dc.description.abstractIn this paper, we evaluate strategies of domain decomposition in Grid environment to solve mesh-basedapplications. We compare the balanced distribution strategy with unbalanced distribution strategies. While the former is acommon strategy in homogenous computing environment (e.g. parallel computers), it presents some problems due tocommunication latency in Grid environments. Unbalanced decomposition strategies consist of assigning less workload toprocessors responsible for sending updates outside the host. The results obtained in Grid environments show that unbalanceddistributions strategies improve the expected execution time of mesh-based applications by up to 53%. However, this is not truewhen the number of processors devoted to communication exceeds the number of processors devoted to calculation in thehost. To solve this problem we propose a new unbalanced distribution strategy that improves the expected execution time up to43%. We analyze the influence of the communication patterns on execution times using the Dimemas simulator.
