Modification of FEM (Finite Element Method) program PAK-S using dynamic memory allocation. Embedding a method for packing a stiffness matrix into memory using a red-black tree. Development and improvement of the parallelization of the PAK-S program using the MUMPS solver for solving sparse matrices using the MPICH implementation of the MPI standard. Adaptation and development of the SPH (Smoothed Particle Hydrodynamics) program. Solving the problem of generating and deleting SPH particles using the so-called “life cycle algorithm”. Using this algorithm, blood flow through arteries was modeled.
