Abstract

A cellular element method turns the global analysis of the finite element method into a series of partial analyses. The final overall balance is achieved through the partial unbalanced transfer of force. The requirement for computer memory is extremely low and parallel algorithms are easy to implement. However, the computing speed is slower than that of the finite element method. To solve this problem, an improved algorithm was put forward and the basic principle was described. The detailed calculation steps were listed and five different density grid models were given as examples. The computing time of the two algorithms were compared and the results show that the computing speed by the improved algorithm was increased significantly.
