This paper describes the parallel finite element analysis of large scale problems based on the Domain Decomposition Method with preconditioner using Balancing Domain Decomposition for a massively parallel processors. In order to solve the issue of memory shortage and computational time, the developed system employs a dynamic load balancing and hierarchical distributed data management technique. The present system is successfully applied to static elastic stress analyses, pressure vessel model of over one million with effective performances.
