Paper Abstract

We detail the use of an optical linear algebra processor for a finite element processing application. A linear time-varying structural mechanics finite element earthquake case study is described. The structure response under earthquake loading is considered, and the solution is obtained with the Newmark direct integration algorithm. The optical architecture for performing the required computationally burdensome banded matrix-vector operations is reviewed. The case study was solved on a laboratory version of the optical processor, and the results are presented.
