The objective of this paper is to analyze the impact of data mapping strategies on the performance of finite element applications. First, we describe a parallel mesh decomposition algorithm based on recursive spectral bisection used to partition the mesh into element blocks. A simple heuristic algorithm then renumbers the mesh nodes. Large three-dimensional meshes demonstrate the efficiency of those mapping strategies and assess the performance of a finite element program for fluid dynamics.
