and the super-computing power can be achieved through the networked workstations without additional expenditures to buy the expensive supercomputers. In this work, parallel finite element method using domain decomposition technique has been adapted to the distributed parallel environment of networked workstations. Using the developed code, several model problems have been solved and the parallel performances have been tested on the network of eight IBM RS/6000 230 workstations. Finally, very large size of structural analysis problem over 368,000 DOFs has been solved using 36 IBM RS/6000 380 workstations connected by a network.
