Revised: 27 June 2002
A finite element code, called ZéBuLoN was parallelised some years ago. This code is entirely written using an object oriented framework (C++ is the support language). The aim of this paper is to present some problems which arose during the parallelization, and some innovative solutions. Especially, a new concept of message passing is presented which allows to take into account SMP machines while still using the parallel virtual machine abstraction.
