Title On Ordering Elements for a Frontal Solver
Abstract The efficiency of the frontal method for the solution of finite-element problems depends on the order in which the elements are assembled. We look at using variants of Sloan's algorithm to reorder the elements. Both direct and indirect reordering algorithms are considered and are used in combination with spectral orderings. Numerical experiments are performed on a range of practical problems and, on the basis of the results, we propose a hybrid element resequencing algorithm for use with a frontal algorithm.
